5 stars I think carefully before giving 5 stars to any album but this deserves it; their best work. The line up was for me their best; Fripp clearly established as leader now; Bruford arriving from Yes; John Wetton with his rough voice and fuzz bass; David Cross on violin, and the eccentric Jamie Muir, banging all manner of things. The way "Talking Drum", with simply my favourite bass line of all time, develops and explodes into "Larks Tongues II" is stupendous, and also worth checking out live on numerous Crimso recordings, especially "The Night Watch".

Phil | 5/5 |
