          1. I do agree that many gifted musicians offer moments of disappointments, but as a whole, picture ‘all along the watchtower’ being played in the forest.

            The birds would flee for cover. My point is some things are rebellious to the ear. If I may make a comparison: atheism is such noise to my ears in the pristine surroundings of the woods.

            You think otherwise, but eh, to each his own.

            1. There is an art to learning to listen or appreciating music, which some have an affinity for while others don’t.
              I am fortunate to be able to appreciate the subtleties in a Tony Williams drum solo, the pitch perfect voice of Sinatra, and the technical brilliance of a guitarist such as John Williams.
              Why Astor Piazolla is often considered one of the greatest tango composers ever to have lived, and why some of Abba’s music is considered to be the best pop music ever recorded.

              If I may make a comparison: Christianity is like listening to a 60s cover band all day long, and the musicians are all amateur and their instruments are out of tune.
              yes, that s most definitely a noise.

              1. And if I may go one step further.

                While we all have our preferences as to tone or timbre, ultimately, there is One grand Maestro who gives such ears, who gives such talent, and who gives minds to appreciate such orchestration seen in the entire universe.

                Too bad you cannot hear the soft violin of the Milky Way, or the demure piano of a sunsetting.

                God’s music is far better than the rusted steel guitars which all end up in a trash heap.

                As to Christianity, it is darn near perfect if it were not for imperfect people.

                  I think they are being drowned out by the incessant caterwauling of 40,000 plus Christian sects all yelling how they represent the Canaanite deity, Yahweh.

                2. Ah but you confusing God who is perfect………with some musicians who are out of tune!

                  Don’t be so quick to chastise the Conductor because some in the orchestra are dumb, dumb, or blind.

                  But you should concern yourself NOT with Christians who may not appear ‘good’ to your ear……….but to the One who made your ears.

                3. Don’t be so quick to chastise the Conductor because some in the orchestra are dumb, dumb, or blind.

                  As I am unable to communicate with the conductor, contrary to the many varied claims of the dumb and blind members of the orchestra, it surprises me that these rank amateurs, who cannot string together a single coherent tune still insist on coming here to lecture me on the finer points of their god’s music.
                  Maybe they would do better staying at home, learn the music, and then learn how to play it on their chosen instrument rather than foisting their very mediocre talents on the listening public, while having the audacity to claim they are proclaiming their god’s word through song, when in fact, it comes across as an incoherent cacophony.

                4. ‘And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.’

                  Ah yes. such a sweet accord. Such balm to the soul. Such pleasantries to the ear.

                  I do agree ark. Scripture is far better than my incoherence.

                  So yeah, compared to this account, Hendrix is but noise.

                  Excellent. We agree on something at last. Then rather stay at home and not venture out with your Worse than Vaudeville Warbling until the Conductor gives you the nod that you have mastered the score and are ready to play?
                  And while you are at it, pass this message on to the rest of the ”players” in the pit.
                  It will be a genuine case of Silence is Golden.

                6. I might well admit to anything if you and the rest of the bit-players in the orchestra pit would withdraw from the stage, taking your organs and fiddles and g-strings with you, to finally allow the Conductor to get on with leading the choir invisible in silent song.
                  Would you and your very un musical gang be in the least obliging in this area, do you think?
