Black Sabbath vs. Chopin

Michael Blowhard raised one of his usual ruckeses recently by posing the following hypothetical: one guy goes to a Black Sabbath concert; another goes to hear Maurizio Pollini play Chopin (which, I might add, Pollini has been known to do quite well--I've got the CDs to prove it). Afterwards, both say they had a "great" time. Michael then asks a number of questions for discussion; all focus on whether the two guys can reasonably mean the same thing by "great".

Michael architects his posts to generate open-ended discussion; consequently, I was amused to see Aaron Haspel bat out a set of clear, concise, definitive answers.

Go read Michael's hypothetical, and then read Aaron's answers.
