King Crimson: Larks' Tongues In Aspic (Island).

Ian MacDonald, New Musical Express, 10 March 1973

A NICE RECORD of pleasant, middle-of-the-road music which should prove a great favourite with everybody's mum and dad this Easter. Bill Bruford's whistling has improved out of all recognition and Robert Fripp's Gregorian Chant renditition of 'I Did It My Way' cuts Joaquin Des Prez's original stone dead.

Total word count of piece: 722
