Remember the Janis Joplin post? Janis Joplin was an artist, but IMO what she did as a singer was anything but art. IMO she sounded like a half dead *****, band wagon jumper.
The truth however is that MANY sets of ears every bit as good and qualified as mine don't feel that way. And you know what? They are every bit as correct in their personal assessments as I am. No one can be right in such matters. That's because art *is* subjective. Because it is subjective it can only exist in the mind of the beholder. Art is internal and so is the internal perception based "band wagon jumping" assessment.
I notice too much philiosophying in these remarks....and philosophy has little to do with music. The risk here is confusing people who would like to speak ABOUT MUSIC AS AN ART FORM
