TMR is a hilarious bundle of joy, and I only like the Nico tracks on TVU&N. Additionally there's like two or three songs on it I find unbearably monotonous and boring.

It might not seem that way to you, but it is a huge mistake actually.

It's as likely to be a mistake for me, as missing some deep-end Tori Amos album would count as a mistake to you.

I wouldn't sweat it too much, Mic. I honestly have the opposite problem as I don't really know a lot about more recent music as I tend to be more of a twentieth century guy. And unless you're reviewing every album like Trollheart, I can't imagine anyone knowing everything about every genre in music. I can go deep into the sixties in general with the possible exception of jazz, which I like, but not really that into. But if you ask me about the electropop sensation that came out in 2013, I'm going to draw a blank.

If I listened to it and enjoyed it, it would be a mistake to have avoided it for so long imo. I guess I just don't see the harm in listening to a 48 minute (or less if you bail) cultural touchstone.

I did look into a lot of rock classics several years ago. I even went through large portions of Rollingstone magazine's best 500 albums list. Plus lots of music documentaries and random exploration. I just don't connect with most 60's and 70's music, at least from the rock genre in general. There's still lots and lots I don't know about it, but why bother when you mostly find nothing to latch on to?
It's only recently that I've returned to the 60's and 70's. This time to go more in-depth with folk music and singer-songwriters.

A large percentage of the music I check out every year is from that very year, and the year before it. So yeah, I'm staying pretty current, and since time is a finite thing, that means less old music. I'm finding lots of good and great music, so I don't feel like I'm suffering from this approach

Basically... whatever works...

I see what you mean and don't think it's a bad argument, really, but here's my problem with it:

Depending on who you ask, there's literally thousands and thousands of cultural touchstone/must listen/unmissable/important/unique/innovative/challenging/interesting/genre defining albums to listen to, each ranging from 30 to 79 minutes in length. I've already got well over a hundred links/thumbnails and scribbled notes referring to albums I find I have a reason to check out. I simply have to make some editorial decisions and cut some stuff out, otherwise I'll have 100.000 hours of "must-listen" material on my plate.

It literally isn't humanly possible to give everything a fair shake.

I mean, even now, as I'm typing this, I'm in the middle of giving this album here a chance:

Add it to the list I guess? There really isn't any reason not to check it out tbh. I'm 100% certain that it is not what you're imaging it to be. It has a lot of folk and modern classical influences.

I think you'd like the Nico tracks.

Now that does a least somewhat more to reel me in than any other argument likely could. I'm curious by nature.
