Hmm... you’re forgetting about the fact that up until the turn of the century access to music was scarce. Before mp3 downloads and streaming, if you were not willing to pay for CDs or records, you were mostly stuck with radio or (!) MTV. Maybe a friend could hook you up with a cassette tape or burned CD, but generally speaking SOMEONE had to buy an album before ANYONE could listen to it.
My point is that being young (assuming that’s what you consider yourself) is arguably an advantage, because you’ve had more opportunity to check out more music than another person who was exactly your age 25 years ago. Streaming allows you to dab into music genres that in the past you may have considered to be off limits.
That’s kind of what I’ve been telling myself as I compile my top 50. I’d bet that 6 months from now I would churn out a different list.
Yeah I think we all would, and that kinda ok, taste is evolutionary and always has a degeee of flux.
