which bands would you not hesitate in buying their latest material despite hearing negative feedback/bad reviews/not hearing any new material.
QOTSA for me. Loved SFTD, and when LTP came out I had no qualms buying it on release despite a few bad reviews, and I loved the album. Same with Era Vulgaris, despite being underwhelmed by the lead single. so i have faith they will always deliver.
Radiohead would also fit the criteria although HTTT was a bit disappointing for me.
