3 stars It was just a coincidence by the time when I spun the legendary 'Lark's Tongue in Aspic' album I found that I have this CD as well. It's good to compare how the old days of King Crimson had gone and transcended into something totally different since the release of Discipline album in early eighties. Since then I had a new definition of King Crimson and I thought this was truly a progressive band because the music style kept changing. Whether it's changing in a good or bad direction only fans and listeners can judge. For me personally I don't mind seeing the band changed their musical direction and created new landmark of what progressive music is all about. To me, Discipline might be the answer of King Crimson to the huge interest of people on new wave music in early eighties.

Even though this is an EP, I enjoy it quite well as the music is well crafted - forget about the old days of King Crimson. Of course I cannot compare 'Easy Money' with 'One Time' even though I like the first more than the latter. But, "One Time" is not a bad track at all and in fact I always expect to see the band play this song during the live records. The opening track "Vroom" is also something that inspires my mind on how the members of the band pushed the envelope on the kind of music they had been playing so far.

It's a well deserved EP that all KC fans should have it. Keep on proggin' ...!!!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
