Many of these album are not "Progressive Rock", but merely experimental, kind of rock-ish, sometimes not even that.
I somewhat agree. There's a lot of bad and boring stuff there (too much for my liking), but every now and then there are some that are worth checking out.
I stopped trying out records there, they don't have what I'm looking for, it seems. I really appreciate the effort they're making to push lesser known and even unknown artists and give them a platform. I Germany this would not be possible due to the Gema fees.
I occasionally listen to some of the records there. Especially the albums which a) I know by their name (due to reviews and hype); b) are recommended by one of you guys; c) have nice artwork.
For example: Subsignal I knew because of reviews I read in the past, some here like their music and they have cool cover art.
I also want to try out Leap Day, because (like the other Dutch band Silhouette) they seem to go from 'mediocre unknown' band to 'rising to fame'.
I'm now also listening to PFM in Classic "Da Mozart, A Celebration". Because I have listened to some of PFM's 70's albums and liked it. And I like that they take Mozart compositions and do some cool things with it. Sounds great actually! Pretty jazzy too.
I'll never be drawn to stuff like the potato chips brand cover art...
