Should Beer be Considered More Compelling and Interesting with Increased Strength and Complexity?

I’d like to challenge this apparent axiom in the beer community that with increased complexity and strength a beer is more interesting and compelling (SEE http://beeradvocate.com/top_beers, http://www.ratebeer.com/Ratings/Ratin... ). We surely don't apply this same paradigm to music for example. To me what should only make a beer compelling and interesting to each of us is if its particular character “works”.
