Giving Music a Second Chance

Sometimes we’ll listen to something and immediately dislike it. It’s easy to say that it wasn’t for us and that we’ll never listen to it again.

But sometimes it’s a matter of time, not taste. We need to give yourself some space from that band or piece of music: listen to other things, experience other things, learn about other things.

Then, we’ll find ourselves returning to that band or piece of music with a perspective that we didn’t have before. That perspective invites the music in rather than denounces it.

And maybe you still won’t like it. At least you gave it a second chance.
