    No worries. Yes, personal taste will certainly play a big part in how we judge the music. I suppose I often prefer fairly complex music, and to those who are not used to it, it might sound like rubbish. Don't get me wrong, I have heard some seriously pretentious pieces of complex music in my day (i.e. music that pretends to have a lot more substance than it does), and really loathed it. As for my examples above, though, I guess you'll simply have to take my word for it that they are not pretentious; they have real depth once you've gotten used to the complexity (though of course I don't have the last say on that).

    So, I can't really accept the "culture is dead" statement, at least not categorically, although I would agree that it has died or zombiefied in some areas.
