Ok, let's say I follow all the links posted on a mailing-list, and all I
find are tracks in which I want to fast-forward through the seemingly
randomly-arranged noises until I get to the beginning of the «real stuff»,
and eventually I can't fast-forward anymore because I'm already at the
end. What do you call this ? When is one allowed to generalise ?
(btw obviously I'm not talking about pd-list !)

Depends on the level on which you expect to define it. You'd have more
chances if you try to define it on a sociological/psychological level.

That's usually called beauty, ugliness and æsthetics, though otoh lyrics
could be subjected to the same judgements of morality as books do.
