I think it's just phases, and we may tend to look at some bands or musicians as less mature because we associate them with our own youth.
this. some of the earliest music I listened to by myself (that is, not my parents' music) I can't stand anymore, i.e. John Mayer. Then there are bands like The Gorillaz, which I just recently came back to but stopped listening to for a long period of time. But I would say my first phase of music listening, that is, the first music I started listening to when I really go into music, was classic rock. At the time I was convinced the only good music out there was made before the 80s (my idea of the 80s being solely hair bands, my idea of the 90s being bad pop... oh my twelve year old self), and the 60s/70s folk, rock, and soul/R&B was the place to go for really good music (Except for rap; I was convinced that the only good rap was 00s underground stuff, and some old school albums like Illmatic and The Score). Now, mind you this is before I realized that there is a great deal of good music being made nowadays, it's just not what the majority of people would call "popular music." But yeah, I really got into bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jefferson Airplane, etc., and I mean really go into them. I actually look fondly back at this, because I rarely get into bands this much nowadays. I mean, I've listened to Pink Floyd's Animals so goddamn much; I would just walk back and forth in my room and jam out to that shit (and I'm an album guy, so Pink Floyd really meshed with me). Same with Led Zeppelin, I ate up their entire discography. But yeah, I don't really listen to them that much anymore. Don't get me wrong, it's not like John Mayer where just the sound of him makes me cringe, I still think the music is great. But I just don't listen to it much. I think part of the reason is that I'm listening to so much more new stuff nowadays: current bands, but I'm also finally getting into 80s/90s underground, 80s punk, etc., that I haven't really put aside time for my old flings. But yeah, not much else to say on the matter.
