"Inevitably, though - on every message board that has these threads - there is at least one person who likes to make the exercise more about him than the music, because that's just the type of person he is. The way in which he does that is by listing albums that are not generally understood to belong to the genre in question. He's hoping that at least someone takes the bait and questions the inclusions, but will be satisfied merely by leaving an impression of being more studied and erudite than the rest of the crowd, because he was able to find a connection between things that aren't normally considered connected."
Haha you've sure got me pegged. If there's still a quotebook, this belongs there.
