Do bands like Touche Amore and La Dispute count? Diehard fan bases and critical acclaim despite appealing to a niche market. A bit like the bands you mentioned (at least until JEW broke through).

Ween is the most underrated band of the past 30 years, almost definitely. The Mollusk is a top 20 all time album for me. Music doesn't have to be serious to be brilliant.

New song sounds great,...

They "flopped" through no fault of their own. It was because their fans were well and truly outnumbered by people in need of (but unwilling to partake in) a musical education.

Appeal to Reason was hit or miss. Endgame was all halfway between hit and miss -- nothing terrible but nothing outstanding. The three albums before that all belong on a modern punk rock pedestal. And...

I prefer CDs for various reasons, but my brother has started a pretty cool vinyl collection. His copy of The '59 Sound has the 'record being put on' noise at the start, just like the CD. So if you...

Yeah I didn't say he was criticising them. If anything I felt he was saying they don't rock, and they don't in the traditional sense. But each of them stems from an origin that is more in line with...

Vampire Weekend have only become more singular in their sound after initially worshipping Graceland... Chvrches fit with many other synth-pop bands, but they definitely have their own sound. Haim...

The only people who think Linkin Park truly "rock" are the kind who grew up scratching KORN (with the R backwards) into wooden park benches.

Linkin Park is still more mainstream than even...

I still haven't listened to Rented World, going to hold off until I can get my hands on it. But OTIP is the best album released so far this decade apart from MBDTF. I could sit here and yell every...

In a lot of circles, OTIP was the record that had to live up to a classic from a basically-unknown band, especially after PunkNews gave Chamberlain Waits AOTY.
