Wow. I didn't expect to see this kind of vitriol on here towards those two albums. I understand the timing may be a bit convenient but I personally think it's wonderful we are getting some new Steinman related albums out this year. All I care about is hearing the master's music. I can't go to see Bat but if they ever released an album for it, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Besides Meat's album last year this kind of stuff has been a huge rarity.
Anyway, I respect all of your opinions and hopefully as time goes on people will cool down a bit. I'm kinda sad to see this hatred after having such an awesome Steinweek to celebrate with the Bat musical. Sigh.
