This review is from: Discipline, 40th Anniversary Series (DVD Audio)
Discipline was one of those albums that I loved. But I forgot I loved it. It was always overlooked when choosing which KC album to play.
So when the 40th Anniversary remaster was being made with Steven Wilson on the mixing desk I knew were were in for a treat. He had done wonders for 'Red' and the others so far issued.
I ordered this together with 'Starless and Bible Black', a classic in my book. So when they arrived I played them with open ears and anticipation.
You will not be disappointed. The Wilson ears and hand have worked a miracle on Discipline. Like the previous reviewer says it's like a veil has been lifted. To my ears the bottom end, Levin's bass and Bruford's batterie, have been given a power and authority that previous editions lacked. I think the technical phrase is 'umph'. The guitar work is clear and to listen to Fripp and Belew interlocking guitar lines is a marvel to behold.
The album truly is aural knitting at its best. That makes it sound analytical and cold. It's not. It is a warm, funny, exotic and powerful album and all the more so for Wilson's remix.
Plenty of bonus material on the DVD part to keep any Crimso drooling too.
