not so. ive been a PJ fan since ten and i love all of their stuff they have done. while some efforts are better than others they dont attempt to recreate the same sound after each album like alot of bands. whether you like it or not they try to be original on each release. ten is one of the greatest rock albums of all time and trying to compare it to any of their other albums is really not fair. just think about haw many other bands brought out a classic first album (say STP for example) and failed to bring out anything any where near as good. id say the only album that really didnt appeal to me was no code. theat album they attempted to sound like neil young (since he was a big influence to eddie and the rest at the time. they played on one of his songs on the single relase merkinball for his album mirroball which eddie sang backup vocals for one of the tracks.and was relesed around the same time) and even that album had a couple really good songs on it (ie red mosquito and hail hail).
edit well it appears my long wind blown post took to long and ironman beat me to the the exact same point. ah well 2 guys with almost the same overall opinion on a band means we be right and yall be wrong
