All Of Me: B4
The Giving Tree:B2 > B4
Live Or Die: B4
Mad Mad World: C5
California Dreamin: C3>C5
Party Of One: C#5
Another Day: C3 > G4
40 Days: A4
Our Lives And Our Souls: F4
Stand In The Storm: B4
Blue Sky: F#4
Fall From Grace: G#4

I`ve been notewatching his "Hell In A Handbasket" album.
Its full of pitchcorrection/autotune, but he hits quite some good notes.
Some songs didn`t have any lows below C3 so i didn`t include those.
His comfort zone seems to lie around C3 - G#4 from what i could hear on the record, the rest sounds either pinched, or strained..

Impressive sung B4s in Cry Over Me.
3:39 they start
And a nice sustained G#4 at 3:54!

That sustained A5 from California Isnt Big Enough is insane, i didn`t knew he could still pull those sorta notes off!

I`m wondering what the new album (with steinman) will bring along vocalwise..

That note - like everything else on the album - is heavily, heavily processed.

Its not insanely autotuned to death, you still hear the character of Meat`s voice, and yes, there is some pitch correction going on, The note does sound a tad robotic, but its not even close to being heavily processed.

And btw, does it matter that he needs some tuning here and there? Its a 65 year old man with a heart condition and a lung condition with about 50 kilo`s of extra weight and had troubles with his vocal cords since the mid 80s, so come on... Give him a break.

If you want to hear some heavily processed vocals listen to anything by Michael Buble from his latest album(His vocal character gets drown out by the Autotune), or listen to cher "Believe"

I`m sorry for my rant, but évery artist uses some form of pitch correction weither its autotune or melodyne they use it, and nobody bats an eye, but as soon as Meat uses it everyone loses their minds.

I don't like auto-tune or pitch correction, period. If you can't perform it live, don't sing it in the studio. Meat can't perform anything live anymore, so he really should just hang up his towel. It's embarrassing to see him warble through "Bat Out of Hell" and strain through "For Crying Out Loud." He can't even admit that his voice is trashed.

Just no.

Anyway, a friend of mine worked on "Hell in a Handbasket." It was insanely over-produced to disguise Meat's lack of vocal ability.

It was overproduced yeah, and like i said he used pitch correction here and there, sure.
BUT its not insanely processed, as in... it still sounds natural to me, they didn`t touch up too many notes, vocal lines..
Some notes sound more robotic than others, but they still all have the character of meats voice, which most of the time gets lost by extreme over producing..

That remains one of the most baffling moments in the history of music. It's like watching a pirate ship slowly sink down to the bottom of the Baltic Sea. What the actual hell, Meat?

That was quite an excellent performance! Loved the soulful runs on that!

0:00-0:25 sounds pretty good and I dig 2:40-2:43.

You gotta give him props that he can still hit a C5 though, it's not that he can't hit the notes anymore. It's that he can't hit the ones in key with the song aha

Although i kinda dig Steinmans singing on the Bad for Good album, i wonder how it would've been with Meat Loafs Bat out of Hell-style vocals. I know almost every single song from the album has been re-recorded but still…

This is beyond sad…who the fuck thought it was a good idea to organize a 2 hour set for a 60+ year old man with a voice that has been more or less shot for over 10 years. Still, gotta a give him credit for not dying on stage.
