I don't really get why this is so important. Thing is, we here (or most of us here, I'd wager) LOVE music. We take time and actually LISTEN to it. We discover new things, develop a deeper understanding and appreciation, and, naturally, we have certain standards that have developed over time.
(I said this before somewhere else, but I remember a study done in Germany in the early 90s that revealed the average number of times a CD gets listened to: 2 point something. Yes madam and sir, that's TWICE. How many times have you listened to Led Zeppelin II? Or the Richard D. James album? Or Mozart's Requiem? Can you imagine only listening to that shit twice? In your entire life?
It may be hard to contemplate or even *gasp* understand, but we are in the minority. To most people, music is at best a pleasant backdrop for their lives. This is neither here nor there, these folks merely have other priorities - it doesn't make them bad, or dumb, or both. To them, music is a utility, and it provides a certain function. Most EDM is functional music in this sense. It's not meant to survive the ages, it's not meant to provide intellectual stimulation, it's to get people dancing. And it obviously works for a lot of people. So what? A lot of classical music is pure fluff composed for aristocrat gatherings. Fluff has its place in the grand scheme of things as well as the weighty stuff.
