UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   Evening Standard

    Lung-bursting rock music, laden with apocalyptic cliches, big instruments and backing singers who sound as if they have been goaded by cattle-prods
    Read Review

  2. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    Everything's as big, ludicrous and bombastic as ever, but with a vulnerability that is strangely touching
    Read Review

  3. 5.0 |   Uncut

    A genuinely grim proposition. Print edition only

  4. 4.2 |   A.V. Club

    Too much of Hell In A Handbasket is just generic songwriter-mill fodder, over-cranked and over-sung

  5. 4.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

  6. 4.0 |   The Independent

  7. 4.0 |   BBC

    Read Review

  8. 3.0 |   PopMatters

    Scuppered by too many leaden ballads and self-indulgent guest spots, this outing leaves the future looking very unclear once more for Meat Loaf
    Read Review

  9. 2.0 |   Spin

    Meat Loaf offers a grotesque funhouse reflection of pop's most egregious tendencies that provides a cautionary example of how joyless striving does not lead to soulful inspiration
