comment Meaning of 自慢の目利き
@Poriko More specifically, what part of the expression do you find confusing? 自慢 and 目利き can both be understood with very basic dictionary lookups

If you want to be technical then yeah it's not lyricist, but in this case, for all intents and purposes, that's what it means.

There are indeed many non-joyo kanji that many people can read, and there are many situations where it may be fine to use them. As a rule, though, I think basing it off the list is ok. Anything beyond that I think would be going on intuition, and if such intuition is not developed I can't think of any other way to judge except to search for frequency.
