3 stars NOT AS GOOD AS "LARKS TONGUES IN ASPIC" and "RED", BUT GOOD

"Starless and Bible Black"is the disc of counterpoint between the frenzy of experimentation and "Larks ..." and the sound of heavy and aggressive "Red". Of the eight tracks, only two were made in a studio (the first two). The rest are made live improvisations.

And these are two studio tracks that I like more. "The great deceiver" is quite heavy and interesting, with great vocals, but "Lament" is my preferred.Her begins where the other left off, an abrupt note, before between Fripp's guitar and lead us to the theme principal.After Wetton's vocals (I consider this album his best work on bass), the music enters a very dark section, but the best part is just that.

Then we come to improvisations.Personally only two are worth: "We'll Let You Know" and "Fracture". The others are forgettable.And i am boring in relation to the improvisations of the King Crimson (sorry, I do not I put up with songs like "Moonchild","The Talking Drum" or "Providence"), then I like to at least two must be very good because they are the same (or at least that's what I think).

Well, overall this album is a somewhat confusing, and is the weakest part of this trilogy of albums from KC, but it's better than I expected.
