For me, the power to believe is the winner far and away. A truly heavy album and my 3rd favorite crimson album after court and red

Thrak is the winner for me.  One of my favorite KC albums, yet unfortunately not very well like by most, but probably one of their most influential albums.

The Power to Believe! The other two are ok I guess, but not at the same level as The Power to Believe.

The Power To Believe is IMO more than a level up comparing those two others. So it gets my vote without a slight hesitation. It's great record on par with some of KC 70's works.

I really need to get TPTB again. I remember thinking the first track on it sounded like the previous album and what they had already done but the rest of it was really good.

The Power to Believe from these three, but probably my least favourite KC albums and also my least played.

ConstruKtion of Light I just couldn't get into and THRAK gives me a pounding headache

^ Not for me. I only had that album briefly. For one thing some of the lyrics rubbed me the wrong way(I'm not going to get into that here though). I will probably get it again at some point just to have it in my collection though.

The Power to Believe is a stunner.
All three are tremendous albums, really. With the new Heaven + Earth box in the house, I've got this period on fairly constant rotation these days. Loved Thrak and PtB when they both came out, but I'm only now really starting to truly appreciate CoL (or ReCoL) now.

Thrak is great. I have some more problems with the other two. Need to be in the mood, but anyway, they come across as somewhat cold to me.

Thrak for me...
He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me -- John Barrymore

I like Thrak and Power to Believe equally, but I'll give Thrak the vote, as it needs them!

Construktion of Light never done much for me.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Thrak is a throwback to the Wetton-era Crimson and owes much to LTIA
TCOL is more akin to the 80's Crimson, which was never my thing
 
TPTB, despite the small title tracks evoking Poseidon's Peace themes, is probably a return to Burell/Wallace era.
