Oh Lord, I love The Power to Believe by King Crimson!!

I just sort of re-discovered it. Does anyone have any fun stories about this album, or observations about it?

I think it would be awesome to be a teenager again and make out to "level 5" whilst under the influence of something.

lol

anyway....brilliant stuff.

If it turns out to be King Crimson's last, they finished it all off well. Approve

@Nick Dilley, You wish you were a teenager making out with another teenager to The Power to Believe? Have you had a disappointing life or something, my friend?

Amazing album indeed !  To these ears, it easily ranks in my top 5 KC albums.
Sorry though, no salacious tales to tell in relation to it ! Embarrassed

I'm with you. It's one of my favorite King Crimson albums. There's just something special about it. But then again, there's something special with every King Crimson album. Oh well, I'm just a fanboy.

Ha ha, no, not at allEmbarrassed. I don't know why, but when level five came on, I was wondering what kind of whacky make out session it would be with that soundtrack. haha. Anyway, I was already out of my teens when this album came out. just some creative thinking, lol.

Easily my favourite Belew album. I discovered the post-90's KC quite recently and was very pleasantly surprised by both this one and The ConstruKction of Light, although Power to Believe has more coherence.

A good album, though I'm in the minority that prefers The Construkction of Light.

Big fan of this one. The instrumentals on it are among their best tracks in my book. My favorite is Elektrik. Think I'm gonna go listen to it now! Smile

Instead of 5-star, it's Level 5 . . .

Love this album too, beginning with Level 5. Indeed, my favourite album since the 70's, and like it better than some 70's albums too.

Terrific album, a fitting end to Crimson. I didn't get the chance to see them before 2000 but I saw them three times across the Construkction & TPTB tours. Wonderful wonderful memories, I was absolutely transfixed see one of my favorite bands and hearing tracks like Red, LTiA and the like live.

No there isn't. If you are referring to Fripp-Collins-Jacko it's not a KC album it's a Projekct.

After not buying a Crimson album in 15+ years I got TCoL a few months ago.  Will have to get TPTB the next time I see it.
