I am able to sometimes rate artist ďobjectivelyĒ or by a standard separate to myself but really in the end that just the case of me doing thought experiments and playing devilís advocate rather than thinking there is any validity to it.
In any case there seems to be an impression that I donít like black artist because I donít really listen to them and although there are truth that i listen to them far less often to white artist. That doesnít necessarily mean iím completely ignorant of it. I mean I listen to every 50ís and 60ís record in the 1001 book and there are significant amount of black jazz, soul, blues artist there as well. I just disliked all of them. I heard my fair share of Stevie wonder, prince and sly and the family stone album as well.
If you explore key main albums from a specific genre. Youíll dig deeper if you like the canonically great albums of any particular genre of music, however iím far less likely to dig deeper if I listen to widely agreed upon masterpiece of a particular genre and didnít like it
