Yes, generally speaking, I dislike most metal. I might post more metal later but, for that post, I only wanted to post one song.
But it isn't an emotional statement, it was to re-emphasize that we have differing tastes in music. Logically speaking, the caveat of subjectivity mustn't be overlooked. If your response had been more clear, I'm sure pretty much all of this could have been avoided.
Yeah, I pretty much disagree with all of this elitist perspective. Rather, I believe that a greater knowledge of music, however that is defined, allows a person to have a more specific understanding of their own tastes but does not significantly change them, aside from aspects that are secondary to the original qualities that they are attracted to. Of course, I can also go on about the different expectations of what music is intent to deliver but that's beside the point.
I don't understand this 'crutch to listening to music.' On the contrary, I believe that production is largely secondary to the quality of the music. I can listen past the production aesthetics of pretty much anything. However, when it comes to 'finely' produced music, it isn't so much the production itself that turns me off. Instead, over produced (I'm fine with what I deem finely produced) music gives me the sense that the music itself is contrived, overwrought, and unnatural. This isn't true of all music with lots of production, though, as you should know that I do listen to some music that has lots of production. In fact, Neurosis is one band that is very produced on record.
Actually, I had lost all expectations for responses after the having received few replies. I had even began to believe that nobody bothered listening to anything that I had posted, thus I posted less often. However, I am completely fine with option A as long as your replies are at respectful and charitable.
