No you are not , you understand the drama . Also the fact that a singer should become the song , not feel the song but become the song and all that goes with it. Singers just start singing because they have a good voice without every understanding the Art , that is not something a vocal coach will teach you unless (HE or HER teaches opera ) Besides having that style of voice , that is something the Great opera and a few Jazz singers understood in the 30's and 40's . That is why they called Sinatra the king . Audiences and other performers in that period seemed to understand much more than they do in this time period . Now all anyone is looking for is instant gratification. They walk on stage yes they can sing and maybe dance , but the have no idea how to really reach an audience , There are a couple that do Bette Middler being one . You have to make people feel like they are the only one they are sing too . That takes more work than having some one working with you on singing scales a couple of times a week . M

So Like 2 months in, after much deliberation, I have decided that...The version of 'Only When I Feel' on Braver is my favorite version.

I actually look forward to it now after Souvenirs. It fits the story.

Am I nuts?

Any chance you're gonna go see Bette do Hello, Dolly! on Broadway, Meat? She's about to break out the red dress and come down that staircase!

I wish Only When I Feel was turned into a full length song. I love Meats gritty voice in this song - you can really feel the passion.

I agree. Other than Who Needs The Young (which I really don't like) this album is growing on me. It's much better than I initially thought although there are still things I would change:

Souvenirs should be a duet or have the lyrics altered in the second half.
The backing vocals would be better without the distortion.
I don't like Meat's low, hushed voice and would have preferred the whole album to have vocals in the same tone as Godz. That song has the best vocals out of them all.
It's too short! I want more songs! I understand Body was out of the question but I wonder if anything else from Jim's back catalogue was under consideration?

Overall I still don't have a fully formed opinion yet, but Braver is better than most of Meat's other albums, but not as good as Bat 1 and 2. I'd probably put it on a par with Dead Ringer at the moment.

Suddenly on Meats facebook was a post about a signed copy of Braver via Amazon.
I was very interested so I clicked (besides having the album already).

Then I saw it... It was signed by Meat Loaf AND Jim Steinman. There were 5 left so I clicked as fast as I can! And it's mine! Completely psyched! The whole stock was sold out in 5 minutes time!

It's just the Deluxe cd with the dvd. No new extra's.
I just bought it for the signature of Jim and Meat on one booklet. Normally I don't buy a signature. But the chance is so slim I will ever meet Jim and ask for it. And my legends in one frame is just epic.

My thoughts exactly. It will hang next to my boyfriends signed Vinyl.
