#274 King Crimson – Larks’ Tongues in Aspic

Larks’ Tongues in Aspic is the fifth studio of King Crimson. This is a band I have heard of their name, but not their music. I have heard more about and from consistent member Robert Fripp. This album moves the band’s evolution into Eastern European classical music and European free improvisation. Many consider them key to the progressive rock sound, but they distance themselves from the genre.

After listening to “Larks’ Tongues in Aspic, Part One“, I thought it was an instrumental band. I like them without vocals. The music is great and creative. I can hear how Yes and King Crimson are influential to prog rock.

I heard most of the album on YouTube because it is not on Spotify. Technically, it is not on YouTube either. I had to listen to a lot of live version. It was not good. They sounded better recorded than live. 4/10.
