A lot of Stravinsky's quotes I find distasteful, but he also famously said: "Music is given to us with the sole purpose of establishing an order in things, including, and particularly, the coordination between man and time", which might seem obvious but was a revelation for me in my understanding of music.

I agree with you. Stravinsky is way off base there.

To be fair, he predicted Opeth.

Opeth is just disorganized. There is no attempt to establish a narrative.

The person behind the art often fails to match the accomplishments of the art itself; this is nothing new.

Spend more time studying the art and less time studying the man behind it; men change over time, but the art forever represents the man as he should be remembered: at his ideal.
