Not really, Billy Woods is my favourite hip hop artist now and I love Young.

I donno I can usually tell if im going to like something off one listen, no matter what kind of music it is. Even if its not something I feel like at that moment, theres usually something pulling me back (if I figure ill end up liking it).

I feel the same way a lot of the time, but certain albums just need a while to sink in.

If a lot of people I respect like a musician I don't like I try to figure out what's keeping me from enjoying it. It isn't usually dissonant, atonal, or noise music that I find difficult. Often it's pop music that has no appeal to me but obviously appeals to millions. In those cases, instead of being a curmudgeon I try to appreciate what it is these people like.

Sometimes music is like literature. It takes a some effort sometimes but if it's important to you it should be worth it.

I fund that growing up around someone who loves almost all music equally was important for me to be able to easily like artists like Can, Swans, DG, Whitehouse, and White Suns, as much as bands like Radiohead, Flaming Lips, and Wilco. Really to all my friends a lot of what I play gets shut out immediately.

I save challenging albums for personal listening and classics for hanging out with the crew. Typically I'll save an album that I know will be a lot to take in for long highway drives, headphoned train rides into the city, or morning walks. That way I know I won't be distracted by other things and I can fully soak it in.

I do the same in school I'll usually just throw on something poppies that I don't have to listen to as a whole.

Most forms of extreme music have a trickle down effect towards mainstream music where it becomes more palatable for mass consumption.

I find in most cases I'm already building myself up a tolerance level towards it without even being aware of it by listening to more mainstream derivatives of that music and slowly working my way back to it's source the more accustomed I become to it.

For me, everything started with the Beach Boys. Then I discovered the Beatles, and got into psych through some of their weirder material. Building up the tolerance is the trick. It's at the point now where while I don't regularly listen to any far out, Frownland-type stuff, I've gotten used to it so that the unfamiliarity alone doesn't turn me off.
