Missing the point entirely there.
Sure it has a very Journey-esque/Toto/Giant sound to it, but lyrically, it's not shit. His lyrics often have recurring themes, and you can tell it's about stuff he's into and stuff he's lived through. I don't know many AOR bands who've written more than one song about a WWII Bomber Flight Group.
I don't care if bands sound like other bands, quite the opposite, I like the familiarity, I just don't warm to songs where I can't feel the lyrics.
And Erik is one of the worst around for that at the moment.
