Is there a band that other musicians regard as technically accomplished but which is really repetitive and boring to listen to? Krugman is that one.

oh nm you already said "Radiohead."

Krugman is a big Arcade Fire fan, so this may tie it all together.

Morbo (#1,288)

Nah…Krugman would be Coldplay

Both are just copying/dumbing-down previous creations for mass consumption. One is doing it with Radiohead, the other with Keynes.

Maybe Neil Young: did some awesome shit, still kinda awesome shit, but mainly just lots of cranky shit.

I don't know about those two, but David Brooks is Taylor Swift.

Top of my head:
Gail Collins: New Pornographers
David Pogue: Owl City
Nick Kristof: Beirut
Tom Friedman: Nickelback
Mark Bittman: early Iron & Wine
