That's always been my point with those overhyped, "100%" albums... It's 32 years on, and Escape and 4 are still albums that people listen to and still buy in new formats, and in another 32 years, Don't Stop Believing and Waiting For A Girl Like you will still be on adverts, TV shows and blockbuster movies, keeping interest in that album alive.
W.E.T or Eclipse or whoever? They barely last 32 weeks of being the next big thing, before the next big thing that's 100% and the greatest album in so many years has come along.
There has to be a reason for that. You can tell me "it was a time and a place, a different era, radio play" all you want, but there's more than that. If I play Don't Stop Believing to a mate or a kid or whatever, they'll love that. If I followed that up with the new W.E.T single they'd more often than not snort and go "what's this shit?!" (Really good example of this would be Pride Of Lions, as i've had that happen more than once).
Only really H.E.A.T and Vega have done anything for me out of the crop of non-project, new bands, but I can understand why they aren't for everyone.
