Nah. They're unoriginal and middle of the road (at least that latest album - I haven't listened to anything prior to that). If that equates to appalling in your book then that probably says more about you than them... Now that Jack White album - that was appalling - a dissonant and discordant jumble. Total crap.
Had a brief listen to Dinosaur Jr though and I like them. Kind of a Foo Fighters vibe to the guitar harmonics and vocals but more laid back and reflective.
