Their performance at this years Grey Cup (canadian version of superbowl) was incredibly tight.
I'm a fan. Saw them live on the For All The Right Reasons tour, and they're one of the most killer live acts I've ever seen. Also, Daniel Adair is one hell of a drummer.
They got a lot of hate early on, and then it just became cool to bash them. Like you said, they don't have a lot of depth, but that applies to thousands of bands. They've never claimed to be about anything other than having a good time and making sure their audience does as well.
