Yeeesh. Ask that question to 20 different Magnum fans and you'll get 30 different answer :)

And if you ask 20 other rock music fans they'll probably all say Magnum are crap.

Here's my recommendation for 4 albums from their 20+ studio album discography:

Magnum II (1979)
Wings Of Heaven (1988, and their most commercially successful release)
The Visitation (2011)
Serpent Rings (2020)

The closest they came to sounding like the American AOR names you've listed would be 1990's Goodnight LA, produced by Keith Olsen.

They're my all time favourite rock band, and I do honestly think that as Magnum's sole songwriter for over 40 years, Tony Clarkin's legacy is unbeatable. And recording of their next album is already 1/2 way through!
