3.0 out of 5 stars a different crimson yet again, 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Discipline [30th Anniversary Edition] (Audio CD)
Strange album. Im a big crimson fan but they have always been a most frustrating band to me. I dont think theres ever been another band who can go from the sublime to the ordinary and back again within the space of one album. All their albums suffer from this malady - this one being a prime offender

As usual- there is at least one monstrous crimson song on here which justifies the whole album and means that you simply must buy it. That track is 'indiscipline' which must be one the greatest songs this band have ever recorded. Truly otherwordly arrangements and as heavy as an elephant in concrete boots - This is an astonishing peice of music - it totally blew my mind when i first heard it - and this remaster makes it even more immense if thats possible

The rest....? well, crimson always have been a band that likes to go off on curves. Here though - i dont get it. sounds more like talking heads than crimson to me. exceptionally annoying early 80's bass-lines run through all the tracks (indiscipline excepted)and really grate. Fripps guitar lacks bite and the whole bunch of songs dont really go anywhere as far as im concerned

Again though - the track 'indisciple' being the exception. You should buy this album immediately just for this track, and especially in this remastered condition - totally off the scale.
