In a way, I actually tried to I put off getting this. A few years ago when King Crimson released the VROOOM EP, I listened to it on almost a daily basis. That EP was the warm-up for THRaK, but when THRaK came out, I didn't like it at much as I liked VROOOM. I thought that VROOOM a certain vitality that the THRaK tracks lacked (that's fun to say). I couldn't help but think that if all of THRaK had the same spontenaity and rawness that VROOOM had, it would have been a stellar album instead of just a good one. I was afraid I would ruin "The Power to Believe" for myself in a similar fashion.
However, I put "Happy With......" on my Christmas list and someone got it for me. At the time, I was indeed extremely happy with it. Two months ago I would have given it five stars. It really does have some fantastic material on it. But now that "The Power to Believe" is out, the question arises: does this EP stand on its own? It it worth owning in addition to all of King Crimson'' other recent material.
The truth is, although "Happy With....." EP is a great recording, if you have both "The ConstruKCtion of Light" and "The Power to Believe", you really don't need to get it. All the best material on it is already on those albums. "Lark's Tounges in Aspic part IV" is great, but the version here is really not that much different than the one of "The ConstrucKCtion of Light". This one is probably more aggrtessive, but you miss out on the apocalyptic vocals on the Coda, which is an album highlight. The awesome tracks "Eyes Wide Open" and "Happy With....." are both on "The Power to Believe", and those versions only vary from these slightly.

The latest EP release from the prog-rock masters is an excellent preview and taste for fans of this year's upcoming studio disc "The Power To Believe" which will be released March 4.
The ten track EP comes right at you and grabs you with the title track "Happy With What You Have To Be Happy With".
With legendary guitarist Robert Fripps roaring guitar and Adrian Belew's vocals, Trey Gunn's power bass playing and Pat Mastelotto's masterful drumming, this song is a very in your face rock track.
The fifth track which is one of my favorites is the acoustic ladened "Eyes Wide Open". It's very melodic and beautifully done track.
Another favorite is the ninth track "Larks' Tongues in Aspic (Part IV). It's a ten minute instrumental opus that is very familiar territory for Crimson fans.
This disc makes me very anxious for the next release which is just a few short weeks away. In the meantime all you Crimson fans should go out and get this if you haven't already to tide you over till then.

Being one of the many Crim fans that was partially (but not completely) disappointed by their previous studio effort, "The Construkction Of Light", I was a little anxious to listen this EP sampler of their upcoming studio album: "The Power To Believe". But after I popped the cd into my stereo (and listened to it a couple of times) all of my worries were diminished. This is Crim at their mighty best!!!! So, if this sampler "Happy With What You Have To Be Happy With" is any indication of what us Crim fans have in store, then we should have no worries about their future.
Now, getting down to business, I will review the album. The album starts with "Bude" which is one of the many "audio Haikus" that encompass the album. There is really nothing to say about this song except that it is both interesting and beautiful. The next song is the title track, "Happy With What You Have To Be Happy With". It sounds somewhat like a faux "nu-metal" song, but actually it is a new type of music that Crimson is construkcting called "nuovo metal". And the lyrics, as many reviewers have mentioned earlier, are hilarious! The next song is "Mie Gakure" which is an instrumental that reminds me of the song "Matte Kudasai" from Crimson's excellent 1981 album "Discipline." "She Shudders", the next song, is another little "audio Haiku" that leads into the next song: "Eyes Wide Open". "Eyes Wide Open" is beautiful acoustic number featuring Adrian Belew's amazing vocals. The next song, "Shoganai", is a nice little percussive song that reminds me somewhat of "Wounded Knee" by Primus. The next song "I Ran", no, not a Flock Of Seagulls cover, is another little "audio Haiku" that leads into the next song... "Potato Pie" which, as been mentioned by other reviewers, is a blues song as done by King Crimson.

De verdad, no entiendo las críticas positivas que, en general, está teniendo este disco. Si eres seguidor del grupo (yo lo soy desde los primeros setenta) probablemente te defraudará. Si no lo eres, tampoco creo que te enganche de por vida. Ciertamente, King Crimson ha sido un grupo caracterizado por los cambios, musicales y de personal, y, sobre todo, por un innegable afán de "vanguardia" de ir "un paso más allá". En este disco, esos rasgos no aparecen por ningún lado. Analicemos el disco en detalle. Solamente 4 temas están lo suficientemente desarrollados como para ser considerados "algo más que interludios". Uno de ellos es la enésima versión de Lark Tongues in Aspic. Part IV (la cuál, por cierto ya había aparecido en uno de los últimos discos del Club de Coleccionistas). El tema que da titulo al disco no es más que un tema heavy que, para mi, tiene el triste honor de sustituir a "Prozak Blues" como la peor canción de KC. Sundays Blues es simplemente eso, un blues, basado en Level Five (tampoco es que el punto de partida sea ninguna maravilla) y Eyes Wide Open es, sin duda, lo mejor del disco pero no pasa de ser una correcta canción de Belew de las que encontramos a decenas en cualquiera de sus discos.
En cuanto a los interludios si que he de reconocer que tienen cierto interés, especialmente Soganai, pero su escaso desarrollo impiden darles una mayor valoración.
Mucho tiene que remontar el vuelo el futuro "power to believe" si King Crimson quiere reverdecer viejos laureles.
