  • Photographer: Philippe Hamon.
  • After spending the second half of the '70s on various solo projects, the irrepressible Robert Fripp decided to reinvent King Crimson. Instead of building on the group's '70s legacy, Fripp burned his bridges and started from scratch, even though KC drummer Bill Bruford returned to the fold for the '80s version of the band. The new Crimson was influenced equally by funk, world music, Balinese Gamelan orchestras, minimalism and the new pan-cultural sounds being made by the likes of Talking Heads and Peter Gabriel (in retrospect, the former's REMAIN IN LIGHT, which featured future Crimson guitarist/vocalist Adrian Belew, seems an undeniable influence).
  • The interlocking melodic/rhythmic patterns of Fripp and Belew's guitars, Tony Levin's Chapman Stick and Bruford's electro-acoustic kit combined the Gamelan approach with a Phillip Glass-like repetition. With each cycle, a note or phrase would change slightly, altering the rhythm and focus of the pattern. The effect is both hypnotic and invigorating. Fripp's frenetic guitar-synth excursions and Belew's feedback-heavy post-Hendrix leads merge with this technique to fine effect. Belew's David Byrne-like tenor, unpretentious lyrics and pop (!) songwriting sensibilities make the package complete.

Professional Reviews
Q (8/01, p.150) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A well-rounded work...featuring pachyderm rage on 'Elephant Talk' and the sublime, near-hit 'Matte Kudasai'..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "DISCIPLINE was egghead rock in the Eno/Gabriel tradition....It still sounds compelling."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.95) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his new animal delivered short songs that were funky, sparkling musical math that connected with a new audience as well as the old guard."

Colin Burt on
A solid, dense, compact album by a quartet of supremely gifted musicians. The opening of the opening "Elephant Talk" is mesmerising (Tony Levin's stick is an instrument to be in awe of), and the rest of the album is full of tight compositions, brilliant musicianship and odd metres all over the place, different instruments playing in different time signatures at the same time all over the place. And "The Sheltering Sky" will either be your favourite track (yes), or it will make you tear your hair out in frustration. This album is definitely for those who like their music more adventurous.
