5 stars The best album of King Crimson's catologe.

Reduced to the three peice band, King Crimson decided to reinvent their style by bringing a former YES drummer, expirimenting with other sounds, and heavy up their music a little bit. The result? A classic underrated album which stands out the most in their discography. "Lark's Tongues In Apic Part 1" starts off with some jugle beats, before a dark violin kicks off and the Heavy guitar tone from Robert Fripp comming up, and then.... BOOM! This heavy catchy tune starts, not without adding some machine-like drums. After that part, it moves in to an atonal jam interlude (courtesy of Robert Fripp). Once it'over, the distorted guitar is replaced by the crisp, clean guitar challenging the machine drum. The ending ends with a soothing violin. Other songs such as "Exiles", "Book of Saturday", and "Easy Money" are not too bad either. But the two-part title tracks are the leading role of this album, with "Larks' Tongues In Aspic Part 2" finishing off where the part 1 started. With heavy metal style distorted riffs, ecentric bass lines, and the machine-like drums!

Well, that's all my time and gotta say overall, that Larks' Tongues In Aspic is great great GREAT record, with very interesting progressive songs, so be sure to listen to this album. Bye!
