Three Of A Perfect Pair
Review by Gary Hill
When King Crimson reformed in the 1980’s to create the Discipline album the sound they presented was quite different from the classic Crimson of the 1970’s. While I liked all of the discs from this Belew, Bruford, Fripp and Levin lineup, I still preferred the “old school” stuff. The thing is, this disc, the third from that grouping was the shining star to me because it managed to merge both old and new sounds into a collage that was both entertaining and musically challenging. While there are one or two songs here that I might consider “throw aways” the killer music certainly makes up for it enough to land this disc into “great” territory. It still holds up remarkably well all these years later, too.
