You know not sure what got me thinking about this, but the music community is bi-polar. Being a punk rock lover, I frequent punknews.org a lot, and that crowd there is either way high on something or way low on something. There's never a middle ground. And if they love something, they want the whole world to know it. And if they hate something, they want the whole world to know that?
Not sure why that is. Myself if I like a band, I'll tell someone maybe some people about them, and leave it at that. But I never go into the game of hyping something up because once you start building something up and it doesn't meet those expectations, you will think it just sucks.
Which brings up the other thought I had going, why is it when a song gets overplayed, people suddenly think oh that songs sucks. To me a song is good or not off the bat. Sure you can get sick of hearing a song, but does that mean you change your opinion about its quality. I don't understand that logic, which when it comes to musical taste, there's probably not logic.
Your feelings will change all the time, hence your listening habits will change. I am sure there are bands ten years, five years, and even a week ago that I thought I loved, but now am not in love with some much. And I know that will change in the next week. But it is music, and it's like I always saying if it brings an emotion, good or bad, that's doing something.
