I’m not as big of a fan of music as some people; I don’t collect songs or albums, and I certainly don’t obsess about the difference between digital and analog. But I do appreciate certain types of music, especially those that effectively convey emotion or set a scene. That’s something you don’t find too often in most pop music, beyond the conventional garbage bouncing around in the heads of teenagers or adults who still act like them.
Did that read as smug? Yeah, probably. But it helps explain why, in part, I’m not someone who follows music. (The other reason is that I’ve only got so much room for crap to bounce around in my own head.)
