Though many progressive rock bands went pop as the 80's came around (I'm looking at you, Genesis and Yes), King Crimson changed their sound, yet retained the musicianship and creativity of their heyday. From the weird and funky "Elephant Talk" to the beautiful "Matte Kudasai", to the ridiculously catchy "Thela Hun Ginjeet", Discipline is a fantastic album that shows how a band can adapt to changing times without selling out.
Could never digest the sound of this album. Consider it to be seriously overhyped and I actually only like the t/t and Matte Kudasai. The vocals are quite interesting as well, really theatrical, but that's just that. Of the least favourites off their discog.
Say what you want about King Crimson, but quirkiness is certainly among their strengths. Discipline is by no means a boring album, and will frequently entertain the mind throughout with music ranging from the calm and relaxing, to the deep and reflective and to the very energetic and bizarre - with very satisfying results. Deeply recommended.
