You are completely right. I used to be one, and I was the most close-minded jackass I've ever known (when it comes to music).

The self-titled album has more of a heavy metal circus music angle. And California is kind of a skewed take on pop (sort of along the lines of Pet Sounds but much, much weirder).
Yea, I'm listening to California right now. I can definitely hear a poppish feel to it.

My dad was like that. He reduced all elements of musicality down to the quality of a guitar solo.

My brother can't stand my taste in music, he likes electronic stuff (which I just don't get), he said my folk-punk sounds like aggressive talking, which was amusing and the screamo I enjoy he describes as "pathetic crying", he does like some of my folk though, so that's ok. My parents actually like my taste in music, I'm just careful about what I show them.

As for my friends, I had one high school friend who shared my taste in music and I did a lot of swaps with her, and in college I tend to be the one giving music out to other friends because they are interested in my taste, I actually get a lot of praises about my taste actually...

The only album my parents owned that wasn`t classical music was this one :



Unluckily for them, at my insistence, they were forced to sit through hours of Bob Dylan, but then suddenly one afternoon my Dad asked me about the lyrics of I Pity The Poor Immigrant. It was like he was saying, "This young American upstart with the horrible voice is actually singing something quite interesting."

It was an exceptional father/son moment that I`ll never forget.

My mom hates pretty much any of the free jazz, funk, improvisational, or jam music I listen to - she says it just sounds like they're showing off and don't even care about making "real music".

My sister thinks you have to be on drugs to listen to free form jazz.

My youngest sister (12) loves a handful of Phish songs and some of the hip-hop I listen to. She doesn't understand why I don't love Owl City and Ke$ha, though.

Most of my friends don't like to share music with me as much - they just ask me to burn them CDs of new music and never bring up anything they listen to because they assume I've already heard of it. Which is probably untrue at this point, as I've not had a chance to really listen to anything new for a few months.

Mmmm. I think my parents understand what I like about music, they just don't like sad, heavy music. I do though. I'm not really into happy music most of the time.
I guess my parents don't understand most of my music, they don't dislike it per se.

And my friends, most of my friends share at least 50% of my taste.
My ex-girlfriend shared at least 80%. Which is very, very practical .

I had one friend get extremely angry with me when I didn't like Brand New's Daisy. That's pretty much it. They don't really care about my music other than that.

What one person said about Dylan's singing was not that it's good, but that it's very convincing and sounds truthful. Can't remember where I heard that, but I have to say that I agree with him or her.

My dad is pretty open. He has tried as long as I can remember to get me to listen to Bob Dylan, The (Early) Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, and the Beatles (he still does, except for the beatles). Knows a lot about rock music before the 90's but still likes maybe 70-80% of what's on the mix CD'S I play in the car.

My mom is pretty unknown to me. I know she at least likes Exit Music (For a Film) by Radiohead and You are Never Alone by Socalled. Might have grown a distaste of Muse.

For my friends it's pretty varied. Nothing really bad about it at all, not that I care what they like in music*.

*total lie

That was the same thing my dad said last year after I showed him the Teignmouth concert recording.

But then I just played KoC again later and he started to get into them. Weird.

Family:

Yeah, my dad is really open.
He LOVES Morrissey's Album "Years of Refusal." I left it in the car one day and he has favourite songs and everything. He and I used to listen to the Dave Matthews Band sometimes. He and I loved Creed when I was really young. He also took me to most of the concerts I've been to, and he loved them.
My mom hates my taste in hip hop but loves my taste in R&B. She would never come to a concert with me, but the Evanescence CD that we had around the house belonged to her, as did the Beyonce CD.
My sister and I have the same taste in pop for the most part (since my taste in pop is that of a 15 year old anyway) but she also likes some of the R&B and such that I listen to. She discovered The Script way before I did, and I really like their music now. My mom took us to a concert of theirs once, we woke up at 3am to go, it was free and in the city.
My whole family and I used to love some of the same artists/groups/bands. Evanescence, Outkast, Beyonce, etc.
