5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Crims, 11 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Discipline [30th Anniversary Edition] (Audio CD)
Discipline is the first of the trilogy of red, blue and yellow albums by the newly-reformed (at the time) King Crimson. It is probably the most satisfying also. Fripp split the power-rock combo at the height of its success in the early 'seventies and the new line-up introduced two americans, Adrian Belew and Tony Levin. The music changed accordingly. Originally the band was to be called Discipline but reverted back to Crimson after some initial gigs. The album itself features 7 solid tracks. Elephant Talk kicks proceedings off with Belew's clever but simple lyrics of alternative words from the dictionary for "talk". Frame by Frame is next featuring the new duelling guitars of Fripp and Belew in an intricate time signature. A romantic Matte Kudasai follows, slow and atmospheric with whirling bird sounds from the guitar. Indiscipline is THE classic Crimson track building from a slow quiet sense of security into the trademark devil's music. Thela Hun Ginjeet or (Heat in the Jungle)is a fast rocking industrial piece, and the pace slows again with The Sheltering Sky. This shows Bill Bruford's box tapping skills to the fore and also Belew's incredible guitar effects. Discipline closes proceedings, hinting back to Indiscipline earlier and contrasting the piece. All in all an album that should be in everybody's collection and a strong return for the Crimson King.
