MEAT LOAF - Bad Attitude [1985 U.S. Mix] *HQ* - full

Yesterday we featured at 0dayrox the remastered reissue of MEAT LOAF 1984’s album “Bad Attitude”. The album concentrates more on the hard rock side of Meat Loaf according to the era, enlisting Bob Kulick on electric guitar to provide more bite, especially on the solos.
The North American release of “Bad Attitude” had to wait until the next year, because as happened with many foreign artists / bands, Record Labels wanted ‘different sonics’ for the U.S. market. Accordingly, “Bad Attitude” was remixed.

Released in April 1985 by RCA Records “Bad Attitude [1985 U.S. Mix]” features different track list order as well as alternate mixes for some songs, most of them also with longer running time. The overall sound has more separated instruments, more ‘stereo’, while keyboards a less prominent in favor to Kulick guitar riffs / solos.
While this kind of re-shape in sound most the time was subtle, in the case of this album the results are noticeable. “Bad Attitude [1985 U.S. Mix]” sounds different from the European original version. So we decided to share it here for you to listen, and compare.
