I was going to point that out but thought, no: a noob/spammer? Guess you don't have the same scruples I do.

For me personally, I only started really appreciating subtler, quieter music when I aged past 30. Before then, I was way more dependent on novel sounds and immediate gratification. It has only been in recent years that I've started seeing how simple and boring music like Joan Baez, Carly Simon, fado, celtic, etc. is not boring if you show some patience and let the nuances of the songwriting get under your skin.

It would definitely be fallacious to assume that one will necessarily gravitate towards more and more complex/weird/novel/intense things the older one gets. I personally took three decades to learn that music isn't only about immediate energy, hooks and interesting, unique sounds. Put simply, of course.

I'm probably being captain obvious again. It's just that I can see how one would think that a music obsessive should develop a taste for more and more esoteric pleasures over the years, but it can go the opposite direction too.

Personally, I'm feeling less interested in experimental and abrasive music than I used to.

A man who listens to the same music when he was 50 as he did when he was 20 spent 30 years listening to jazz.

A man who does not listen to jazz at either 20 or 50 has wasted 50 years of his life.
