Jeez, the way we spend money and use tweaks--you gotta come up with another reason we need shrinks??? If your mind is wandering,put a gps device on it so you don't loose it altogether.

Sure I've noticed a difference. If I can't relax and open up, I can't enjoy the music. Sometimes the music will relax me, but only if I'm ready for it. Sometimes I have to stop a listening session and go for a walk, or do my tax return, before I can get into music again. Since every day is different, there are days I don't do any listening at all. OTOH there are times the music sounds just sublime, and I really appreciate all the resolution and finesse it can reproduce.
My toaster is the same way. Sometimes the toast is great and I know it but I couldn't care less.
Guess I have to agree with Tobias. If I'm really upset or agitated about something, I can't relax and listen. When things are OK...I do find I enjoy music earlier in the day rather than later - when my energy level is up. Unfortunately, due to work schedule etc most of my listening is later in the evening.
