I'd say it's always easy listening to OP, and Riddle, and maybe Weston, Percy Faith, Martin Denny, and more, depending on one's choice in music. Who says hard listening is better? the best book on 20th century Classical music (The Rest Is Noise by Alex Ross) is brilliantly written, anecdotal in the extreme, and amazingly easy to understand. i vote for easy.
