"but channels the musicianship of Bayside or older Transit"
That implies that both bands have solid musicianship. It doesn't at all mean we should compare those two bands - just that I believe both have good musicianship, in very different ways.
The user's complaint was that comparing Bayside to Transit is "wildly inaccurate" - which isn't at all what I was doing.
Yeah, that's fair; especially considering "inaccurate" hardly seems like the right word to have thrown around in that scenario.
