Listening to music is always an individual experience. Therefore, there is no general objectivity regarding "good" or "bad" music. What there is, however, are jointly developed evaluation criteria and assessments of listeners who, due to their experience with certain music, consider themselves to be specialists. However, even they cannot achieve a universally valid objectivity in their evaluation, because each one of us can only experience and judge individually whether a piece of music is convincing or not.
