I feel much the same way. After listening to both their albums, yes, they sound rather pretty, but I wind up feeling underwhelmed. Same goes for many of the "hot" bands that can't seem to stop trending.
Legend (Deluxe Edition): As much as I love the 16 tracks from the standard release, the 13 remixed/dub tracks are at least just as good if not better.
Red Snapper - Prince Blimey.
personally, i think they're great, gratefaldean. they did a wonderful set at Glastonbury a year or so back. full of sunshine and lilting harmony. baked earth and shimmering breeze; honey floating vocal coat. arms around a loved one in summer's haze. sweet cut grass and insect buzz as communal participation sends us gently home.
Still struggling over whether I like this band or not. Sometimes I think the songs and sound are just too pretty, other times, whoa! Wow.
Califone - Heron King Blues.
Captain Beefheart - Grow Fins: Rarities (1965-1982).

DE9, Closer To The Edit. oh, to hear this in an extended Drums/Space...
My end-of-year countdown, as in its last week it was so righteously and rudely interrupted by the bouncers at my company's servers' door ("You're not on the list!"). As you may be able to tell, I have found an unlocked, unguarded back door, and will keep using it until someone catches on.
Meanwhile, I was struggling over the order of finish for my favorite ten albums, my "top 10" 2011 studio albums of the year, more or less...all this list-making is so limiting, and the lines between the slots not very clear-cut at all (I did stress "in no particular order," after all, even though there really WAS some order, sort of). Playing the music on my morning and evening commutes was to be the final audition, the head-to-head test.
Anyway, listening today to two of the finalists for the top spot:
Wilco -- The Whole Love
Paul Simon -- So Beautiful or So What
Not so coincidentally, the Wilco and Simon concerts I saw last year were my two favorites as well. Maybe entirely coincidentally, each album contains a song with whistling.
