And Toto, Yes, ELO...
I guess Genesis and Jethro Tull would work too.
And Anathema, some of Steven Wilson (his latest album in particular), a few Ayreon tunes, Pink Floyd if you've got some weed on standby, and I know of non-musicians who enjoyed 90's Dream Theater.
ehh I don't know how popular steven wilson or dream theater generally are outside of musically inclined fans. Pink Floyd definitely fits though. everybody knows Floyd.
What? Is Styx not good enough?
Yeah, true, but my point is they're more likely to be successful among non-musicians than, say, Animals As Leaders. They both regularly display their ability to write a song as opposed to a vehicle for "impressive" playing.
depends what era styx. mid 80s styx I'd say yes. Not so much with some of their earlier stuff.
I know lots of non-musicians who dig Dream Theater, and Steven Wilson was introduced to me by a non-musician.
Jeebuz guys, some of these clips you are posting are making me want to tear my ears off with my bare hands! These acts are actually popular?!
Regarding prog music, my mom never played an instrument until just recently, and she's the one who got me into prog. I think plenty of non-musicians used to listen to prog back in the 70's and 80's, but in the late 2010's, I'd take a guess that most non-musicians don't really give two shits about any style of music anymore, and just switch the radio on and off and surf channels, at least that's been my observation of younger folks these days.
Not a fan, really. But I am envious that she managed to make millions since the release of that song.
what happened to marcwormjim??
he got banned and is running around under an alt account
Here's an empirically unpopular opinion:
Radio singles from otherwise decent or great albums are often the most boring C-grade songs of the album.
I know, mass appeal and all that....
One that always gets me is Black Hole Sun. What a tedious, skippable SG tune compared to the rest of that album.
I'll also throw in on Morning After by Ratt, vs. Round and Round? srsly.
I can count on one hand the number of times I've heard Morning After on the radio. Round and Round is so riff laden. Out of the Cellar and Invasion of your Privacy are just the epitome of riff laden 80s/hair metal to me. so many good tracks.
can't imagine what he could get banned for. i mean everything really...but he went so long without being banned.
Yeah, I was unclear. Morning After, IMO, much better than Round and Round. Two great albums indeed.
Morning after has a better solo, but I don't know if I'd say the rhythm riffs are better. As far as I'm concerned there's no bad songs on Out of the Cellar.
My opinion remains unpopular .
Say bye bye.
Isn't that in itself a ban-able offense
He's funny and seems to know his shit but his brand of snark seems a little too pointed for some people
