      This album’s artwork was a showoff masterpiece to show a new Phantom of the Opera. This album in full and the other two bats showed a rock ’n roll equipment to Phantom of the Opera.

      Being that of love, romance, danger and so much excitement the true to pick ’n roll fan to burst (combust!) into flames. This album will be the here for generations to come. People in the future will come this understanding you have Phantom of the Opera and the biggest comparable to that Bat Out of Hell and the other two bats! Can’t wait to see the musical (and how about a movie!) These would rock. Let’s give applause to the two who did this (Jim Steinman & Meat Loaf). It took great passion even to release it themselves on their own (not to commercialize it) but make it their own (kind of Disney with an R rating!). Hands up and a giant applause, nothing will ever compare to the romantic beauty of this rock ’n roll opera. Folks, give praise where it is due for genius!
