4 stars I love every single second of this album. Larks' Tongues in Aspic is one of my favourite progressive rock albums there is. With this record King Crimson experimented with a slightly more harder sound. This is often called as their heaviest album and it's no surprise. Especially the opener and the closing track have some very heavy parts here and there.

But even if the sound is a bit heavier than usually the songs are still delivered with the classic King Crimson style and class. There are six songs in here and three of those are instrumentals with a huge leaning towards both jazz fusion and experimental rock. There is no point in trying to pick up some highlights here because the album works best as a whole damn thing.

While this ain't as famous album as their ground breaking debut is I think this is just as great musically. This album has everything a progressive rock fanatic could want from the high class instrumental work to beautiful melodies and mighty/epic sounds. This album has it all and in my opinion almost totally flawless.
