Larks' Tongues In Aspic is a music studio album recording by KING CRIMSON (Eclectic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette.
The latest in the King Crimson 40th anniversary remixes from Professor Steven Wilson’s laboratory is their 1973 opus Larks’ Tongues In Aspic, which marked the debut on vinyl of the core line up, that, in my opinion was the most adventurous of all the line ups of the band and with this album, 1974′s Starless And Bible. Black and Red they gave us three albums unsurpassed in musical adventure and envelope pushing. Listening to the 5:1 mix on the DVD is like discovering a completely new KC album, or to put it another way, it’s like listening to LTIA after an ear syringing with a firehose. LTIA, Part One was never one of my most returned to KC tracks as it had the air of, well not filler exactly, but it seemed like a good idea stretched too thin; well, now I understand; the tension created in those first 3 minutes is the perfect foil for John Wetton’s monstrous wah-bass and Fripp’s mekanik riffing.
