OT: Music School/Theory

So, a corollary of a question.

If knowing too much about music theory isn't a detriment to one's
playing (seems to be the consensus that it shouldn't be), is it
possible that too much theory, etc., is a detriment to your listening?

Has anyone here found themselves unable to enjoy music they could have
once upon a time before they knew about the structures of music?  Or
that they enjoyed things less once they understood the workings (or
lack of workings depending on the music)?

Just a random question to send you off to the weekend.


Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.

- Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950)
