hahaha. i know.
the thing about this topic is that the reason you may listen to something "outside your comfort zone" is probably because it has something to do with the music you already listen to. It's why I like bebop and post-bop jazz, it reminds me off all the concentrated noise I like in post-hardcore. I like symphonic music that sounds epic and it relates to my love of post-rock. it's why genres kind of suck as a thing - it's really just a different take on something you already love.
this also may be the reason why scene kids love dubstep. waiting for the drop and waiting for the breakdown are just about the same thing - and both are dumb.
