What is music to some, may be noise to many. Try to take someone who is a classical-only music lover to a metals concert. You would know what I mean.
‘Many’ is horizontal, wide, hits; ’some’ is vertical, narrow, niche.
The question is not who is ‘right’ who is ‘wrong’, the question is where do YOU belong. Not all wise-men of the day necessarily mastered both horizontals and verticals, breadths and depths, hits and niches, but they most certainly know that the OTHER THING exists and it exists for a reason.
