Lost Gem: "Indiscipline" - King Crimson (1981)


"I repeat myself when under stress.I repeat myself when under stress.I repeat myself when under stress."--> King Crimson <--

Seven years had passed since the legendary prog-floggers...King Crimson released a studio album. It was 1981. A different climate. And most thought the band was long-gone, boned, and buried.

However...nobody informed guitar genius, Robert Fripp, Bill Bruford (drums) Adrian Belew (guitar/vocals) or Tony Levin (bass).

"Discipiline" (1981) is a stunning must-own album filled with thrilling maneuvers...both powerful and innovative. And it still sounds amazingly fresh.
Robert Fripp, Tony Levin, Bill Bruford, Adrian Belew
Fripp spins one guitar web after another...but loosens the reins enough for the others to take their trip. And Belew, Bruford, and Levin sound inspired and dangerous. Lots of noise. No notes wasted.

Lost Gem:--> "Indiscipline"...has all the unnerving ramblings of a psychotic loner (it's something much more innocent) with Fripp and Belew shredding each others back with a guitar cat-o-nine-tails. Levin and Bruford let their own selves in. Begs repeated listening.

Have you heard this gem?


I do remember one thing.
It took hours and hours but..
by the time I was done with it,
I was so involved, I didn't know what to think.
I carried it around with me for days and days..
playing little games
like not looking at it for a whole day
and then.. looking at it.
to see if I still liked it.
I did.

I repeat myself when under stress.
I repeat myself when under stress.
I repeat myself when under stress.
I repeat myself when under stress.
I repeat..
The more I look at it,
the more I like it.
I do think it's good.
The fact is..
no matter how closely I study it,
no matter how I take it apart,
no matter how I break it down,
It remains consistent.
I wish you were here to see it.

I like it.

Good stuff!
