I can see the point most of you raised regarding the quality of the songs. I see it more as their songs not being as immediate as "Cherry Pie" or crap of that level.

Not everything they wrote was great, fair enough. But that is true of many bands. I find very little to save in Warrant, Ratt, Poison, Motley Crue, Roxy Blues, Dokken, Every Mother's Nightmare, Herricane Alice, Pretty Boy Floyd and others.

I would disagree with Scott regarding the X factor. If having the X factor means having a hit songs that fit the flavour of the month, then Justin Bieber has the X factor. Not having a hit song doesn't mean your songs are bad.

I think songs like "Double Trouble", "Take A Chance" or "Dreaming Again" were really good.

I guess that for die-hard melodic rock fans, RC were way to bluesy and groovy.
