I'm not impressed by...

Pilate

Okay...I can give coldplay kudos for sort of creating a little sub-genre.
and though I like them alright...I do not like this new genre.

why?

cos of bands like Pilate who sound like a watered down coldplay-lite. it sounds so blatenly derivative...and worst..it's derivative of a band that only has two albums out

Thomas said it was the expectations of listeners that drove the band to create the most average music possible.

I thought pilate had potential... but they strayed, and put on the most listless and uninspiring live show of all time. Even still, Stabilo is on the top of my lameass list.

Well I've never heard of Pilate, but they sure sound pretty ordinary alright. I think it's a little sad if Coldplay are really responsible for their own sub-sub-genre, cause I rather like Coldplay.

I think the more toxic legacy is the Muse sub-sub genre (Radiohead's the Bends is the starting and ending point). Thoughts of a dying athiest, indeed.

see...I'm more of the opinion that, while Muse are certainly derived from bends-era radiohead
they are more like a Queen for mellodramatic, 'angst-ridden', mastabatory teenagers
