Pure Reason Revolution brings a rather unique sound for being a prog rock band, and there isn't actually any band I can directly say sounds similar to them. This is particularly because they mix a lot of electro into it, and some songs might come of more similar to pop than prog rock actually.
I haven't had the chance to listen to their latest album as of yet, but Amor Vincit Omnia is a pure quality release, rivaling or maybe even beating their debut album The Dark Third. For some this album might come of as a bit of grower and need a few listens, and maybe the debut album is actually a better place to start.
The highlight of their music is probably the vocals which fit very well into their style of music, and in particular the songs where both the woman and man sings it is very easy to fall in love with the vocals.
All in all this is one of the best records I've heard in the last 5 years and I can easily recommend it.
