3 stars DISCIPLINE were formed in Detroit,Michigan of US and soon became a major name of the local music scene.Led by the charismatic figure of vocalist Matthew Parmenter,DISCIPLINE participated at a lot of live shows,characterized by the theatrical performances of Parmenter (weird make-up,changing costumes).After their constant live activity,DISCIPLINE finally recorded their debut ''Push and profit'' in 1994.Although the album is very modern-sounding,straight references to the 70's spirit are evident throughout the listening.The compositions are varied,split in mellow GENESIS-like symphonic structures (great organ work),IQ-like smooth ballads (nice vocal melodies) and dark/complicated well-crafted arrangements in the vein of KING CRIMSON or even GENTLE GIANT (a combination of rock,jazz,pop and classical music),but every time with a strong and modernAmerican flavor.Matthew Parmenter meant to be one of the best modern performances with his alternating voice lying somewhere between IQ's Peter Nicholls and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR's Peter Hammill.A very interesting debut with tons of different styles and arrangements,that should appeal to any fan of diverse music journeys!
