4 stars A good progressive band demonstrates technical instrumental skills. A superior progressive band has that combined with a good and unique singer. Discipline is in the superior range. There are so many good bands out there, but usually when it comes time for the singing, it narrows my list of the "superior" bands. Discipline is one of those bands that combines awesome musicality and unique vocals from Matthew Parmenter.

"Circuitry" and "When the Walls are Down" have been in the Discipline catalogue for a while, but finally get studio versions. They both are awesome. The other songs are brand new to me and are very impressive. "Rogue" is the new epic masterpiece that every prog fan should hear.

There is something engaging with Matthew Parmenter's voice. It is unique, melodious, emotive and draws you in. It's not a power voice like Daniel Gildenlow, but can be equally emotive. Guitarist Bouda is the Buddha of guitar gods. Could he be the most underrated guitarist of the prog world? What a unique clean tone!

Is it better than "Unfolded Like Staircase"? I think they are equal in quality. There are excellent aspects in both albums. It is much better than "Push and Profit" I think. The only thing is I wish they did a studio version of "Mickey Mouse Man" but maybe it didn't fit in with the more "serious" songs.

I can't say enough of Discipline. Get this album if you like good music combined with awesome vocals!! The production is also excellent.
