I think that Dave's writing always had a trite quality to his lyrics (same goes for Christine, BTW), but he was able to pull them off much better during the Traffic/Alone Together era. After that, it was really hit or miss. Sometimes there were wonderful songs, other times the lyrics could get painful. I think my biggest objection to his Time songs is that he seemed to focus more on being a hard rocker than the AOR legend he had once been. Now, I loved the Soccer Rocks The Globe version of Blow By Blow. That WAS classic Dave Mason. But then they decided to make it hard rocker, and it just didn't work.
