When I first got the chance to sit down and look at something on the web, guess what I typed? Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman. Lol. I don't remember what I found on Meat Loaf. I honestly can't. But Jim, is ingrained.

Welcome to Rockman Philharmonic
The Jim Steinman Society of the Arts

'DO YOU DARE TO DREAM HIS DREAM? YES OR NO."
And there's fantasy art which comes from Pandora's Box (which I didn't know at the time.)
'In all of us there is a lawless side like a wild beast that peers out during sleep.'

It gives you a real vibe! It felt like entering a gallery or a theatre on the internet, more than just a site, also reflecting the 'Steinman experience' listening to the music, where it felt like. More than music?

And if you said 'NO', you got hit with this page:
"And it's the backbeat of the city on a Saturday night
If you're too scared to jump
then you've gotta be shoved
It's the howling and the moaning
and the crying of the lonely and a
Stark raving love."

What WAS Dream Pollution? And again, the gallery of despair, with this grotesque hellish artwork, like something from a nightmare or something. And I've asked, and I've google image searched it, and no one so far seems to know what it actually is. But you can see it as well in the Jim opens Pandora's Box video in the background.

It was just like an EXPERIENCE. And then you find out about things like 'Pandora's Box', 'Whistle down the wind', 'Dance of the Vampires', which at that point was going to go to Broadway. I read the script in 'The Dream Engine' in awe because it was so dark and wild compared to what I was used to with Jim, but it was consistent with the imagery and the epic nature of the songs, and kind of feeling like. Should I go on? Should I go on?

'Neverland' from memory seemed to be a more toned down version, with songs like "All revved up". I'm glad you finally get to see Neverland!
