RTR has some asskickers on it though, Trigger, Cloud Connected, etc. It's actually the album that got me into them, because XM radio used to play Cloud Connected all the time. And despite having plenty of synths, CC is still a great tune because it's tastefully done and fits their sound. You have to like a band that can write a great chorus, too.
