thats not even true. the reason newgrounds audio portal sucks is because of ignorant fucks like you who make blanket statements to make themselves feel like theyre actually accomplished in making music. not to single you out, but dont say stupid shit like that. few people on the audio portal actually know what theyre talking about, they just pull shit out of their ass to sound smart.

musical taste is somehow dependent on a persons IQ.Haha, I'd love to see the scale for that.
IQ . . . . . . Genre

IQ has nothing to do with it. How much you think you know about music is the problem.
If your average rap listener hears a good, emotionally stimulating trance track, he'll go wow
if your average trance listener listens to an emotionally stimulating rap track, they will also go wow.
BUt, take your avergae rap producer and show him the same trance track hell go "not another techno song"
take your average trance producer show him the great rap track hell go "wtf mate, not more c-RAP"
musicians don't enjoy music nearly as much as music listeners who dont produce. I myself try to be an exception.
get your fucking ego out of music listening. I see so many people posting "OMG GENARIC TRANCE TRACK", then produce a rap track and the trance producer goes "GENARIC C-rap"
It has nothing to do with music as an art form it has to do with peoples egos and the "my genre is the best genre" mentality
This is starting to wane in current times, I hear many people saying "i listen to all music (except country) as lo0ng as its good" which is how it should be
you should listen to music you enjoy because you enjoy it. if you are a musician though, you should also listen to music you enjoy, even if it is generic trance and you are a rap producer, or one ofn those smug "mainstream lolz" wannabe pros who creates crappy non-generic trance and dance music that sucks balls
then again if anyone here listens to country, seriously go fuck yourself, crawl in a hole and die
