Default Re: Can younger people appreciate music better than people of an advanced age?

As I get older (34 now) my musical tastes have only opened up and broadened more.

I think dismissing older people as passing off new music isn't a good thing. Some people get more rigid in their views and more vocal about their opinions as they get older, true, but as far as "appreciation" goes, I find that older people who have matured in a healthy way are much more appreciative and open to new music.

When you talk about distorted guitars, semi-aggressive/upbeat themes, and odd time signatures as "quality" music, and modern pop songs as "crap", you seem to be less appreciative of new music than most 40+ people I know...
