A lot of the time, its not writing in "their" style...its writing in the style of _________ (place name of band).

All the old classic bands pretty were their own men. Although people would put REO, STYX, JOURNEY, TOTO, FOREIGNER, KANSAS, BOSTON together as they same, they had their identity. They set the trends of "their sound/style". These days, most of the new bands are just chasing the past, or a updated version if it. See thread above re AIRBOURNE. Its pure studied plagiarism of AC/DC.

Do I think the writing sucks? No. But there is perhaps, too much of this writing to order, writing for a singer/project, in the style of X. Ditto some of these new era 80's style bands. I like RECKLESS LOVE, but they almost totally re-write old hits. H.E.A.T on their last record seemed to go down that path. Its all very familiar. I guess all music genres are cyclic, but I guess if you were there originally when it came around the first time, you can find it hard to stomach when new generations "try" to hard to be X, Y and Z.

All that said, there is still some good music being made.
