"Instrumental" isn't a genre, though. There's nothing in common between its incarnations except a lack of vocals. A lot of classical music is instrumental. Same goes for jazz. Most post-rock is instrumental, and so are a lot of shred albums. The particular kind of instrumental music that he's talking about does mostly suck, yes. I own a Behold...the Arctopus record, and I'm not entirely sure why.
