2 stars Pop prog, and other adventures of KC's years in the 80's.

Three of a Perfect Pair closes what I would consider the KC side project. The band altered their direction and sound, although they had not lost their abilities (as would be seen again in the 90's). I consider the first of this output to be the best, and Beat the cellar of all King Crimson works. This album continues in a similar fashion to Beat, but it redeems itself towards the end. However, Lt Pt 3 is my least favorite of the Larks Tongues renditions.

I guess a shining moment from this set of outputs would be the amazing find of Adrian Belew and his talents and idiosyncrasies, which matched up quite well with Fripp, even if the two had vastly different styles and approaches to composition. In short, I'd look at the 80's catalog after you have all the other KC material, except for Discipline, which is quite good with the 80's effects. That being said, prog on. King Crimson would come back with a vengeance on some of their 90's and 00's material.
