My opinion says:
I think it's best not to dissect the magic.

I don't know what to look for - but I know when it's there.

Really it just has to be interesting to me in a way that I want to listen to it again. Whenever I think I found some sort of common ground in the music I listen to something comes flying out of left field that begs to be listened to and changes all of that.

The mystery of the universe, if we had the answer to that we could answer so many other questions regarding why ... ?

Empty spaces. Whether it's pop, rock, classical, or jazz...there ought to be moments where the listener can clearly discern the attack and decay of different sounds. There's nothing worse than drummers and bass players who fill up every possible nook and cranny unless they know how to keep it very random where no 4 bars are ever identical.

Good lyrics are next. Even if it's about cars, girls, drinking, or generally being ticked off with parents or teachers, there should be some unique details. This is why most country music after the 1980's is impossible for me to listen to. I call them "seven eleven songs" because the same 7 words are repeated at least 11 times.

I don't mind music evolving. I just don't want it stifling my lo fi and garage rock....I wouldn't want to wake up to a day when everything sounded like progressive rock OR ? Mark & the Mysterians. But, if I HAD to make a choice, let me hear about those 96 tears again....

Atmosphere so thick I can practically taste it. The more rotten the taste, the better the music.

S I guess if you chewed on a rotten piece of fish at a Justin Beaver concert, you'd love his music? Interesting. ;~}
