At some point, we become disillusioned by our heroes and stopped buying their albums automatically on release (especially when younger and vinyl was expensive).  At which point did this happen with Crimson (if, at all)?

None. I bought Itchycock second hand in the early 1980s and Islands a few years ago.

Hasn't happened yet, but there was a definite hint of disillusion on hearing the recent Live at the Orpheum album. I hate to think of KC as a nostalgia act...

I've never been disillusioned with/by King Crimson.

Stop buying KC? No way! The '80s quartet was awesome, too! Clap

In the Wake of Poseidon.

Didn't like it, haven't liked anything since, and I've gone right off the debut as well.

I don't know about the recent incarnations for live performances and live releases but the last studio album was still pretty impressive

Interesting - of all the polls of the big 6 in this series, it is clear that KC have held their fans' attention by not compromising.  In the early 80s, having lived through it, they did isolate some of their hard-core fans but with the possible exception of Genesis (for other reasons) they added to their audience.

Their early eighties output for me personally is the strongest run of three albums any band has ever produced (probably together with Talk Talk's last three) so having two of these albums proposed as reasons for ditching them (probably leaving out the third one implicitly assuming that by that time nobody was still on board) looks quite funny to me.

THRAK is the last studio album I bought, and Ladies of the Road the last live album.  I gave up on the Collector's Club with #10, entirely for budgetary reasons.  I wasn't wild about the quartet that started in 2000.  No Bruford.  No Levin.  An ex girlfriend eventually gave me both of their CDs, but I only listened a few times.  That was the first lineup of the band that I never felt motivated to see live (I'd seen every other lineup, since the beginning).  I've seen some YT clips of the new 3 drummer lineup, though, that cause me to regret skipping their last US tour.  I might well go see the next one.  My favorite lineup remains the Double Trio, followed by the Discipline quartet.

I got into King Crimson once they had already released "The Power to Believe", and didn't get them exactly in order, so it wouldn't work with me the "I stopped buying their albums at such point". I haven't got them all, but I think I have all their eras and most of their songs covered between studio and live albums. However, even though I do like albums/songs after that point, I would think the turning point for them would be after Red... perhaps they have been able to do the schizofrenic "Larks Tongues" thing several times since then, but they just haven't done something as beautiful as "Epitaph", "The Court of the Crimson King", "In the Wake of Poseidon", "Prince Rupert Awakes / Bolero", "Exiles", "Starless" since then. And in general they did have a change of sound when they entered the 80's.
