On a serious note.

Music is either good or bad , the rest is something to discuss till you die.

Although , I'd narrow the discussion by stating that music without lyrics is crap.

You best count and make sure.
That one-less prog lp may make all the difference when you're up for the Final Judgement.

About half of my listening is to instrumental albums - mainly Jazz and EM. A lot of the time I find voices/lyrics to be too distracting.
