That way we could know what is coming and make suggestion and opinions based on information, instead guessing and (in some cases)thinking if the end is nigh.
i said this yesterday also. eminem is the prime eg of this.his previous album was given a date lots of talk about it leading upto release then when it finally came out bang ! waves of bad press it did terrible. his latest one he just dropped it . no anything just out. he did this so people couldnt form opinions like the last album building upto release. i think many things have changed now. media, everything.the way things are released dealt with maybe does need a change. then again thats what these people are paid for. to try and find the opptimum way of keeping us happy.
