Default Don't think other people like your music, they don't.

I was reading an Amazon review yesterday and the reviewer posted that they loved the recording so much that they were buying it as Christmas gifts for all their friends and family. Oh boy!

What a narcissitic person. When you buy gifts, if you're considerate and thoughtful, you buy them what they like, not what you like. Just because you love a recording doesn't mean your friends and family will. THat's almost never the case. Music taste is extremely personal. But people think if they are moved by a recording they just must share it with the world. The tragedy is that those CDs will never even be listened to once in most cases. Most people are not music fanatics and the ones that are all have wildly different taste.

Blast away...
