I find it really irritating that most people, even some that are considered as experts,
such as Dr. Moti Regev and Gidi Avivi, relate to Kaveret as to a nice pop group that had some success.
It was heard a lot during the reunion period, and now again because of Kutner's "Sof Onat HaTapuzim".
(Kutner, BTW, is an exception. He DOES see Kaveret's greatness).
But I've heard lots of criticism claiming that Kaveret was a compromise:
Instead of doing 'serious' rock, they had a combination of military band music, humor and some nice guitar lines.
In most cases, people relate to it as pop.
I can't understand it. Can someone really relate to The Ballad Of Ari Vederchi as pop?
Or to Inspite Of Everything (Lamrot HaKol)?
And something even more strange is that even some of Kaveret's members themselves see it that way.
Efraim Shamir has lots of criticism about Kaveret (read the interview with him in the INTERVIEWS section), and
Klapter has said in "Sof Onat HaTapuzim" that Kaveret was some sort of compromise for him, a step back to being more melodic.
