If it's good I like it. Yesterday I enjoyed the Electric Ladder album  
by Robert Rich. He does everything in juste intonation. I also like  
very much to play any electronic sounds in a certain chinese fixed Lu  
scale from by Huai Nan Zi, Han era. I don't know the technical or  
mathematical specifications of that tuning but first time I heard it  
I recognized the same interval pitches I always go for by my own taste.
