5 stars I listened to this album again recently, and I forgot how I played this thing on repeat for days when I discovered it. This is the album that made me fall in love with King Crimson. Elephant Talk is so freaking cool. I saw a video on YouTube of them doing it live and it was even better. Frame by Frame is unbelievable with how fast they play that opening riff. I love Adrian Belew's vocal melody in that song a lot, too. Indiscipline is so weird, and absolutely amazing. The Sheltering Sky is a super cool and mellow jam sessions with tons of bizarre guitar effects. Thela Hun Ginjeet is an amazing song to watch Belew play live. He freaking jams out on it, and totally made me respect the song even more. How could I forget Matte Kudasai, which is probably Crimson's most beautiful song ever, in my opinion. Discipline is a very intricate and interesting track, too. The version of this album that I have contains a bonus track entitled Matte Kudasai [Alternate Version], and it is so freaking crazy. It is this unbelievable funk jam that Tony Levin is just a beast on. King Crimson albums usually take a long time to digest, and this one does, as well, but it's also very accessible at the same time. Every song on the album is perfected, tight, and incredible. I love every form that King Crimson has taken in its existence, and this first album from the 1980s band is simply sublime.
