5 stars Its one of the most difficult albums to rate and an interesting classic to explore. Lark sounds completely different from its previous KC album Islands and from this point on, Fripp starts sounding quite "hard"-- that is much harder than before. In many ways Larks and its follow up two albums Red and Starless have similarities of sounds-- though Lark's soundscape can be distinguished by Muir's percussion. The opening track stimulates vision of a dark and hard journey to me. and this is a non-tiring highly experimental piece while the ending track Lark-2 is much more organised and as interesting as Red it self. The album's other instrumental talking drums starts off very mildly and slowly turns very hard. the remaining three pieces are songs-- which are not very remarkable, but not bad.
Sharier | 5/5 |
