Default 72. Couldn't Have Said It Better

This is the START OUT OF HELL & ARRIVE TO HEAVEN topic.
Let's Go to Rock 'n' Roll!!!!!!

Couldn't Have Said It Better (9)

Well, I've agreed the new songs for 1st of June! Here them!
I think the title song is the best on the album. You know I'm not reconciled with the new album but I have to say you find there some very good songs. And it's that! I think it's better than I'd Lie For You. It's rocker! I love Patti in this song. She's great! Her voice sometimes more powerfuly than Meat's voice in this song.

My score: 9


Average: 9.16 (219.9/24)

I hope we can already give good votes about new songs and it won't be unrealistic...

It's the longest and also the best song on the CHSIB album. A typical gigantic Meat Loaf ballad. It has a bit of the "I'd Lie For You" style. Very superb!

10/10

Here we go, don't think this is THE best song on the album. But I just love this album.
Great song, lyrics are incredible. LOVE the beginning! The song is very powerful and both Meat and Patti sing it with so much passion.

9,5/10

The first time I heard this song I thought it was sensational. Does not quite hit me like that now after hearing it countless times but still an excellent song and performance by both Meat and Patti. Certainly one of the best tracks on the album

I give it 9 out of 10

I too was absolutely knocked out when I first heard this song. I love the lyrics, Meat's vocals are great, Patti is stunning. (When do we get a Patti solo album? I'd be first in line to buy it!) The video is great, it makes me love the song even more. My favorite part is the "angels" lines and the "silence is gold" line. I could listen to this song forever!

9.5/10

Brilliant, magic, abfab. Just love this song. So hard to choose a favorite on the CD but this would be one of mine (along with oh about 10 others!) (will say when the relevant song comes up which one I don't like!).

This is a "typical" Meat song in my opinion. From the first listen it felt familiar - but new.

My favorite line is when Patti sings "you finish me off when you finish my thoughts the way you do". Really great song writing (and singing too).

9.5/10

At last we can vote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hafta say, i do like this song, but not as much as others on CHSIB. The lyrics are good, Meat and Patti are both superb BUT for me it's definately not the best on the album by half.

7/10

to me it is not the best by far. The best part is the first part till the chorus starts.
I think it was wrong to choose this as a first single. it is so typical meat loaf song that it is wrong due to that fact. People think that it sounds like the other stuff. 8/10

I also thought that this was the best song on the album when I first got it, but now I like a couple of others even more. (My opinion of CHSIB didn't diminish, I simply found things in the other songs that were even more enjoyable to me.) That's a sure sign of a truly excellent collection of songs!

Great songs, very powerfull: I like it more and more.
The lyrics are good, but I feel the lyrics and music doesn't seem to fit as good as the do in other songs, that's just my feeling

I give it an 8!

This song is one of those songs which tend to grow on you, little by little. On the first few listens I wan't really impressed with it, but the more I hear it, the more I like it.
Musically it's very Steinmanesque, with a big theatrical feel. Beautiful featured vocals by Patti, and 'classic' backing vocals (high pitched male vocals). And I really like the "Just say nothing / don't say a word / silence is gold / don't say a word" break halfway.... and the way it builds up after that.

This song is deffiniatly one of the better songs on the album, and a title track then "Testify" would have been.

8.5/10

This is a great song. It has the classic sound of Meat, with some new bits thrown in, like the amazing sub melodies twisting around, and a great guitar solo.

One of the best on the album, and Patti sounds absolutely AMAZING!

8/10

I have to say that for me this is definitely the best song on the album, closely followed by Did I Say That, and Man of Steel.

This is because these are Meat Loaf songs, and no other artist does (or can do!) songs like these at the moment.

The rest of the album has some good songs, like Testify, Do It!, and Tear Me Down, but some of the others are too boy band for my liking.

Anyway, this song really rocks. The lyrics are great, and the music is awesome. Meat sings it really well, and Patti is stunning (she outsings him imho ).

The only slight let down is the ending, which just repeats the chorus over and over - I think an ending more like Both Of Us is always best!

Anyway, the best non-Steinman song ever, and fully a 10/10 score!

I have only heard this song once, live. It blew me away. Made me want the album right then and there. Still waiting for the album in the States.
9/10. I reserve the right to adjust this rating after I hear the studio version.

Now that I've had the US release for about a month I can say this is a 10/10
This song is easily as good as anything Meat has done in the past. An absolutly wonderful studio recording.

VocalsX2 5\5 + 5\5 =10. Their chemistry in the song an 11\10.
The music all around, 10\10

The mood the song gives off is a 10\10, would love to see it live,

overall, its an 11.5\10
