4 stars Dream Theater's cover of King Crimson's 1973 instrumental Larks Tongues In Aspic, Pt. 2 is the fifth and final cover that the band released in the build up to their tenth album 'Black Clouds & Silver Linings'. This must surely be a delight to prog fans everywhere. Without King Crimson, prog rock probably wouldn't exist as it does today. The North American fivesome (minus LaBrie of course) pay tribute to the pioneers of prog by playing one of their heaviest songs. This dark, complex instrumental is covered superbly by the prog metal masters. Little details are even included, such as hearing a whistle blow at 1:35 and letting the instruments ring for 30 seconds at the end of the song. To be honest, it was tracks like this that predicted the future of heavy metal back in the 70s, and it's amazing to see just how right King Crimson got it.
