5 stars inconsistency was the synonym for the band King Crimson talking about lineups, a lot of changes of people coming and going in just few years being Bob Fripp the only element which remained at all times. 1973 saw the discovery of David Cross, a talented violinist by Robert Fripp who immediatley invited him to join the new King Crimson force. Bill Brufford was seeking for musical adventures and found in the Crimsons what he was looking for. John Wetton had just departed from Family and was looking for a band, and Fripp for a bass guitarist and a singer, Wetton had the two of them. Jimmy Muir was the strange element in the band adding all kinds of sounds and percussions to the songs, something that nowadays it's very easy to substitute with computer programs. Larks' Tongues in Aspic, marked the beginning of a new Crimson era, and the one that would establish a trademark in the sound that would continue to our days. Definitely one of the best albums of the era, it was just surpassed by The Dark Side of the Moon, which talks about the great success of this album by the critics. It is quite obvious why this album should be considered at the top ... but wait a second, the best was yet to arrive!
