Artist: King Crimson (www.king-crimson.com)
Title: The Power To Believe
Label: Sanctuary Records (www.sanctuaryrecordsgroup.com)
Genre: Rock/Progressive, Art

If you have The Power To Believe the music can take you anywhere. King Crimson comes roaring back with a studio album that is so strong that it will retell why they are considered to be one of the most exclusive and abundant groups to create progressive art rock.

Robert Fripp (guitar, vocals), Adrian Belew (guitar, vocals) Trey Gunn (warr guitars) and Pat Mastelotto (traps and buttons) are a lineup that still commands respect from their peers while captivating music listeners worldwide.

"Eyes Wide Open" demonstrates their ability to mix up the aspects of pop and rock into their sound and step away from the intense musical compositions they are famous for, and then in the same instance switch right back to what they do best like the odd time signatures prevalent in tracks like "Elektrik." The title track is a four part suite starting with the 44 second "A Capella" building into a full mind expanding musical journey right through to the fourth and last track "Coda," which is a live cut. Although "Level Five" indicates a numerical sequence, I can tell you that there are many different levels of musical consciousness attained listening to the complex rhythms and the timing in songs such as this. I cannot imagine being a drummer in a band like this; I think I would be waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat.

This incredibly intricate and intelligent music says to you…listen to me over and over to understand me. I have no problem with that because I love it. Per usual the cover of the CD is as thought provoking as the music itself. This recording is another triumphant return to the top for King Crimson.

1. The Power to Believe I: A Cappella - 0:44
2. Level Five - 7:17
3. Eyes Wide Open - 4:08
4. Elektrik- 7:59
5. Facts of Life (Intro) - 1:38
6. Facts of Life - 5:05
7. The Power to Believe II - 7:43
8. Dangerous Curves - 6:42
9. Happy With What You Have to Be Happy With - 3:17
10. The Power to Believe III - 4:09
11. The Power to Believe IV: Coda (live) - 2:29
