I think Jet's problem was always a bit of an identity crisis - where they could never decide whether they wanted to be AC/DC or The Beatles.
With this new album, it seems they've at least ditched most of The Beatles influence, but what they've replaced it with is even more indecision over what their sound should be.
The Black Crowes - since they went indie, just decided that they no longer had any desire to "dance for the man" anymore. Meaning they don't care if they write "hit singles" and just want to be a "band" in the vein of The Band. If you still dig their music, great - if not, they simply don't care, because they are the ones funding it.
Oasis - now that Noel's left the band, again, does it really matter?
Def Leppard - well, either they lost it after "High N' Dry", or they never have. Loved the last album.
Metallica - don't care, never did.
