Anaylitic Philosophy

I don't have a lot of experience with analytic philosophy, but from the little I do have, it appears tautological. For example, Frege, who was trying to isolate the psychological component from the logical in languages, looks like it heavily relies on conclusions already found within Kant's work.

I guess I am asking are there creative arguments that appear in analytic philosophy alone without it being simply a translation of older philosophy into mathematical terms?

My experience is that all 'philosophical thought' is 'analytical'/critical!
Are you referring to the masturbatory Rubic's Cube of 'formal logic'?
