5 stars How could I ever expect that when I finally got to hear an Indonesian band it would be such an overwhelming musical experience? DISCUS was formed in 1996 and their music is as progressive and innovative as progressive rock can be. They incorporate many different genres into one. Here you can find elements from such different genres as Art-Rock, Blues, Canterbury, Classical, Jazz, Jazz-fusion, Jazz-rock, Progressive Rock and-god knows what. Any comparisons to other bands would probably only confuse you, so I won't try to. - The musician's virtuosity is more than evident, and besides the traditional rock instrumentation, they're also using 21-String Harpguitar, Balinese Rindik, Flute, Soprano, Alto & Tenor Saxophones, Clarinet & Bass Clarinet and Violin. - Maybe their music is a little bit too intricate for the average listener, but what the heck; they've got enough bands to listen to, so let us have DISCUS for ourselves. I only hope that they get the chance to be heard throughout the world. I can't find superlatives enough to describe it. Highly recommended!
