But he's not continuing to write fresh new material, is he?
The last album he wrote, a very good Americana-rock sounding album, that Andrew somehow mistook for "Country", was not lapped up by fans here.
His new album is written by a guy who tries too hard to make everything sound like it was written in America in 1985, but just ends up sounding cliche'd, because it was actually written by a Swedish kid in 2012.
I'm sorry but you can't convince me otherwise, because that's all I hear.
If you want an album that sounds like it was written in 1985, go and dig out some of the many unreleased demo's from that era and have someone record them. If you want an artist to sound like themself in 2012, have them write their album in 2012, or at the very least collaborate on it.
W.E.T is so far about the only thing I can really listen to by Erik... and even then, i'm not the humongous fan of it that so many here seem to be.
Don't like Eclipse, don't like Hicks, not interested in The Friday Night's and really couldn't stand Toby Hitchcock or Jimi Jamison's new albums. Pretty much all for the same reason. It's trying to sound like something it's not. It feels too false.
