Maybe cynical and angry towards "popular" music. I see "pop" music as a machine; science-like. You get the formula, hit ENTER, and out comes a tune. It was perfectly executed, but has no pulse. ... Doesn't mean it can not be enjoyed, its just passive, momentary; the deep appreciation isn't there. Obviously this article was written by someone who considers thyself an artist in the deepest respect. ... But I'm with you, I need no reason to enjoy any song, or any piece of creativity whatever it may be.
