Yeah, it looks that way. I'm into old stuff as well, I'm a huge Gentle Giant fan, as well as the standards (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd). But, I was way into punk for a long time, and I've really just drifted away from everything I used to listen to, with the exception of The Misfits and The Cure.

But, in my opinion, music is far more subjective than film, even.

I also listen to some lesser known artists like Can and Fela Kuti.
I'll listen to anything except New Country and Rap.

I disagree. I think there are more elements to film than there is to music. I believe the greatness of music can be determined by instrumental performances (vocals included), rhythms and other shit like audio quality etc. Stuff like melodies and angst/joy/sadness expressed in the music are subjective in my mind. I believe there's a difference between a favourite band and a greatest band ever. I'd say that Rush is a greater band than let's say; The Police simply because of the complex rhythms and instrumental performances in Rush's music. The Police's music appeals to me more though than Rush, so The Police is my favourite of the two.

IMO.

Good points. Well said. I agree about the best/favorite thing, just like movies. My favorite film of all time is obviously the best to me, but others will obviously disagree.
