This is pretty much how I see it. It always rubs me the wrong way when I see someone degrading other people's tastes when they don't like something, even if a lot of people do. It could be a masterpiece for sure, but it's all on how people's preferences play out. I've heard a philosophy before that if someone is able to relate very heavily with a certain piece of art they're more likely to like it less.
