King Crimson

The Power to Believe is a magnificently laced together album that reaches out beyond King Crimson's die hard followers. The eleven tracks were recorded at Nashville's Tracking Room in the summer of 2002. This version of King Crimson includes: Adrian Belew (guitars and vocals), Robert Fripp (guitars), Trey Gunn (Warr guitar, rubber bass, fretless Warr guitar) and Pat Mastelotto (drums). The album is extraordinary and possibly more enjoyable than their previous works, including the "Projekcts" and "Construkction" series. I still remember King Crimson's waterlogged concert at Place des Nations, over twenty years ago.  Although the torrential downpour sent a few fans home early, the band played o­n, several soggy bodies lay o­n the asphalt with "Eyes Wide Open" and with smiles from ear to ear.  Back then the band evoked an indescribable dream like state of mind unlike any other music I had ever heard before and this, without the use of hallucinogens. King Crimson's direction has not changed, they are still o­n the edge, taking chances and trying to create something magical.
