burzum is relative to people who value spirit in music.

To what extent is art spirit/feeling?
See this thread:  http://bbs.anus.com/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=2&t=001883

and a specific spirit at that.

That the spirit is specific is irrelavant--it's still spirit.  I wasn't talking about specifics.

Quote
the relativism/universalism dichotomy is a distraction as it it far from absolute.

What is a dichotomy?
Did I really present one?
No.  In fact, the discussion of relativism and universality presupposes the lack of such a dichotomy; my entire conceptual argument is dependent upon the non-existence of said dichotomy.
Move past the barriers of language.

It is your subjective opinion, your way perception. Some other person will not "find" those feelings in his music

One does not ask a blind man his opinion on a painting.
Those who disagree with me are deaf.  There is no "subjectivity" (in the sense you use the term), but a relative (look up the difference between "subjective" and "relative") difference in perception and understanding.
That an idiot lacks comprehension does not mean a genius is wrong--even when it comes to subjective things.
And art IS subjective, but that just means it is interpreted through the subject, rather than "objectively."  Who could imagine sterile, objective art?
This in no way precludes universality, however.

I think it helps to give things some context, to see what are the heights that metal bands reached, so people know how good it can be

Best:
Burzum, First Emperor Full Length, Rainbow Rising, Death

Better:
Morbid Angel (Abominations up to and including Covenant)
Immortal
Judas Priest
Dio
Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force
Good:
Incantation
Darkthrone

Think thats about it. The reason I put Burzum in the better quality instead of best mainly because I don't think its a very good representation of Metal as whole and mainly I'm not realy into burzum that much anymore. I think too many people get on the varg bandwagon here.
