I think when you are young you are into music either for the emotional-identificatory element (the youngest) or the rush (the eldest). That's a bit of a over-broad generalisation, but my own listening opened up a lot when I was no longer looking to staunch my emotional voids, as it were. Probably when I was younger I wouldn't have had much time for the avant-stuff, or African music or whatever - I'd be looking for the emo connection or the instant-rush, whether it was Stooges or the Prodigy.
