Many people feel repulsed by what they perceive as pseudoreligious in Wagner's late music, but there are also many who feel attracted to it and form congregations of followers. I am split in my opinion, with both admiration for this sensual and spiritual music (just listen to the passages 0:56-1:27 and 3:07-3:45 from the Parsifal prelude to understand what I mean), and a certain urge to clear my mind after having listened to Wagner - e.g. by listening to Bach or Mozart.
