4 stars The previous larks tongue was the start of the real metal,jazzy side of King Crimson. And Starless and Bible Black is the second album of the Wetton era. Many reviews i read thought this was a let down after the great Larks Tongues in Aspic. But King Crimson always do something different from the last album. It seems with this lineup Fripp wanted to give Crimson a more experimental metal sound, and did it turn out great. Some of my favorites on this album are Lament which is more mellow crimson track with delicate vocals from wetton. Other faves are Trio, The night Watch, are all kind of similar to each other. The last two tracks are the highlights of the album, Starless and Bible Black , and Fracture. Two heavy Crimson tracks with great guitar work from Robert Fripp. Another good King Crimson album, this was the best lineup of crimson in my book. This era of King Crimson has had a big influence on bands like The Mars Volta and TOOL. 4 stars for Starless and Bible Bible, a good follow up to larks tongue, not a masterpiece
