5 stars I listened to this album some time ago and then turned back towards their first release. Afterwards I got the live album and now I'm pretty sure that "Unfolded Like Staircase" delivers everything that a five-star album needs. The only disadvantage is that the enormous potential that Discipline presents has brutally ended and there is no chance for a continuation of the brilliant musicianship found here (however, there might be something of Discipline in Permenter's solo album). "Unfolded..." shows much more maturity than its predecessor. The most remarkable thing in my opinion was the skill and flexibility with which they manipulate the mood of a song. And songs are quite long and give a lot of room for the musicians, so you'll find a nice balance between soloes, sung and melodic parts. "Canto IV (Limbo)" is especially interesting in this respect and makes you feel like you're on a journey through musical complexity. All in all, "Unfolded Like Staircase" works and calls for support. If it had been recorded in 1970s, it might have been considered an absolute classic.
