This is my opinion only. I'm not trying to change minds.
Funny you mention this. In the 70's I did not like The Rolling Stones and Credence Clearwater Revival, Young Rascles, etc. Recently I have discovered that I really like their music. And I'm sure it's because that most of the music today sounds very sterile. And so I'm beginning to the appreciate some of the old "sloppily played" rock and roll.
