OBJECTIVITY 


IS MUSIC CRITICISM ENTIRELY SUBJECTIVE ?

Even if music could be said to be subjective, could not the subjects then be proven to be disposed to particular tastes - either via external (stimulative or sedative) influences or internal (psychological) factors - and would those considerations not require some kind of approval (in the same way as other behavioural impulses) ?
