Throughout the 1990s, King Crimson experimented with a wide variety of sounds. The band released more albums in ten years than in the rest of their career, a unique case for a seventies band. Nevertheless, this profusion of experimental records has often left us perplexed, giving us the impression that we are dealing with trials and tribulations rather than a finished work. 

The first two tracks of "The Power To Believe" bring us into a new era in the history of King Crimson. If the messy experimentation is absent, the skinned, sophisticated, radically modern sound remains intact. Fripp seems to have found his new team at last, and it finally sounds mature.

With the virtuoso mastery of 'Eyes wide open' and the dangerous emotion of the four parts of the eponymous song, King Crimson is closer than ever to its seventies inspirations. The many nods to the fans of the early days, especially in 'Facts of Life', do not deceive.

With its impeccable construction and raging sound, "The Power To Believe" is a coherent album without unnecessary digressions. Without a doubt, the best album of this legendary band since "Starless"...

MY RATING
 
 
OTHER REVIEWS
CLEPSYDRA: Fears (1997)
PROGRESSIVE ROCK - Simpler but catchier, Clepsydra's "Fears" is an album that will find its place in any good neo progressive rock library.
THRESHOLD: Clone (1998)
PROGRESSIVE METAL - Always anchored in a progressive metal where melody prevails over technicality, "Clone" proves to be a good entry point to discover Threshold.
