Like Sigur Ros, I'm really unsure as to whether these guys deserve induction. I'd probably say no at the moment. Influence? Not much. Innovation? Well, I guess you could say they enhanced the melody in the slightly math-rock(y) Spiderland formula, but that isn't much. And again, these guys are horribly arrogant and stupidly inconsistent -- their best album, Young Team, is marred by "With Portfolio" -- and they sure aren't going to release any material from now on that will influence anybody, so we'll have to sit and wait.
