I strongly, but respectfully, disagree. He was not the most important element by any means, but still critical to what made those albums sound so great. His interplay with Roi on songs like Rhyme & Reason, #41, DIDO, Bartender is one of the things that hooked me on this band. He has some really nice moments, such as the middle of Typical Situation and the one chorus of Rapunzel. Off the top of my head he's also great and noticeable on JTR and Last Stop. On SU and even BW, he was more window dressing than anything else, popping up for small moments here and there. I want more of that interplay between violin and sax than just Boyd sticking his head up for a short solo on a couple of songs.
