UK, 1973, progressive rock
King Crimson – Larks’ Tongues in Aspic: I always feel like King Crimson are masters at story-building. Not telling. Building. Each part of each song is a meticulous structure deliberately constructed, creating a sonic story. Also, and this may just be me, but parts of this album, like “The Talking Drum”, sound like post-rock before post-rock was a recognized genre, and in this interludes it feels like Crimson is building a prelude to the story that comes in the more standard progressive rock moments of the album.
