even before you have heard it? how ignorant is that? i was just listening to some Jill Scott and i realised, certain progressive music critics out there would rather commit suicide than give this chick creidt because she is not in the box of their ideology? this shit is just like politics. sad.

Has nothing to do with my choices. I'm not gay, but I listen to Rufus Wainwright, Indigo Girls, Pet Shop Boys, Morrissey, et al. Not into drugs or alcohol, yet listen to all kinds of lyricists that are. It's about what resonates with the listener, be it lyrics, the sounds, BPM, or whatever.

All my life i wanted to be black.
Until i saw your picture, now i wanna be you.

I refuse to listen to Coldplay because my body does not like it when I vomit.

define "ideology"
"Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humour."

I don't listen to country music b/c I'm appalled by white trash.

My ideology excludes opera and ICP. Jill Scott = fine.

Given that I love Burzum records, I guess my answer would have to be "no"

That totally makes sense. Jill Scott is the Prussian Blue of Black people.

Boredom/philistinism prevents my listening to classical, most roots reggae, ambient. I don't seek out hip hop, but people keep hipping me to stuff, so it isn't politics or ideology. I used to think it was ideology that prevented my listening to certain artists, and then someone close to me observed that it was immaturity hiding behind ideology, so I stopped. Mostly.

most roots reggae, ambient sounds the same.

Classical certainly doesn't. Do you really think Gregorian chants sound like 20th century electronic music?

Did I say they sound the same?

Boredom and philistinism, which is a big long word which means I have no class, little to no education and lack the shame to disguise the fact, prevent me enjoying classical. Whether it all sounds the same is irrelevant - I find it all boring b/c most of it is much more complex than the music I enjoy. I DO like Phillip Glass and 20th Century classical music, at least the minimalists - see if you can guess why.

I find Blues pretty boring. And most Country which is really just white man's Blues.

If you like Glass and '20th Century classical music' then you do like various kinds of CM. Ragtime is classical too btw.

I tell ya what - you take exception to the other posters who've mentioned not liking classical and then we'll talk.

I never said all classical sounded the same. You accused me of saying it because, apparently, you don't read well. Or read what you wish to see rather than what is printed.

I like minimalist composers BECAUSE THEY'RE MINIMAL. Most classical music is much more complex and involved than the music I prefer, so it bores me and I don't bother.

I'm glad you're delighted with your own cleverness at getting me to take the bait - THAT takes a lot of skill, huh?

I like 20th Century classical music composers - at least those whose work is minimalist and simple - because most of the music I like is minimal and simplistic. I think most popular music fans and casual music fans would never place Phil Glass and Steve Reich in the same category as Mozart and Brahms and Handel and Haydn and Vivaldi.

They may well be technically wrong, but I'ma guess you're clever enough, despite your literacy issues, to make a mental distinction between people who "hate Classical" and people who have the Powaqqatsi soundtrack.

my not being religious keeps me from listening to Amy Grant and Stephen Curtis Chapman.
