Which celebrity was huge in the late seventies, gone for most of the eighties, and made a huge comeback in the early nineties. If you guessed John Travolta, you are right. But. let's not also forget about Meat Loaf. After the success of his album Bat Out Of Hell in the late 70's, this artist fell bankrupt in the mid 80's. But soon he was selling to packed clubs and bars in the late 80's and in 1993, in collaboration with songwriter John Steinman, the album Bat Out Of Hell II: Back To Hell was released. The album featured the huge hit "I Would Do Anything For Love" which reached number one. However, the third released single from the album, "Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are"  is the masterpiece. Here Meat Loaf describes his autobiographical tale in three major verses that represent summer, fall, and spring. With opera type vocals and heart felt drama, Meat Loaf speaks close to the heart, as only he can, in this cinematic tale. This is great music!
