The biggest problem is that none of these bands are writing their own material. It's going to sound cookie cutter not just because of the guy producing them, but because that same guy is also writing (I'd assume) the majority of the material. Whether you think that cookie is tasty is a different matter, but I'm more interested in bands/artists who have something to say themselves.

Better than anything since the black album, but, it is pretty forgettable. Those first 4-5 albums were so damn original sounding and full of thought-out compositions, this pales in comparison. But again, much better than antything they've put out in the last 25 years.

Exactly where I am. It's better than the last 4-5 singles, but it doesn't excite me in the least.

Starts very strong, but starts dipping w/ "Make Some Noise" and doesn't quite recover until "Freedom", IMO. But, still better than most everything released in the genre so far this year.

1960s - The Doors. Only recently have I truly appreciated them but they were the epitome of "cool." 1970s - Queen. The common root to so many bands I love. (Second place goes to ABBA.) 1980s - Tough one. Could go pop (The Outfield), metal (Metallica, prob) or electronic (Depeche Mode, New Order), but I'll have to go with AOR and choose Journey because I still love the classic AOR

Only one I could find in my database with that line (“looking for answers“) is Atlantic's "Nothing to Lose", but I don't think he sounds particularly like Bryan Adams.

"WHY the need to dress like pre-pubescent Japanese school-girls" Well, why the need for glam bands in the 80s to dress like slutty California girls or midwestern moms? Like it or not, image is a big part of music - especially live music. I'd like Babymetal if it wasn't for the growls/screams. I'd give the best live band of the year award to Ghost. Absolutely brilliant and as imag

As others have thrown in, originality doesn't mean good. AOR/MHR is not where I look for original sounding bands (though the ones that *are* original have the stronger output IMO) but it is very important in genres like progressive rock. And like everyone else said, the problem with most of the bands on the scene today is that they simply don't have good strong songs. Even the ones who started ou

Dead Sara's first record was amazing, but they went more pop and mainstream with their latest. Amazing voice still. From the first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onFtcUVPuCg

Completely live -- it helps that he didn't go for stratospheric highs on the album. Keep it where it's manageable live.
