A term that can mean anything means nothing.

A better approach is to try defining great art.  And what is the
difference between merely good art and truly great art.

I suspect great art is objectively, vibrationally evident
regardless of a person's taste or point of view.  Mozart is
objectively great, as is Monet, Shakespeare, and Michelangelo.

To think otherwise, I suspect, is to not be open to the high
vibratory rate of those works.
