A very subjective subject but...
At the end of the day, CRU's are just not musical.
Can someone explain to me why the vast majority of Surprise Major ringers 
and composers think that rows like XXXX4578 are musical?
I've been thinking about this for a while and I might actually take pen to 
paper and write an article about musical rows.
There are main types of musical row
The Round type - (4 runs and above)
Queens type - ( Melodic and harmonic changes )
and the Tittums type - (coursing music)
There are also rows which do not fall into any of those catagories well - 
e.g 6578.

Any thoughts I'll be pleased to hear them and I'll get going on writing this
