4 stars I have been listening to Discipline for some time, and finally decided to get the live album now that I am on a live album craze of sorts. The first thing that is worth noting is that the download version of disc1 at Google Play, iTunes, and Bandcamp has a track 6 called Band Introduction, which introduces each member and their instruments. It is a nonessential track as it contains no music, but is worth a listen to get to know the band more. While we may be fans of the music, it is good to know that there are real people that produce the music. Discipline seems like a humble bunch of guys that love music and the art that they create. Led by Matthew Parmenter on vocals, keyboards, and whatever else, the Van Der Graaf Generator references will always be present... which is not a bad thing. In music, there will always be someone that came first, but Discipline create some of their own high quality progressive rock music. This live album combines the majority of To Shatter All Accord and Unfolded Like Staircase, and adds a track from their most underrated album Push & Profit. As far as the timeline goes, there is no presence of Captives Of The Wine Dark Sea on this release. The first thing that I noticed is how amazing this live recording sounds. It sounds clear with lots of pop, making it a good introduction to the band. I would call Canto IV and Dead City two of the absolute best tracks from Discipline, and the live versions are excellent. If you are a fan, this is a worthy addition to your collection. If you do not own anything from them, this is also a good starting point to sample two of their best albums.
