[quote]Wrong[/quote] Wrong. The question was about defining quality. Listing comparisons is not a definition. Really, I don't see a point in continuing with this. The posters who think they have objective perception of the world just ignore, cherry-pick, and confuse a subjective viewpoint with...

[quote]CocoLoco[/quote] I just want to add that although I have pushed back against this idea of "poor taste" and objective comments about it, I do personally agree with much of what you're saying about mainstream music.
