5.0 out of 5 stars Pure gem March 18 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Definite five stars. The genius of Fripp is unmistakeably embedded in each piece. I especially treasure Level Five - what a gem!. I already own an amazing Eyes Wide Open show on DVD recorded in Japan, and that piece opens the whole concert. Shivers down your spine. Period.
A must have for Crimson fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Jan. 2 2014
By Marcus Almighty TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well being a very large King Crimson fan, I was curious to hear this album. As it was one without Bill Bruford and Tony levin..the rhythm section that KC wrote and recorded many classics with. But this album has shown me one thing. That Robert Fripp can write songs that still sound ahead of time and can still be believeable in the KC song canon. Not my favorite cd but worth getting if you don't mind the electronic elements present in the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars KC, Power Indeed July 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
The album that gave me back the power to believe in KC. Much heavier, more emotional and fun than their previous album Construction of Light, The Power to Believe is the hardest hitting album from Crimson since Red and their best studio album since Discipline from 1981.
The album starts with a beautiful processed accapella version of "The Power to Believe." Reiterated in different forms throughout the album, TPTB acts as a unifying theme not unlike "Peace" on In the Wake of Posiedon, KC's second album. Then CRUNCH! The instrumental "Level Five" pastes your ears back with blasts of avant-math-metal. The third number "Eyes Wide Open" is a bitterweet "pop" song about missed oportunities by Adrian Belew and is one of the best songs on the CD. The ending coda is especially emotionaly charged and uplifting. If radio weren't so market researched/preprogrammed these days I'd say it could be a hit.
Heavy and dark, Level Five recalls the album Red, but thats not the only nod to the past on this album. Others songs bring to mind Starless and Bible Black or Discipline era material. "Dangerous Curves" sounds like an electronica influenced conflation of "The Talking Drum" from Larks Tongue in Aspic and "Mars" also from In The Wake of Posiedon. Robert Fripps guitar playing recalls and updates styles he's used throughout his history in Crimson: from fast unison lines, avant-metal, to soundscape electronica, etc... But rather than merely aping the past, Fripp and company have made "The Power To Believe" both a culmination of everything that made past Crimson great, and a step forward.
The playing on TPTB is confident and adventurous.

All I can say is "I want MORE!!" You will too once you have come to appreciate the creation of these masters of their trade.
Strange thing is that this album sounds very little like any of the band's other albums(maybe not such a strange thing for this band). Least of all does it sound like their previous effort, The ConstruKction of Light. You might say, however, that The Power To Believe sounds like _All_ of their past successes. Some of the songs could be compared with other songs they've done. For instance, "Eyes Wide Open" is along the same line of reasoning as were THRAK's "Walking On Air" and "One Time," but does not sound much like those songs at all. Instead, "Eyes Wide Open" is just enough less quiet that is fits with the controlled mayhem of the rest of this masterwork. "Level Five" and "Elektrik" are both awesomely complex instrumentals that both have a flavor of almost each of their most successful instrmentals to date. That, however, is where the similarities stop. "The Facts of Life" and "Happy With etc.." are something different, almost likening to the effect the song "People" had on the album THRAK, but these are infinitely heavier than "People." All the tracks titled: "Power To Believe I, II, II and IV" are from (or based on) a live performance in 1997 which was almost entirely improvisational. The jarring moments and improvisational harmony of these tracks add greatly to the overall feel of this album which is very brooding and, not to use part of the album's own name, but... _Powerful_, mightily powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thou Dost Believe! May 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best King Crimson album since Red. Unlike other album efforts since the mid seventies, this album works as a cohesive whole. It's a 45-minute journey into chaos, destruction, Armageddon and ultimately redemption. Drummer Pat Mastellato is a mad scientist who uses trick effects and bone shattering power to drive things forward. Rush's Neil Peart and Led Zeppelin's John Bonham definitely come to mind. But he is in no way derivative and can back up his special effects with power and technique. Once I've recovered from this album, I'm looking forward to viewing the double DVD live set.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Art Music Masterpiece March 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is not only the greatest King Crimson record, but also may be one of the greatest records in modern music period, IMHO. It is a concept album and the music challenge the listners. My friend who is a classical music fan was blown away by listening experience of this album. If you are looking for top 40 hits, catchy hooks, or simple three chords ditty, this album or King Crimson may not be for you. But anyone who says "I love music," needs to listen to this album. It will be an experience.
Some listening advice; Do not play this album as a background music, or do not try to dace to it at parties. The best way to appreciate it is sit down in front of your CD player/speakers, make sure there is no distraction, and play the album. Actively listen, concentrate, study it, play the air drums (if you can keep up with the beasty Pat Mastelotto that is!), and do not stop or leave in the middle of the music or CD but listen to the entire album, from start to finish. After that go to your computer and check the website discipline global mobile(record label of King Crimson and other cool artists established by Robert Fripp, [...] ) and learn more.
