I love melodic rock but I have one big problem: Many of the supposedly awesome bands has atrocious lyrics I just can't stand. AT ALL. Cheesy, sappy ballads, hideous attempts at rock lyrics (usually with the world rock in the title)

So I ask of you, good people, give me something that isn't just good musically, but also lyrically.

Only two bands have stuck with me, and they are the following:

Magnum - My favourite band of all time. Tony Clarkin is a lyrical maestro. Has written countless of timeless songs with amazing lyrics.
TEN - Very hit and miss band, and some ballads are just way too sappy. BUT Gary Hughes writes very interesting and poetic lyrics when he's in the mood.

So I ask of you... what melodic rock would you have me check out that focuses both on musical and lyrical quality?

Cheers for all your help!

//Tom
