Larks Tongues in Aspic is not as highly regarded in the King Crimson catalog as say, In the Court of Crimson King or Red, but it's a classic nonetheless. While not as impact full on first listen as those two previously mentioned albums, Larks Tongues is a highly developed album that is probably the jazziest the group ever released. Bill Bruford in particular shine,s as each song is developed, with odd time signatures galore, and Bruford keeps the group from running off the rails. Guitar playing from Fripp is fantastic as usual, and Cross's violin is strange and riveting. A great album for anybody who wants to listen to something out of the ordinary. Personally, the song Book of Saturday, the only "pop" song on the album, is one of the most beautiful tracks I've ever heard, and "Exiles" and "Easy Money" are masterpieces. I highly recommend this album!
