Could you elaborate here? What allows for a work of art to have greater or
less repeatability?

I have listened to some so called "pop forms" trip hop and hip hop to name
a few and found much complexity?

For me in music - there is usually foreground and background - the music
that allows me to return several or more times usually is rich in "middle
ground"...
