I would assume someone who gets a whole load of critical acclaim yet produced absolute gash.
E.g. Michael Jackson.  The Thriller album being one good song ("Billie Jean") and a load of filler that gets at times deeply embarrassing.
Or Radiohead.   Emperor's new clothes.  It's like the critics are frightened of saying "this is all meaningless shite" because the other critics will laugh at them for being mainstream.
