taste in art is purely subjective

"We know that rating music -- listening to it + calling one album better than another album -- is a fool's errand. Taste in art is purely subjective. Just because my ears happen to like something more than your ears doesn't make that something better than something you say you like."
-Paul Shirley

I kind of fell in love with this quote, especially in the context of my own blog. I regularly share my thoughts on new music + shows I've attended. As much as I like to present myself as a someone of ultimate musical taste, I don't know shit. No one does. Because exactly as stated above, taste in art is purely subjective. I only hope, at the very least, that I can share a few things that I like + that maybe others might like it too.
