Re: mellow Broadcast

A journalist summed up Broadcast not so long ago by saying something along these lines:

"They've taken an interesting descent into deep experimentalism in recent years; occasionally - and to their benefit - traces of the old pop band emerge in that experimental sound."

My view is that Broadcast is, or was, a terrific pop band with one of the most compelling vocal leads in music today. Their "experimentalism" I find aimless and tedious.

When reading an account like the one I paraphrased above, I wonder if more people (like that journalist) don't basically feel the same way, but temper their message because of the idea that "experimentalism" in music is always a good, or at least noble, thing.
