I’m often asked why I list Bat Out of Hell as a single track masterpiece rather than the whole album. When an album has such a standout title track which captures the imagination as this one does but which is on an album with other tracks which are good, but not in the same league as the “special” one, then this has often been the case as I compile this series.

Another example I could give is Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” which is taken from their 1975 album “A Night At The Opera” – great album but not a masterpiece in my opinion, whereas the track in question will live forever in the hearts and minds of those who love it.
