Sorry if someone has already posted this topic--just haven't been able to find it.

Within the past year I've been watching a lot of music reaction videos, especially first-time reactions to progressive and prog-related tracks/performances.  Mostly these are by Millennial/Hip-hop generation-ers who are reacting to older music on their first listen, most of them with little knowledge of the music/genre(s) they're reacting to (or at least, so they claim--for some, probably not true). Pink Floyd seems to be the most popular band to react to.

 A lot of these vids are not so great, either because the reactions don't seem genuine, or the listeners reactions/critiques are rather shallow.  But some are really good.  My fave so far is posted below:  A positive reaction to Rush, YYZ, with interesting commentary.  This is the first listen by these guys (George and Ryan) to Rush. I like these guys because their reactions seem genuine, and they also seem more honest in their commentary than many (and there's a lot of prog they admit they don't personally like though they may admire the musicianship on some level).

I also have a fave negative reaction vid but I'll post it later.

If you have favorite reaction videos, post them here.

I don't really watch reaction videos but I've seen that one and yes those guys do seem like they are genuine in their reactions.

Very sympathetic guys having fun while genuinly enjoying the music... made me appreciate Rush a little more. If videos like this is the future of "reviews" I really wouldn't mind. A more conventional reviewer but I kind of like that Needle Drop-guy too. I guess he's considered kinda hipster but he's well articulated, feels genuine and open minded to me (+ likes plenty of prog).

It reminds me of how wowed I was when I first heard YYZ and Moving Pictures generally back in high school.

I was looking for a reaction video to some of the music I most listen to. I found one for Magma's De Futura, and one for Tangerine Dream's Ricochet and a couple of Cardiacs ones, but I didn't find them interesting enough to post.

I'd like to see a Puritans React to Comus or Kids React to Shub-Niggurath.

Here's a Kids React to Rush's Tom Sawyer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDsFzsi6EFk

Not Prog, but here's a Reaction video to David Bowie's Life on Mars (language warning in effect):

You can't get properly a piece of music if you keep pausing it every 20 seconds Confused

^of course its not optimal music listening but this video has a another purpose. There's a special thrill in listening to-and enjoying music you discover and love together with a friend I can relate to as well.

I've seen a few including the one for YYZ that is shown here. I would probably rather have them react after they have heard the whole song though instead of every twenty seconds. I understand copywrite reasons for not playing the whole thing but it's distracting. 

These guys seem genuine but they really should do their homework first. Then maybe they wouldn't make assumptions like rush were an early prog band and statements like "I can hear the early stages of prog blossoming." WTF? Confused I understand not everyone has the insight and knowledge of this genre that we do but come on! Lol.

He said that before he said something about hearing the "stages of prog blossoming." However, he did sort of correct himself later saying something like some people in the comments section might know different or something to that effect.

Well, for sure I never though of comparing YYZ with Michael Jackson's Beat It.

Yes they should make videos where the just sit quiet, listen to the whole song and not interact with their audience. No you don't "get" it properly this way but its possible to say something about what you're listening to, what is happening, whether that works for you or not - and why (+hopefully in an interesting sort of way).

I've noticed that Yes, especially Roundabout, has been a big request for George and Ryan.  The reason they may have not done it is because of rights issues and/or getting blocked.   I've seen very few Yes (also King Crimson) reactions, probably for the same reason. 

But there are some: this one of the Yes Album is heavily edited, (but ironically, another that Weaboo did of Close to the Edge is the entire uncut album). He does full albums where he can, and lets them run all the way without stopping where he can.

I admit, I don't like Weaboo's reactions/commentary as much as George and Ryan, but at least he's one of the few that are diving heavy into the world of Classic Prog!

Can't stand that song or that album for that matter. All I hear on that song is how Rush were clearly influenced by Stevie Wonder. I don't like fusion, funk or jazz, and that's what I hear in YYZ, not prog rock, and certainly not prog metal, which those two guys mentioned. Those guys are fun though. But Irritating that one kept referring to "early prog"

I think maybe they don't react to Yes because Yes aren't as high profile a band as Rush or Pink Floyd and haven't come across them(yet).

I must admit I've never watched this type of videos, but I like what they say in general. I guess I have a lot to catch up, though I don't think I'll spend a lot of time on these type of things.
