He comes close, because Jim doesn't write fillers and that's why it doesn't feel like there are any songs like that in his work, but he's not infallible.
"The Dream Engine" had a few songs that weren't too spectacular for me, but it could be forgiven, certainly, because these were his first songs.
"More Than You Deserve" had this song called "Mama, You better watch out for your daughter" which was a pretty big blunder for me, but again this is still pretty early on in his songwriting too. It's probably more the scene itself that bothers me, but the song isn't all that spectacular either. It's clever how it changes in the middle.
"Rhinegold" is pretty cool, but "Master of the Earth" is probably the weakest one in there. It's probably not fair of me to be judging "Rhinegold" though, since these all seem to be tapes that were done in rehearsals, with someone playing at the piano. It was probably much better when it was being performed, but Andre is having loads of fun here and that's always cool to listen to.
There are some people who feel that "Peel Out" and "Everything is Permitted" on "Dead Ringer" are pretty weak songs, considering what Jim had written before that, but I disagree. I especially love "Permitted".
"Ravishing" and "Rebel Without a Clue" on Bonnie's second album with Jim are perhaps not as good as the songs they were doing the first time around, but I hear lots of people loving the "Ravishing" one, and it's the same music/tracks from "Hulk Hogan's Theme". I think it's a great theatrical piece of music.
From that point, I really can't think of anything after that, except "If it Ain't Broke (Break it)" from "Wuthering Heights" which Meat then covered on "Bat III", but that's because they released the edited version of the song, which was always "Only When I Feel". That's the way "Break it" was intended to be heard. Even on Meat Loaf's "Braver", Meat only recorded the first part of "Only When I Feel".
