AllMusic Review by

Piece of the Action: The Best of Meat Loaf collects 30 songs from the larger than life rocker. At two discs, this U.K. collection would seem the perfect vehicle to showcase Marvin Lee Aday's three decades worth of material, but Piece of the Action narrows its focus on the his years with BMG and Sony, which means that anyone looking for recent hits like "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" is out of luck. That said, Meat Loaf's '70s and early '80s output provided him with the majority of his hits, making this early career anthology a worthy addition to the myriad reissues of his 1977 classic Bat out of Hell.
