Repeats with changes are fine. Note for note repeats depend on the music being repeated. Just like a chorus in pop music, if it is awesome, I have no problem listening to it again. Other times, I just want them to get on with it.

Pomp and Circumstance is a lovely tune, but the number of repeats it gets at graduation ceremonies is too high. The one that irks me the most is Stars and Stripes Forever by Sousa. The repeat of the first section and the repeat of the final two sections do not add enough new in the orchestration for me to remain interested. I would prefer a shorter, snappier march.
