Larks' Tongues in Aspic is the fifth studio album by the English progressive rock group King Crimson, released on 23 March 1973 through Island Records. This album is the debut of King Crimson's fifth incarnation, featuring original member and guitarist Robert Fripp and new members John Wetton (vocals, bass), David Cross (violin, Mellotron), Jamie Muir (percussion), and Bill Bruford (drums).

Progressive Rock legend King Crimson, feat. Robert Fripp (guitar) and - at that time in lineup no. 3 - Bill Bruford on drums, live at the German Beat Club in autumn of 1972! The song "Larks's Tongues" is taken from the album by the same title, recently released in March 1973. It features influences of Heavy Metal, improvisation and complex structure - typically for King Crimson at early 1970s. The album is also the first part of a trilogy, followed by "Starless and Bible Black" and "Red" (both 1974).

Larks' Tongues in Aspic is the fifth studio album by the English progressive rock group King Crimson, originally released in 1973. This album is the debut of King Crimson’s third incarnation, featuring original member and guitarist Robert Fripp and new members John Wetton (vocals, bass guitar), David Cross (violin, Mellotron), Jamie Muir (percussion), and Bill Bruford (drums). It is also a key album in the band’s evolution, drawing on Eastern European classical music and European free improvisation as central influences. Larks’ Tongues in Aspic Q&A.

King Crimson reborn yet again - the then-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

Larks' Tongues in Aspic is a 1973 album by the British progressive rock group King Crimson. This album is the debut of King Crimson's third incarnation, and features original member and guitarist Robert Fripp and new members John Wetton (vocals, bass), David Cross (violin, mellotron), Jamie Muir (percussion), and Bill Bruford (drums), as well as lyricist Richard Palmer-James. The album sees the band incorporate into its sound violin and also various exotic percussion instruments, including sheet metal and mbiras.

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 LTIAafter 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.
