I'm not Rick Springfield's biggest fan by any means, but I can't understand for the life of me how anyone could think he can't write ballads. Honeymoon In Beirut is one of the best songs ever written, as is The Power Of Love (that fretless bass kills me!).
Incidentally, Rick didn't actually write State Of The Heart, he just added the middle section to an old Eric McCusker (Sp?) song.

P.S. I can understand if there are some songs that you have trouble listening to. I find the lyrics to My Father's Chair, for instance, a little TOO close to my personal situation.
