What are you starting to dislike more as you get older?

Classic is fine. I have a fondness for Mahler, Stravinsky, and Holst. My decade of choice however was the mid 60s through mid-70s. There was so much great music back then that I was starved of in the creative dead zone of the late 90s to early 00s. I found genres like prog rock, bossa nova, funk, early metal/hard rock, ska, electronica, and so on. I particularly resonated with the creative output of Frank Zappa, Yes, Chicago, Black Sabbath, Phish, Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues.

I'm not just looking backwards mind. One of my favourite albums is only from the last 4 years or so, and by a French space metal band Slift. Of the rare cases of music that I grew up with as it grew alongside me was the likes of Porcupine Tree and Devin Townsend, but they weren't as prominent in the charts to where I had anyone to discuss that music with until I was done with school. It is what it is, but what I was getting at with my original comment is that the challenge of discovery is better than it's ever been, despite the deluge of crap that the music industry is using it's last gasp to shove out onto it's manufactured charts.
