Actually I could only repeat what many reviewers before me said already. It's an excellent prog album and one of the best ones in the 90's in general. The overall dark sound and the use of sax in "Crutches" reminds a bit to VDGG, as well Parmenter's voice is a bit reminiscent to Hammill's one, but this is in fact all they have in common. One could also draw parallels to GENESIS with the young Peter Gabriel and sometimes to KING CRIMSON, especially in "Into The Dream ". Though the multiple 70's influences are obvious, the album does not sound too much derivative. DISCIPLINE created here very well their own original and independent style by blending all these influences perfectly together. The compositions are excellent, very intricate without being too much pretentious at any moment and nice to listen from the very first spin to many repeated ones. Moreover the performance of all musicians is really brilliant.

As a summary this is an excellent addition to any prog collection and worth an extra half star!
