3 stars I really tried to love this album, as ITCOTCK and Lizard were revelations to me, but I cannot stop pressing the fast forward button. Too much melodic percussion, too many uninspired impovisations, too many and long smooth parts, the cacophony moments of the violin, the struggle of Wetton to stay in tune. I find Lark's Tongues I, Exiles, Easy Money and Talking Drum unnecessary long. Lark's Tongues II is a magnificent piece, although I would prefer it with shorter soft passages, with less melodic (random?) percussion and with a less annoying violin solo sound, but to my humble opinion, it cannot take the whole of the album on its shoulders. I would say that this LP sounds like a brain-storming rehearsal for something more cohesive in the future: Red maybe...
