    Even if you couldn't tolerate it, I'm glad you did try to watch it.
    Well it is indeed different but just not my cup of tea.

    Watched it again . The brain was much more accepting of it. Definitely enjoyed it for freshness, modernity, fact that I could understand some of the words , and overall fun take.

    Sometimes, that's what it takes. The first time I heard Anne Bisson's Blue Note, I did not like it, but the more I listened, the better I did.

    I've heard some records Gary puts on and go "What the...?" But upon 2nd and 3rd listen, the brain accepts it better and then I start finding the magic in it.

    Really never thought of it before.

    This performance is amazing, and deserves sharing - Gyorgy Ligeti's Mysteries of the Macabre sung by Barbara Hannigan; London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.

    Well, I for one enjoyed this although I can't say I enjoyed the music as much as I enjoyed the theatrics. Opera's answer to rap, perhaps? In any event, I love to be introduced to weird music stuff, or just about anything Gary thinks is interesting.
