Larks' Tongues in Aspic [40th Anniversary]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
King Crimson reborn yet again -- the newly configured band makes its debut with a violin courtesy of David Cross sharing center stage with Robert Fripp's guitars and his Mellotron, which is pushed into the background. The music is the most experimental of Fripp's career up to this time -- though some of it actually dated in embryonic form back to the tail end of the Boz Burrell-Ian Wallace-Mel Collins lineup.

King Crimson reborn yet again -- the newly configured band makes its debut with a violin courtesy of David Cross sharing center stage with Robert Fripp's guitars and his Mellotron, which is pushed into the background. The music is the most experimental of Fripp's career up to this time -- though some of it actually dated in embryonic form back to the tail end of the Boz Burrell-Ian Wallace-Mel Collins lineup. And John Wetton was the group's strongest singer/bassist since Greg Lake's departure three years earlier. What's more, this lineup quickly established itself as a powerful performing unit working in a more purely experimental, less jazz-oriented vein than its immediate predecessor. "Outer Limits music" was how one reviewer referred to it, mixing Cross' demonic fiddling with shrieking electronics, Bill Bruford's astounding dexterity at the drum kit, Jamie Muir's melodic and usually understated percussion, Wetton's thundering yet melodic bass, and Fripp's guitar, which generated sounds ranging from traditional classical and soft pop-jazz licks to hair-curling electric flourishes. [A 40th Anniversary Edition released in 2012 comprised a CD/DVD with 38 tracks .]
