    I'm saying it is virtually impossible to philosophically justify (to a satisfactory degree) why, for instance, Radiohead is better than Justin Bieber. Or why [insert X musician] is better than [insert X musician.]

    I don't think it's impossible to rank musicians in order of least to most aesthetically pleasing, but my list will be different from most others, most probably.

    you are if you're going to criticize me. I welcome criticism it is constructive, that's why I asked further. if you are not going criticize me, I expect an explanation and beneficial information. if not, I don't appreciate criticism or condescension

    It's funny that you want to distance yourself from hipsters (many of whom are as elitist about their taste in art and music as your own). It's kind of hilarious, actually.

    There's nothing wrong with high quality and I admit from an aesthetic point of view that some music is obviously more complex than others.

    On the other hand, art makes people feel, they resonate with it, and people express themselves. As long as a person is genuinely doing that you can't objectively say that it isn't art.

    no it isn't. that's like saying it's philosophically impossible to justify wanting to have a bigger house, nicer clothes, better food or a more comfortable bed. the answer is simple, it's more pleasurable

    I don't feel compelled to provide an explanation for something that's so obvious. I was hoping you'd admit that you're prejudiced and elitist, that is all.

    It's just funny that you consider yourself so cultured, high class, and elite and you didn't understand what he said in that post.

    Maybe history isn't your strong point? I dunno.
