Yeah, this is definitely his weakest album of the last 25 years (the mostly-covers-only Kisses On The Bottom notwithstanding). The site ultimateclassicrock.com even ranked it as his weakest album ever. Of course, I certainly can't agree with that as long as Pipes Of Peace and Press To Play exist. "Lonely Road," "Heather," and "Your Loving Flame" are probably the only genuine classics here. I'd also consider "Your Way" sort of a superior update of "Bip Bop." Still, it's more interesting than your average band's output at the time.
