i guess i'm not actually a music snob then. i hate reading reviews and never listen to what critics say. or i never listen to their opinions on the actual album, if i do read reviews, it's because i'm looking to get an idea of what an album might sound like. for instnace a solo album put out by a singer in a band that i like. i want to see how similar/different it is, but i'm much more likely to try to hear some of it for myself rather than basing my decision whether to buy the album on what some msuic critics say.

and if you go to see a farily obscure band only because you want to see the even less-known opening band, you're a music geek.

Elvis Presley, you are indeed "the King".

Your new signature kicks ace too.



When it flat out comes down to it, music is TOTALLY based on personal preference. I listen to things like John Mayer and dont like it at all, but some of my best friends who like a massive amount of the same bands I do think that he's the shiznit. You cant ever truthfully make someone like another band, or try to prove that something is better musically than something else. It just comes down to whether or not you like it.

That being said, I still "poo poo" on a wide variety of "musical" groups/artists. It's hard to not shun things when they are so off putting to your own ears.

I was committing many acts of snobbery towards inferior musical acts in a Strawberry Soda Supernova in the Sky.
