3 stars US band Discipline releasing only two studio albums before mastermind Parmenter concentrated on his solo career had been certainly one of the better examples in Neo-Prog sub-genre (which is usually not my fave one). This one had been their debut being a solid effort though not quite on par with its excellent follow-up I would say. Overall tracks are shorter here and more in a song-based format and not only the cover design would assume a strong influence by Marillion. Still they were far from being just a clone band and presented a rather self-contained (though certainly derivative) style somewhere between Genesis, Crimson and Floyd. There's only one really weak track on here with the punk-ish pop song "Faces Of The Pretty". Highlights are "Carmilla" and "America" I would say but all other tracks especially "The Nursery Year" with its frightening lyrics coming camouflaged as a lullaby are certainly worth paying closer attention to. As a summary I can say that this debut might be interesting for Neo-Prog fans but personally I prefer their darker, more Crimson-inspired second album.
