5 stars Is King Crimson dead ? NO !!! Fripp and his band is back, and better than ever.

Larks' Tongues In Aspic represents the first major change in Crimson's carrer. And the best one because they are closer to Black Sabbath and Mahavishnu Orchestra than to their symphonic roots. They became darker, heavier and had more balls than in Islands. Bill Bruford left Yes, John Wetton left Family, David Cross began his carrer and Jamie Muir began to find all sorts of percussion. Why ? Because they all wanted to join King Crimson. They made a good decision. Robert Fripp finally assembled the band of his dreams and they made their best album since their iconic debut.

My Grade: A
