One of his more wide ranging albums

MeatLoaf does well on this album:
I found Razor's Edge to be a little shallow on his talents, but the title track made up for it.
Wolf at Your Door was a good choice for the early 1980's that may not hold up well now but meant much more back then.
Keep Driving was a tad reminiscent of his earlier work with Steinmaan, and showed some unseen talent in the writing.
His cover of "Promised Land" was loud, bombastic, and MeatLoaf at his finest.
You Never Can be Too Sure About The Girl was another song that brought out a touch of Steinman, but it fell a little short.
Priscilla is a great coming of age song for teenaged girls, something not done often when this album was made.
Don't You Look At Me Like That is a VERY overlooked and underappreciated duet. It could have been the prequel to his duet "Is nothing Sacred Anymore?"
If You Really Want to was a typical early 1980's ballad, so no highs or lows here.
Fallen Angel was a somewhat disturbing song for me: the message wasn't clear, but the imagery was. Hard to determine what the goal/intent of the tale is, but at least it's pleasing to the ears.

All in all, a good album. I would recommend it for the 'Loaf fan who wants to see the big guy do more than lift the rafters with his voice.

Meat Loaf proves he's the greatest artist on the planet!!

Meat Loaf is my favorite artist of all time. So it's only natural for me to try to buy all of his albums.This one is GREAT! I love it!

Alright album

The title track and "Razor's Edge" are solid tracks, but the rest of the album seems to lack cohesiveness. "Wolf At Your Door" seems to be a cheap rip-off of John Cougar Mellencamp's "Hurts So Good", but is still a decent track. A good purchase for the intense Meat fan out there.
