$65.00 Inc. GST

Larks’ Tongues in Aspicย is the fifth studio album by the English progressive rock group King Crimson, released on 23 March 1973 through Island Records in the UK and Atlantic Records in the United States and Canada. This album is the debut of King Crimson’s third incarnation, featuring co-founder and guitarist Robert Fripp along with four new members: bass guitarist and vocalist John Wetton, violinist and keyboardist David Cross, percussionist Jamie Muir, and drummer Bill Bruford. It is a key album in the band’s evolution, drawing on Eastern European classical music and European free improvisation as central influences.

In his contemporary review, Alan Niester of Rolling Stone summarized the album saying “You can’t dance to it, can’t keep a beat to it, and it doesn’t even make good background music for washing the dishes” and recommended listeners to “approach it with a completely open mind.” He described the songs on the album saying that they were “a total study in contrasts, especially in moods and temposโ€”blazing and electric one moment, soft and intricate the next.” While not fully appreciative of the music on the record, he complimented the violin playing as “tasteful […] in the best classical tradition.”
