Editorial Reviews

The famously bombastic rock singer Meat Loaf treats his fans to a rarely intimate live performance in this episode of VH1's STORYTELLERS series. Taking time to candidly answer audience questions about the inspiration behind his music, Meat Loaf performs classics such as "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth," "Bat Out of Hell," "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," and more.

What a musical DVD! This is one of the musical DVD's that makes DVD really worthwhile. While the DVD is a little "too chatty", the music is great. Meat Loaf is great and Patty Russo as the lead female is outstanding. She has a great complementary voice on several songs and has incredibly expressive eyes. If you think Meat Loaf is old news, think again. This DVD is one of those select DVD's that makes surround sound and DVD really worthwhile.

I have eagerly anticipated many DVD releases in the past - but none more so than this. Meat Loaf's VH-1 Storytellers is described as "One of the biggest intimate experiences that you'll ever have..." and it certainly is. In fact, I would go even further to say that this show defines entertainment. I watched the show on television, and although I enjoyed it, I knew that too much lay on the cutting room floor. As one reviewer has already said, "you just can't edit Meat Loaf". The locker-room setting creates a wonderful ambience, coupled with Meat Loaf who is clearly loving every moment as much as the audience. His voice, in my own opinion, has never sounded better - and this is also true of his wonderful band. (Patti Russo's sound and performance just has to be witnessed.) Together they beautifully blast out many of his classic songs. (If you think that Meat Loaf is just about Bat Out Of Hell, well, oh how mislead you are! Either way, in my opinion, he gives the best ever captured performance of this song on Storytellers. He just gets better! ). Meats storytelling is captivating. His interaction with the audience is deep, and his ability to act into a character is incredible. One fine example is Meat reading the original story lead into "More Than You Deserve". So few words, but yet so moving. You can see why Meat is so successful in Hollywood. The show will make you cry, but more than anything you will laugh. He's a very funny guy! So what I didn't like? A couple of songs are still missing; "Lawyers, Guns and Money" is one. I would also like to have seen all the new songs, especially, "Is Nothing Sacred". The disc is encoded for Region 1 only, being British, I also had to invest in new DVD player, but it was worth it!Read more ›

I use to "Like" Meatloaf. Now I "Love" Meatloaf. This VH1 Storytellers is by far the best one yet. Not only do you hear great music during it, you also get to know Meatloaf and his family and the struggles they all went through. You walk away with a great sense of love and admiration for this man and his music. He is truly Larger then Life! Sit back, relax and have a box of kleenex handy. This is definately a MUST see!

I watched the show on VH1 and wasn't particularly impressed. I didn't think it flowed well, frankly it was disjointed. But having seen many a Meat show, I suspected they simply found what fans have known for years - you can't edit this stuff! The song's 10 minutes long and that's that... add a 5 minute story and it gets tough to squeeze in the show between all the commercial breaks. Well, this DVD is just the answer! Songs and stories unabridged - it's a wonderful thing! Over 50 minutes more than the TV show. When heard in context, everything works! Truly a great show, a great performance, a great DVD! My fave... More Than You Deserve, although Meat doesn't do the whole song, the part he does sing and the prologue were stunning! If you like Meat Loaf, you'll LOVE this DVD - BUY IT!

Wow, 10 stars is not enough! Just watched... Experienced (a better description) this wonderful concert for the 3rd time. Beautiful, exciting, humerous, always entertaining and often deeply moving... great music, sound and performances; and Meatloaf is absolutely charming in the chat between songs. This is the best of the VH1 Storytellers and a DVD that I will cherish for a long time. Thanks Meatloaf!

This is a must buy for all Meat Loaf fans and for anyone who enjoys the very best of music , The whole production of this dvd is truly briliant and its so hard not to watch it again and again , Its a complete insight to one of the worlds best performers and shows why an award should be given to Meat Loaf and the rest of the band for giving so many songs that mean so mush to so many people , and for that I thank you Meat .

This DVD is a masterpiece. MeatLoaf in a quiet surrounding, in fact a locker room, with about 100 fans rocks the house completely. He chews his gigantic gum all the time, but the music is as sweet as ever. The scene where he lures two fans up to perform the "third base scene" in Paradise by the dashboard ligth is great. All his greatest classics are included:
1. All revved up and no place to go
2. Two out of three aint bad
3. A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
4. You took the words right out of my mouth
5. Id do anything for love (but I wont do that)
6. Rock and roll dreams come through
7. More than you deserve
8. Heaven can wait
9. Paradise by the dashboard light
10. Bat out of hell
It is in DD 5.1 and DD 2.0 sound, with lyrics and some DVD ROM features for PC (Not tested). Picture quality is good and the running time about 100 minutes, so you really get your moneys worth. If youre a dedicated Meat Loaf fan, this is a must. If youre not, you might like it anyway.
