Same here, I totally dig it. Their new drummer is fantastic as well, and let's face it... no one can replace Cedric.

Annoying psuedo-progressive shitheads that receive way too many compliments for how they actually sound. I have all of their albums, I don't like any of them.

I don't think they're half as good as they seem to think they are.

The first album was good but everything I have heard from them since is a long drawn out more boring version of that.

It's almost like they threw everything into their debut album and had nothing left over for the rest.

No from me.

Tough. They're one of my favorites but at the same time idk if they're "HOF" material (yet). I went yes, if nothing else for the perfection that is De-loused in the Comatorium.

No from me. De-Loused and Frances The Mute are damn good albums but they just seem to try too hard sometimes and I personally don't think that they have influenced enough good quality bands to merit a place.

Waits is a pretty unique artist, the only person that I really see drawing considerable influence is Beck. Radiohead's influence is there, but you said something along the lines of "enough great bands" and Coldplay and Muse and such don't meet that criteria imo.

Not to nitpick though. If TMV doesn't get in I can understand completely.
