4 stars A twisted revamping of sound, personnel, and direction makes "Lark's Tongues" a much more dynamic, powerful, and ultimately enjoyable album than anything else the band has done up to this point. Fripp actually PLAYS his guitar! There IS a rhythm section-- not just ham-fisted mellotrons screaming slow-paced chords in the background! This combined with Wetton's talking bass and enjoyable tenor voice makes this incarnation of KC one of the best, and makes "Lark's Tongues" one of the bands few essential classic albums.

A must for those interested in getting into King Crimson, and a better place to start than anything that came before it.
