Listening to music is an off- and on experience for me, and for a long time it's been more off than on, but I'll always have time for the early works of Brian Eno, like the 2999 AD popism of Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy, and while you listen to it you can read about the Chinese revolutionary opera which originally inspired Eno to make the record. Eno later remarked that:"...he had no interest in seeing the opera, but its title (which he felt sounded at once medieval and modern, romantic and practical) fascinated him...."

medieval and modern, romantic and practical...

Sounds like the spirit of our present times, right there.
