Yes, it's easy to fall into the subjective trap, but I avoid thatIt's all about personal taste really, I do like a bit of Supertramp but have never been a fan of American soft rock like Bon Jovi or Springsteen. Springsteen to me just sounds like a (slightly musical) Sylvester Stallone.
Don Costa , Nikka Costa's great late daddy, considered the greatest arranger ever, once said "the difference between a good song and a mediocre one is in the arrangements". He was right of course3 above all:
Why? Because they are not rock, they are not pop, they are not psychedelia, they are not soul......in other words, they are not music basically. Why ? It's all in the extremely dire arrangements and melody/harmony lines ....nothing personal
Of course, I like Enter Sandman, but NEM is a drag really. I prefer Megadeth, Metallica's eternal opponentsThe only exception to your list, "changeling", is METALLICA.
I think "Enter Sandman" & "Nothing Else Matters" are exremely good songs.
The rest? As you say :- useless!
Yes , think I've said it before, music IS subjective, but at some point and technically speaking, a sort of shitlist has to necessarily be drawn up.It's all subjective really, not a big fan of Metallica, too thrashy but Marillion's misplaced childhood is one of my alltime favorite albums.
