Larks' Tongues In Aspic at 50

2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of "Larks' Tongues in Aspic", the fifth studio album by the English progressive rock group King Crimson. This album marked 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 became a key album in the band's evolution, drawing on Eastern European classical music and European free improvisation as central influences.
