5 stars One of my more recent discovories, I loved this album almost from the start.

The key was, being in a altered state of mind on the first listen.

Anyway, Bruford had joined, KC was looking to make a comeback after Islands, and suceeded wonderfully with Larks Tongues in Aspic. The addition of David Cross on violin added a new dimension to the band, and it fits in very nicely with the two other maniacs in the band, Jamie Muir and of course, Fripp.

Muir's one and only album with KC, he contributed to the atmosphere of peices like The Talking Drum and Lark's Tongues in Aspic Part One. Word on the street is, he retired to a monastery and was never seen in the music world again. Strange..

The three wetton compositions are te most accesible and introductorily enjoyable, Book of Saturday is a warm vocal peice, Exiles has some nice soaring vocals, and Easy Money is a highlight.

The other peices are manical songs of deep greatness, insane violin work, crushing guitar riffs, its all there. King Crimson's best, in my opinion.

OGTL | 5/5 |
