4 stars Starless and bible black is a great king crimson album. It really captures the experimental side of the group at that time. Several of the tracks are seemingly spontaneous, but in an interesting way. The first track is loud and obnoxious, catapulting the listener right into the album. After that, the lights dim for the tale of a jaded rockstar. Soon, the lights give way to darkness...and black. Some very dark music here. You'll find yourself in some very sinister music, very dark, very cool! It's a very 'journey to the unknown' type album. One slight problem is a couple of abrupt endings to songs. Those are easily ignored though. This isn't quite as good as larks' tongues though, but it's definitly essential to any crimson discography. Not a good starting point to hear crimson, but a fine album nonetheless. I give it 4 stars, only because it's good, but i've heard better from them.
