Every creative person is free to experiment in whatever way they feel like. Sometimes the experiments are failures in my eyes.
Some people love the Murray St. era of Sonic Youth music and absolutely detest Confusion is Sex, Bad Moon Rising, and Evol.
Others love the big loud bombast of DDN, Goo, Dirty but fucking hate Murray St., EJSTNS, and NYC Ghosts..., (and vice versa)
To each their own.
