So often on this website arguments about the relative merits of a band end with some one posting something along the lines â€˜Itâ€™s just an opinion and Iâ€™m entitled to one as much as anyone elseâ€™, leaving aside the gaping chasm that is the objective/subjective debate and how boring such a statement is, do you think there exists a category of artist who itâ€™s simply invalid to have a negative opinion on?
In other words are there artists that if someone canâ€™t appreciate then they clearly donâ€™t like music? You donâ€™t necessarily have to like such artists, but it should become apparent upon listening to them that they ooze so much originality, creativeness, beauty, emotion and incisiveness that to criticise them is a flawed exercise? And if such artists exist what are your nominations? Being conservative Iâ€™d only nominate Bob Dylan, Miles Davis and John Fahey to begin with.
