How are they safe? They make great music.
I just find them really bland. Nothing new/exciting.

The album is laughably bad, it's genuinely become one of my 'so bad it's good' albums.

I don't get the new album hate. Is it just people reading critics writing their opinions on an album before it's release Or initial release? I just hear good music and awesome melodies especially. Put Your Money On Me, Good God Damn, Everything Now, Chemistry, We Don't Deserve... Brilliant songs to my taste, but maybe my taste sucks :? :? A lot of it reminds me of Think Tank Blur, late 70's early 80's bowie and talking heads. Electric blue is tom tom club

Textin' abbreviates the brain. Aspirin takes away the pain.

Compared to what? It's not like common people like anything new/exciting anyway

Compared to anything. I would just say they fit in the coldplay/travis/keane category. They make music which is listenable / radio friendly. It's worked for them and they have a lot of fans from it, but my personal preference is when I hear a song/album and there's new elements to it or it takes a new direction that I haven't heard before.
