You know what I hate? Using the word "accessible" to describe music. It's so ludicrously pretentious and condescending that I cringe every time I see it.

"I have a deep understanding of music, but you (the proletariat) are incapable of comprehending any music that is above a certain complexity. Therefore, in my reviews of music that I like, I shall be careful to label everything as either 'accessible' or not, so that you (the ignorant, unwashed masses) know whether you ought to even attempt listening to it. Also, I am better than you."
