What does "accessible" mean when relating to music?

I just read a question asking "this or that" for some 2 albums and literally every answer had the word accessible in it.

What does this even mean? Isn't all music out there accessible?

    Usually it means mainstream, music that many people can enjoy.

    The example given above is great.

    Black Metal is for a certain demographic while Lady Gaga is basically for every teenager out there.

    It means easy listening, generally enjoyable to most...

    For example hardcore improv jazz is not an accessible genre to most people...

    While things like Uh, like oldies, or somethin, are generally very accessible

    I think it means that you don't need an acquired taste for it.
