I agree with some things you said. But I donīt agree that Steinsongs become boring when NOT sung by Meat. Maybe its what you feel, but you can only speak for yourself. So do I.
Meat is in this business long enought not to believe everything people say. And Iīm sure he doesnīt. The man himself told us that he didnīt want to wait any longer for the album called BAT III.
Jim did some great things without Meat - Tanz der Vampire. Sisters, etc...

The last few Meat concerts I attended were all not really a pleasure for me. Meat sounded bad - "technical problems", etc. His voice wasnīt there most of the time I saw him lately. So I donīt expect much for the only June concert Iīll attend this year in Germany.

I admit they did a good job with his voice on his latest album and I agree with your last few sentences. This is exactly what I think they shouldīve done for BAT III. But Meat didnīt want to wait any longer and so it may never happen again.

Itīs a really sad ending of what began so glorious. I bet the record company wonīt spend any more money to produce a huge music video or any more singles. Maybe one more, thatīs it. Even they must have seen now what this monster really is. A failure. To begin with.

Now please donīt tell me I was bashing Meat.
