Great post Ande. Always nice to have a point of reference to go back to, even when experience tells us we don't need it. One thing that always stands out to me is the need to listen - a lot.
"Why isn't my song better than it is?" "What makes that one work so well?"

There will always be dissenters around structure and method, etc., and certainly exceptions to everything.

Anyway - well done.
