He's impressive for a radio rock drummer. So is the guitarist. If mainstream is your primary source of new music, then they're phenom. They've got to be one of the best bands on mainstream radio.
A great example of a 'capable' rock drummer is...
...Lars Ulrich. This guy blows Lars away.
The song structure and tone/distortion are what's generic about them. They're using stock high end guitars with stock high end amps and no personality to their sound at all. And the song composition is very predictable and oh so done before.
I wouldn't change the radio if they came on, if I listened to the radio. They're certainly better than whatever side project 106.5 is whoring out these days.
Very high energy stuff though, but the hooks are soft.
