"prog by numbers" 

Hit the nail on the head there!  Though I don't think much better of Discipline, I'd have to pick them in this poll.  
oh yeah

Haken pushes all the right buttons, but for me there is not much substance behind it.  The dreaded prog by numbers moniker, I'm afraid, as far as I see it.  Maybe with more exposure they will click with me.
 
Discipline is passion, great hooks, tremendous vision.  They produced (along with Anglagard) one of the enduring prog albums from the 1990s. 
 
But to each his own!

Indeed, they've mastered what I loved about DT so much -wedding between melody and complexity.

Discipline ? I don't get the fuss. I've tried several times their new album and can see why people like it, but me personally ? Nope, doesn't ring a bell.

There must be someone like me out there, right ? Not everybody has fallen under enchantment of them :-D

I love Discipline and can't wait to see them at ROSFest. I've tried listening to Haken quite a few times as they come so highly recommended, but haven't gotten into them yet.

Haken, certainly. Discipline is of course great, but not that great ... I am eagerly waiting for someone to do negative review - Haken already have Bonnek's 3 stars review and two members posted 2-star reviews as well ... Discipline has no negative review :-)

Regressive Metal Scene? Freudian Slip?

Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Haken is good but I'll forget them in 5 years. Discipline's "Limbo" from UNFOLDED LIKE STAIRCASE is one of the top prog songs of the 90's. The new album initially really fell flat for me but I'm liking it more and more over time.

Discipline (and Parmenter) are great artists.
I don't care for Haken at all but they're pretty good at what they do (at least on Visions)

Though Haken is a great and promising band, my vote definitely goes for Discipline. In fact, "To Shatter All Accord" may probably be my top 2011 album.
