Which leads into another interesting question, to what extent do people
here think their music communicates or is intended to communicate? There
are many musicians who think music needs to have deep, complex meaning;

says. There's no right or wrong answer on this, of course, but I'm
interested in people's positions with respect to their own music.

one was that there was a story, a narrative flow, that one person really followed and was drawn along by.
the other was another person saying that there wasn't enough narrative thread.
