With so much of new prog finding it's way to Youtube, should Prog Archives set up a format that allows music videos to accompany prog album reviews?

^If you wanted to turn someone on to some music, quickly, would not a video do the job as well as being a definitive descriptor of the artist's sound or style?

You can do that already. There is a thread for "what prog DVD are you watching today?". YouTube videos could easily be posted here with a discussion. Either that or the Prog Recommendations Thread. I do not see the necessity to add something else to these.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

I do Steve. Imagine the new Steven Wilson album reviewed with the addition of the new video. Now this is already old hat, but more obscured works form artists like Kayo Dot, above, would benefit immensely, IMO.

^No one said it was hard. However, a video removed from it's context, in this case, an album review, loses something in translation, for lack of a better description, with the passage of time.

Btw, how hard is it for PA to add this feature to the review's page?

If a review would benefit from a video, it's probably not very well written. Stern Smile

Clap

Also, I know that a lot of people get issues from videos being embedded in forum posts, especially those folks with slow internet. It probably wouldn't be ideal for those users if they were embedded in reviews, too.

I guess it depends what type of women we are trying to attract......a bush woman? Or one of those highfalutin types that need paper and heat in the toilet room  LOL
