I'm just joking. I mean, about it being a problem, not about it sounding like Dir En Grey.

But on the wider internet, it definitely seems like people only accept a comparison if they don't hate the thing their favorite band is being compared to. But I hear all sorts of weird musical connections sometimes.

I think people tend to forget how musically open a lot of artists are. They can be influenced by and be appreciative of a lot of artists outside their genre or medium. Most artists don't sneer and deride other bands like internet pseudo critics do.

I'd say that I aspire to evolve into a musical attitude like that of Ted Gioia or Rick Beato. No negative attitudes about any genres. Just being able to hear any music for what it is and be able to see the craftsmanship and artfulness, regardless of personal preferences.

Absolutely! I grew out of the "I like everything except for rap and country" phase a long time ago and I believe I have become wiser for it. I think that even the worst pieces of music have something to offer.

Now that's the kind of attitude I wish more people had about music

I will gladly take a steaming dump on "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" and I don't care how much of an ******* I have to be.

I actually agree with this and I'm a Floyd fan at heart.

I'm definitely not there yet, in terms of being more fair to all music.

But despite all of my ranting, my dirty secret is that I actually find most of the stuff I say I don't like to be listenable. I just find it difficult to find music that I can outright actively care a lot about.

I'd say "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" is a very well written song and an alright listen if I'm trying to keep my feet on the ground. But mostly I'll just have my arms crossed, a frown on my face and say that it's really boring because it doesn't set my pants on fire.

or just click over to 4chan or most places on the internet

the extreme right is impressively shameless and vile

the left couldn't hope to be as brutal even if it wanted to be

I've also found that problem as well where my sense of "liking something" is more ingrained with whether I really like it or not. I want more albums that blow my socks off, not make me say "yeah this is pretty good" and never think about them again. Maybe my tastes are too specific or I'm still too narrow to appreciate the finer things.

Unfortunately I'd have to agree with the Batlord and Exo on the fact that Shine On is a waste of time, and Pink Floyd are my childhood sweethearts. It's such a detriment to WYWH with how meandering and boring it is (especially compared to far better PF epics on previous and later albums). It's just the one song by the band that I've found myself unable to enjoy.
