3 stars I was lucky enough to see Bill Bruford at a drum clinic 5 days ago. Opening the night off with Hell's Bells (playing to the sound board, not a live band) I was blown away. I quickly found this album in my dad's collection, as hearing him play Indiscipline (with a fully acoustic drum kit, and the spoken word removed) was phenomenal. It was truly something remarkable.

The album is fantastic, some of my favourite 80s music. The few things that got to me was the amount of electric instruments used. I can't stand electric drums - neither can Bruford - he even stated he would never return to using electronics. Though there is a bit of a synthetic, electronic sound, the writing and the ideas that shine through are amazing. The inspiration on all tracks is abundant; they're very interesting, unique and creative, talented, extremely atmospheric, and even funny at times.

One of the greatest 80s albums from the prog community, without a doubt. Do not mistake this as once-great manifestation of a once glorious band - this is in fact one of Crimso's most powerful and compelling releases, and shouldn't be missed because of the prejudices against the 80s.
