5.0 out of 5 stars A New Sound For A New Age, 18 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Discipline (Audio CD)
Adapting to the post-punk experimentalism of the early 1980s with genuine intelligence and enthusiasm, Discipline remains one of King Crimson's definitive statements.
Although containing elements of the avant-funk of Talking Heads, the ethnic grooves of Peter Gabriel and the constantly shifting Minimalist rhythms of Steve Reich, this frequently thrilling and complex album ultimately bears the unique imprint of the four highly individual and talented musicians at the heart of this 'Rock Gamelan' creation.
A clean and uncluttered production allows the band's power and articulate spikiness to shine through unfettered, while Fripp and Belew's guitar playing is undeniably dazzling, yet never remotely exhibitionist.
The gloriously unexpected lyricism of 'The Sheltering Sky' provides a hypnotic and mellow contrast to the rest of the album's inspired austerity, and alongside the relentless New Wave Prog Minimalist assault of 'Frame by Frame' provides my favourite moments on this extremely consistent, almost flawless, album.
A new sound then and still an influential one.
