Did you not read the rest of the review, or...?
This message board tends to lean towards a certain type of sound(s) that this band doesn't make. I don't believe it's a fair representation of the music scene (as a whole) or pop culture when a band outside of the focus of this site is regarded in that way. They do what they do very well. I simply do not agree with your review (I actually don't agree with a lot of reviews on this site, but that's just me).
I don't believe I actually said "they do what they do well" directly in the body of the text (I did say it on my first comment on this thread), but that was certainly the general theme of what I wrote here.
As for widespread musical respect, Radiohead gets that; Bon Iver gets that; Frank Ocean gets that. Mumford & Sons do not. I'm not even holding it against them, but I don't really think you can deny the truth of the statement.
