Here we are with a post-Bat II Meat Loaf album that isn't Bat Out Of Hell III, so it is basically asking the question - is `Bat Out Of Hell' the only thing that makes Meat Loaf music sell?
The answer, according to the charts at least, is no. Welcome To The Neighbourhood is not a Bat Out Of Hell album - in fact, only two songs on it are written by Jim Steinman, the architect of Bat Out Of Hell I and II, but this is - regardless - one of Meat's best LPs of all time.
The double record or single CD album kicks off with Where The Rubber Meets The Road. This is a brilliant track written by Paul Jacobs and Sarah Durkee, who Meat Loaf fans may recognise as the minds behind the 1984/85 hits Modern Girl and Piece Of The Action, as well as the majority of the album Bad Attitude. It's a brilliantly written song which is somewhat tongue-in-cheek and definitely controversial - the way Meat Loaf music so has the potential to be.
I'd Lie For You (And That's The Truth) took the UK charts by storm - this beautiful ballad by Dianne Warren is a great duet which really shows off female singer Patti Russo's talent. She is also showcased elsewhere on the album. This single went no.2.
If you liked the `Bat Out Of Hell' albums, then the next track should be right up your alley. Original Sin is by Jim Steinman and was originally released in 1989 on the album of the same name by female quartet `Pandora's Box'. This short-lived group had some great songs on their one and only album, and Original Sin is definitely one that is worth of recognition.
Simple little ditty 45 Seconds Of Ecstasy is a bit of a let down after the spectacular song that precedes it, but if you are disappointed by it, then don't worry - the track that follows will inspire you to continue on with the album anyway.

Let's face it, Jim Steinman is the main driving force behind Meat Loaf. Jim Steinman+Meat Loaf=unstoppable. Jim Steinman-Meatloaf=still doing good. Meat Loaf-JimSteinman=average to mediocre. Without Jim Steinman, Meat Loaf flat out looses a great chunk of the intensity he has while working with Steinman. Surprizingly, Original Sin, one of the few Steinman songs on here, was one of the bigger dissapointments. He didn't have anywhere near the energy of Pandora's Box or even Taylor Dayne while doing this song. That in no way means the album was all bad. I'd Lie For You in particular is just as good as many of Meat's other songs. Where The Rubber Meets the Road, Runnin For the Red Light and Not a Dry Eye are all very well done and worth the album cost in themselves. Other songs: Left in the Dark (another Steinman dissapointment), Martha (ugh), and Where Angels Sing are better off skipped. It's an over all mediocre album with a bare minimum of good songs to actually make it worth picking up.

I loved it from start to finish!
This album is a rollercoaster ride through a 1940's neighbourhood, based on the true detective novels. The story of someone's life. Except the someone is you, the listener. From the opening car chase extravaganza "Where The Rubber Meets The Road" to the carnaval street party and the intimate moments afterwards in "Left In The Dark". Ron Nevisons sweeping production is captivating, although its still even more fun if you use the album in your own situation.
Two Steinman tracks, "Original Sin" and "Left In The Dark". Only slightly dissapointing song is "Runnin For The Red Light" but Meat Loafs vocal, as extraordinary as its ever been, will blast you out of the mundane.
There are more bonus's. Patti Russo duets with Meat. Her voice does wonders in every situation. Even when you open the sleeve notes you are presented with fascinating and marvellous images.
Superb!! I love it to bits, and believe that even if it did sell as much as Bat out Of Hell, Welcome To The Neighbourhood would still be under-rated.

I bought this CD at a music store today when I went there to sell a large collection of CDs and as they were going through my collection I had time to browse around their store. Being a huge Meatloaf fan this CD caught my eye as the price was a mere $2.99. I'd heard of this CD but never bothered to buy it or listen to it before. Frankly, I didn't think this CD would be that good because it's more obscure compared to some of his other work. I've always loved Meatloaf's ballads as opposed to his more 'hard rock' songs. Meatloaf sings ballads in such a tender, heartfelt way that you can't help but be moved by them. This CD has its share of ballads and the track list is an impressive 12. My personal favorites are: 'Left In The Dark', 'Not A Dry Eye In The House', 'Martha', & 'Where Angels Sing'. If you're a Meatloaf fan this CD is a MUST HAVE. It's a budget priced CD when purchased new and you can get it super cheap if you buy it used (I've seen it as low as 4 cents online). Also, with the exception of tracks 4 & 6 all of the songs are fairly long (track 7 at 7:11 being the longest). I highly recommend it!

When I first saw this album and saw the words "Songs by Jim Steinman" missing from it, my first thought was, "uh-oh"! But with the help of two Steinman songs (Original Sin and Alone in the Dark) and three Dianne Warren songs (I'd Lie For You, Not A Dry Eye in The House, and If This is The Last Kiss), it has a great deal of talent supporting it.
One reviewer commented that Diane Warren is no Jim Steinman, which is true, but she is still very talented. Meat Loaf does need Steinman, but he does have some life without him!
The best songs are of course the 5 songs by Steinman and Warren I listed above, two of which appeared on his Very Best Of" album in 1998. Sammy Haggar's "Amnesty is Granted" is far from great, but is interesting. This album reminds me much of Meat's 1984 album, "Bad Attitude, which is his only other good album that is not entirely the creation of Steinman.
These two works prove that over the years Meatloaf has grown as an artist and has perhaps even learned from Steinman! ALL IN ALL, A GOOD SOLID ALBUM THAT IS A MUST FOR ALL MEATLOAF, STEINMAN, AND WARREN FANS. One thing overlooked on about this album is the successful teamwork of Steinman and Warren, even though it is indirect since neither produces it.
I would like to see Jim Steinman and Dianne Warren work together on a future Meatloaf album with more titles written by each and produced by Steinman.
