9/10 craig hudson Customer review, 26th July 2014

The title track - the opener - is an album's worth of genre-bending stylings and thorough musical control. It builds from a distant percussive murmur to become a riff worthy enough to impress most 70s metalheads. Beyond that initial six minute burst things get funky, melancholic with the introduction of violin, and then the restraint returns. Really, this album is worth it just for this track alone... in a "one song forever on a deserted island" kind of way. Other album highlights include the production and percussive drumming on "The Talking Drum", and the lazy blues feel of "Easy Money". The five tracks outside of the brilliant opener are some of the most conventional rock songs King Crimson have recorded, however, as always they approach the conventional in most unconventional ways. In my opinion, "Larks Tongues..." is the perfect introduction to King Crimson, and their most satisfying album in a discography that has many high points.
