"De gustibus..." and all that.
I like a lot of what I hear from this list. I don't always find time to
make comments, and when I do I prefer to encourage. What I don't like I
don't feel compelled to publicly diss, though of course "to each his
own". After 60 years on this planet I've determined that - for my part,
at least - a little civility goes a long way. That said, the Internet is
not my sitting room, and if someone wants to harsh someone else's
efforts, well, that's how it is here. It's an open place.

Since I'm in quotation mode: "The critic is good when he praises, bad
when he blames", or so said Ezra Pound. As a teacher I find that the
only useful criticism is constructive criticism. However, "constructive"
can be modulated per student, and some of them can take considerably
warmer critique than others, but if I intend any of them to improve then
I have to consider their individual sensitivities.
Atte, I hope you'll continue to post your fine works here. Personally,
I'm done with "pop" and "classical" and "serious" and all the rest of
the labels that do nothing to advance my understanding of what it is I'm
hearing. I have no idea what to call your music, but I can tell you that
it moves me and I like it. Every work has a spirit, and I get a lot more
enjoyment when I get into the spirit of the thing (as opposed to
harshing it for not being what I want it to be).
re: Giorgio's original post : IMO, the only thing that sucks about the
video is that it was made on a Mac. ;)
