*Everyone* says this when they first look at Python (Haskell, too).

*Almost everyone* who finally tries Python (or Haskell) soon
comes to realize that indentation-based syntax actually works
pretty well.

(The same is largely true for Lisp and "all those parentheses".)

Try Python.  Don't let the whitespace rules scare you off;
this isn't like FORTRAN, Python's layout system is well-designed
and easy to work with.
