The Bat albums always remind me of the Terminator movies. I'm sure I've said this before (Haha!!). When James Cameron (the Jim of the Terminator movies) made the first movie, it was filmed more like an independent film, because he wasn't the big action blockbuster director again. By the time he made the sequel, he'd done the Aliens movie and The Abyss, and then the T1000 was this huge technological innovation, effects wise, that excited everyone and even today contains some of the coolest special effects from a movie ever. T2 is like the Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell, much bigger, huge blockbuster event, all of that. In that sense, Celine Dion's "It's All Coming Back" is sort of the Jim equivalent to Cameron working on "Titanic", with "Tanz" as well I'd say. They both do really towering work with "Tanz" and "Titanic", but completely different scenarios.

Meat is clearly the Arnold Schwarzenegger of the scenario. "Bat III" is "T3" because that was directed by Jonathan Mostow with no Cameron involvement, Bat 3 was Desmond Child and there was no Jim. "Braver" is "Terminator: Dark Fate" with Linda Hamilton returning.

So that's really how I look at those albums, I guess.
