Sounds Good

What does it mean when something sounds good?

Either the quality of sound is good or the music itself, the ideas being expressed, are good.

These goods aren’t mutually exclusive, sure. The quality of sound could lead to the musical ideas being expressed clearer or the musical ideas presented could make the quality of sound shine.

And yet all I can think of is that saying: when you polish a turd you still end up with a turd.
