By fighting musical paralysis and getting out of the cage, we will be surprised to find that there is actually so much good music out there. Just like food, no matter how much we like the music that is to our taste, there will be a point when we feel bored with that music.

Love Your Ears, Listen to Music with Reasonable Sound Intensity
Listen to loud music with earphones or headsets are fun. It's as if the world around us has disappeared, there is only us and the music we listen to.

That's the reason I often leave Spotify lately and prefer to listen to a collection of physical releases or FLAC format music on my laptop.

Despite the regime change, Dialita's music may not be able to eradicate the stigma and eliminate the culture impunity. However, was not Dialita's original goal to target the younger generation?
