I wonder if todays audience can be considered to have a more sophisticated and broader range of taste than the audience that was first introduced to prog in the late 1960's? Thereby giving todays audience the ability to consider the diverse and esoteric forms of prog more accessible than in the past.
 
I'm thinking that would be a definite Yes. The way to discover and absorb new music in the old days was through the radio. There was no worldwide internet with dedicated websites and streaming cablecasts with endless discussions on hundreds of albums to widen a persons musical perspective.

Yeah there's probably some truth to that, but what most youngins have completely lost in the process, is the vital gift of patience. The mere task of sitting through an entire album without having to skip to something new inside of 5 minutes...

As for the thread:
Pure Reason Revolution. Wins over chicks like a regular Don Juan.

That's funny but absolutely true. I had to get up and lift the needle on the record player to the next track. Today it's hit the >| button and one has entirely bypassed side one of Tales from Topographic Oceans.
 
Pure Reason Revolution....I liked their first two albums immensely, never really got into their third and last one. Their mellow stuff really knocks me out especially "The Exact Colour".

OV is actually a damned good album, I 'm finding.  Oh wait, that's because I was listening to Brainstorm at the same time (two youtube tabs both playing music which blended in a beautifully complex and quirky way).

I'm a cd generation dude, but I'm going backwards and have started purchasing vinyls on a regular basis. Keeps me patient and ready for whatever comes along. Sometimes music needs a little time - or I need a little time. That "little time" very quickly gets annihilated by the skip button.

With Pure Reason Revolution I am somewhat odd in that I prefer their second one, Amor Vincit Omnia. I think it's the best album they put out, and one of the most successful attempts at fusing pop, electronic and prog.

Funny how over the years vinyl has verrrry slooowly been making its way back into the market place. Can I ask if you find it to be superior audio than CD's?

Overall I listen to Amor Vincit Omnia more often than The Dark Third. I agree that AVO is a hugely successful go at fusing pop, electronic and prog. For sure one of the best....which gets me to thinking....what other group has tried to merge pop, electronic and prog???? Radiohead is one.

Well...off on a bit of a tangent here....back on topic at some point.......

Shocked Interesting.
 
But yeah, OV is a good album, I reckon. I have to be in the mood for minimalistic guitar and drums avant math metal though. Y'know, the really common, everyday stuff. LOL

For me, the most accesible prog bands are Supertramp and some neo-prog band like Marillion. Pretty easy to listen.
To not listen to prog rock, you have to be thick as a brick...

Coheed & Cambria, a lot of Devin Townsend's work, Pain of Salvation(BE not withstanding), Protest The Hero(if coming from a metal background), The Dear Hunter, a lot of Riverside's later works(and I'd argue Out of Myself as well), Muse, Galahad, and Pure Reason Revolution

No need to get a vinyl collection !
Just pull yourself together, sit back and relax. Take control over your F#¤ miserable life, and then decide to NOT hit that skip button. LOL

I still say the most accessable Prog I've heard is OSI and CHROMA KEY.
It grooves so nicely. Great driving music and everyone that I have shared those 2 Kevin moore projects with people have loved it, especially the girls!!! Yes progheads...chicks dig OSI!!!
