Music is sometimes just that; but good music is a great deal more than that.

That's why it has the potential to move us deeply, because it has a much more complicated structure than the taste of chocolate or strawberry (which we merely like or don't like) and engages both our conscious and unconscious selves.

The use of vibrato, which at its best highlights some notes and not others, contributes to that sort of structure, often in ways that aren't consciously predictable to the performer or listener.

People differ in such judgements, but that doesn't mean it's *equally* subjective. Someone who uses vibrato musically intelligently gets the musical listener beyond wanting to say things like, I like vibrato or I don't like vibrato, in the same way as they might say, I like chocolate or I don't like chocolate.

But on rereading your original post I see that you left room for that, that even if you didn't say it just now; so I'm sorry if you felt I jumped down your throat.
