They are not without worthwhile criticism. I've soured on the inconsistency of their albums. They were for the most part a singles band. Though I do consider the 'White Album' one of the best albums ever, even if it was a happy accident.

They were not really innovators either. But were masters of assimilating what others were doing and packaging it. As such their timing as impeccable. As was the timing of their breakup.

Spot on.

I think many of the musical masters were masters of assimilation, Stereolab included (albeit from a different era). Bowie made a long career out of taking other people's ideas and passing them off as his own.
