277 of 1001 Albums: King Crimson’s Larks Tongues in Aspic

The fifth album from the rock band, King Crimson, was released in 1973. Bill Buford was added to the lineup after leaving Yes because he felt King Crimson was a better choice for his music style. Lots of jazz influences were incorporated including a few strings that added to the progressive rock sound. The reviews for the album were overwhelmingly positive. 
My Thoughts
While King Crimson explores more of what they are capable with this in this album I don’t think I’ll ever be quite the King Crimson fan, or really any progressive rock fan for that matter. This album does have a lot of interesting mixes on it though like the jazz, and strings fused into rock. “Book of Saturday” was one of the more memorable songs that I listened to that I enjoyed hearing.
