No I get that, but I don't think this sounds anything like Survivor (apart from the odd obvious rip-off here and there). If any band is indicative of what Survivor may sound like now, it's Pride Of Lions, and like I said, there output has been a bit patchy, and Jim's writing style has really gone down the cabaret route of late.
I'm all for bands harkening back to another time, Two Fires debut and Sunstorm do it perfectly for me, and there are bands who have moved forward and made albums that I think are total shit, such as Journey's last studio album.
I think it's the overkill and overhype of Erik that i'm fed up with, because I never thought he was that good in the first place. If he wrote songs based on his own experiences, then maybe i'd get the feel for them. But he's like a 20-something year old Swede writing songs about dreaming, believing, feeling the fire, playing the game, hanging out on the boulevard on hot summers night's back '89, whoooaoooa, all that kinda shit... and it's all just typical AOR cliche's from his big book of 80's AOR songwriting cliche's, rather than something real, relatable or believable.
Musically, sure sound like it's 1985, but lyrically, I want a bit more depth.
