YMMV: Johann Sebastian Bach
- Awesome Music: Too many examples to list!
- Critical Dissonance: Bach scholars tend to rate the cantatas and Passions as his greatest work; non-scholars and fans often prefer the instrumental music, such as the Goldberg Variations, The Well-Tempered Clavier, the suites for solo violin and solo cello, etc. This probably has something to do with the fact that the sacred vocal works are all sung in German.
- Vindicated by History: Bach's music wasn't given the recognition it deserved until the 1800s.
