My answer: gotta hear them all before I vote, although I doubt that any of these choices will do. I'm serious. Geek

I'd say Trick of the Tail. It's got some nice accessible tunes like Ripples, and the girls are more likely to recognize and like Phil Collins. Although as a young person, I don't think I'd risk playing prog to a likely partner.

All I gotta say is:

'Don't Answer Me' - Alan Parsons Project. With that painful adult contemporary jazz sax solo and the maudlin, 1980's cynical romantic love lyrics, you can't go wrong here, m'boys.

My ex used to really respond to the sadder Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree stuff like `Buying New Soul', `Don't Hate Me', etc, but I remember listening to their instrumental improv P.Tree album `Metanoia' and her saying `You have to stop playing this, it's so boring....it's like...nothing music'

At this point I was like `You know, I don't think this is working anymore....' lol!

Only kidding!

But seriously, this list is so strange, I couldn't imagine really ANY of these albums `impressing the ladies' much. God, one listen to Peter Hammill's screeching theatrical tormented rants and they'd run a mile!!

I knew one very attractive girl who loved Zappa but i think overall i'd go with the majority and pick Caravan.

A Trick of the Tail seems to have that melodic quallty that most of the ladies I have known go for.  At least the missus prefers the more melodic stuff (she dislikes King Crimson and can't stand The Residents).  For myself, though, there are some Vangelis albums that have worked really well date-wise, such as Antarctica and Themes.  Loosing one's virginity to Thick as a Brick, though, is classic.

You could apply it to lesbians - you could have a lesbian interested in prog who is trying to date other women who're interested in prog.

As for homosexual men - they don't exist, anyway.

It is unfortunate for me. I am the only gay man that I know that likes prog, although I am sure there are others I just have not met any. I know there are a few of us on this board.

To be honest, neither do I, but there are plenty of moments that approach cacophany and atonality, just enough to put her off.  Matte Kundasai she could get into, but not Thela Hun Ginjeet; I Talk to the Wind but not 21st Century Schizoid Man.  At least I have weaned her off her constant musical diet of 38 Special, JImmy Buffet, and Boston.  Those last two I enjoy btw.

I have a Facebook friend who's primarily into prog and he's also openly gay.  So you're not alone.  Unless you're him.

How's that, if I may ask?

They don't exist. It was proven by ol' Nietzsche some time ago. I guess you missed it. He disproved gay men and discovered electricity right around the same time Richard Simmons was inventing Hinduism and the assembly line in 1642 - something something ocean blue.

sh*t, that doesn't seem right. That's the last time I take my history lessons from books I bought in the Dollar Store. At least they were right about that fabricated moon landing fiasco stuff. To think, Neil Armstrong was actually a tralmafadorian transvestite carousel operator. The depravity that Washington will sink to!

The de-evolution will not be traumatized. Some type of Shakespearean quote. I got it! Et tu, brute? And a partridge in a pared brie.

1st place (both title sensuality/pervertedness and actual music): Caravan

Perhaps ironically, their album In the Land of Grey and Pink would also win both for me compared with anything on this list.

Last place (both title and music): Hammill....yikes.

Also, I don't have any losing-virginity stories, but the first time I made out with my future wife, I put my playlist on random (starting with Journey for the lady, of course). She was still there through Jacob's Ladder, and the shuffle chose nicely by ending on June.

When I was a kid, my sister and I would turn the house into a Haunted House, and I made a tape that just looped the spooky middle part of Echoes to use as our soundtrack.

Lately for Halloween, I've played Danzig's "Black Aria", Current 93's "Nature Unveiled", and The Swans' "The Seer".

I like to bust out some MDK or UZ - Heresie when I'm on a date.  That usually gets the babes all hotted up at my dorkdom.  When I'm really feeling that Casanova mood come over me, I like to slip on some Merzbow for that special lady.

I had gfs who loved prog. That had nothing to do with how we got along. My wife doesn't like my music, and everything's hunky dory (knock on wood). (Although to be fair, she pretended to love my music for the first couple of years, Wink)

I gotta say, this is a toughie. The albums that my girlfriend and I listened to the night we met were Starless and Bible Black and Red, then I gave her copies of Red and Inner Mounting Flame (the latter she's heard most often and really likes), she likes Yes, and my favorite album on this list is The Silent Corner, but she wasn't too keen on Hammill's voice when I gave her a copy of Godbluff, so I literally have no idea how to vote. Wacko

None of the ones listed I suspect. Alright, if you are lucky enough to bag one of those freaky chicks that love everything hippie/punk/alternative - you might get away with Caravan.

For dates, I'd pick one of these, which incidentally brings in some funkyness with the prog:

Caravan - If I Could Do It Again I'd Do It All Over You could seem a bit pushy. A Trick of the Tail has feminine sensibilities, which makes it a great choice, but if Close to the Edge gets played it will not be a night she would soon forget! I probably wouldn't force my taste in music on a first date anyhow though.

I reckon Trick of the Tail is the only one that wouldn't send them running for the exit.

If you played Free Hand by Gentle Giant you'd need one, 'cause you're not getting laid any time soon.

OK, Tubes that is unnecessary. I know you don't like GG but stop it already!

DAMN, Dave, I have not listened to that dirty sweaty Afreeeeeeeeka! album in years, and it is the SEX itself!! Going to dig it out now, that honking noisy sax is a killer....ladies, line up!

That's also a great cover too, the only way I would have found it even better is if instead of a wrestler it was a ninja!
