30-08-2005 23:30In High Fidelity I believe it to be accurately stated that adults may take extreme precautions to what children may view at the cinemas or on the internet. However they do not take the same care in the child' music tastes, yes the child may have slightly less volatile physical urges than other children but may listen to the most heart-breaking, sad and ultimately soul destroying music known to mankind.
