King Crimson - The Power To Believe (2003)

The 15th album from this British band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, programming, warr bass, warr guitars, guitars and vocals. 

After several left-field very eclectic experimental albums, the band reigned themselves in and changed course.

.... Slightly....

You still have the trademark Fripp guitars here and the restless eclectic energy.

But there is some very melodic stuff on the title track, which is split into five parts and scattered around the album.

This album is much more melodic than expected from this band. It is more melodic and accessible than they have been for a very long time.

The music is still very eclectic and indeed..... very King Crimson.

The quality is good throughout this album. It is still a pretty odd album in their discography because of the title track. 

Check out this album.
