An acquired taste

Sometimes I hear someone say “this music is a bit of an acquired taste”. What do they mean?

They feel they should like it, but don’t.

They want to like it, but can’t.

It’s taking more effort than casual hearing, to listen and appreciate.

I reckon sometimes it’s an attempt at semi-politely saying they don’t like it!
