''Blind Before I Stop'' is a 1986 album by Meat Loaf. The album was produced in Germany by Frank Farian and was the first to fully embrace the 80s sound. Critics were concerned about the album missing the characteristic Steinman-influenced sound by incorporating synth chords and samples. According to Meat Loaf's 1998 autobiography, he would have preferred to wait to work with more Steinman material, but his contractual obligations with Arista required him to complete two more albums by the end of the 1980s, including this album and a live album.

Meat Loaf co-wrote three of the songs on the album. One of them, "Blind Before I Stop", was performed live on ''Saturday Night Live'', with Meat Loaf playing guitar. "Rock 'n' Roll Mercenaries", a duet with rock singer John Parr, was released as a single in the UK. Meat Loaf never managed to sing the song live with Parr because of an incident just after the release of the single. During a sold out show in London, the singer failed to introduce Parr onto the stage. Even after leaving dozens of phone messages begging for forgiveness, the tour never reincorporated Parr. During his late 1980s tour of Europe, Meat Loaf picked up pianist Frank Doyle. Richard Raskin had made contributions to arrangements on previous musical tracks some years before and his style can still be heard on bass.

The single, "Getting Away with Murder", also spawned a music video . Tracks from this album were on featured on the CD re-release of "Bad Attitude", in lieu of inclusion of "The Very Best" album. - Wikipedia
