Cogs and Cogs (along with the rest of The Power and the Glory) is a masterpiece

I surprised myself and voted for "The Real Me".  I'm not a big Who fan, but it's everything I could want in the opening song of a great concept album...

I would have voted for Hotel Hobbies, but I never consider it as a stand alone song.  More like part 1 of what I like to call "The Hotel Hobbies Suite" which includes Warm Wet Circles and That Time of the Night.  They'll always be one 14 minute song for me.
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

It's a very strong song indeed! A classic rock staple for sure. 

I kind of agree with the Suite concept, when i first listened to Clutching Straws i noticed after That Time Of Night i really enjoyed the music - as if it was one song. I can listen to Hotel alone though. I think it stands alone better than Warm Wet Circles and That Time Of Night.

My favorite from the album at the moment is Slainte Mhath. Thumbs Up

Elephant9 - Fugl Fønix for me. Incredible way of starting an album! The drums from Lofthus are insane - buffalo-like or something to that effect.

Close call between GG and KC but as much as I love King Crimson, I think that Matte Kudasai is the weakest song of Discipline(Which is still a 5 stars album IMO)

I never was a fan of Matte Kudasai. That reminds me, I heard a fellow playing that song on the street corner earlier this summer.

Wax Simulacra for me.

Not surprised by the GG love, but i wasn't thinking this KC song would do so well? Especially over songs like Separation and Hotel Hobbies.

Matte Kudesai over Hotel Hobbies. One of the best KC ballads. Lovely vocals from Belew.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!
