3 stars Three of a Perfect Pair represents a step up from Beat, but just one step. The focus by the band on this recording is more on atmospheric textures than it is on virtuosic or technically stunning play. Some of the more interesting moments come in the guitar line on "Sleepless" and in a number of moments during "Nuages", "Industry", "Dig Me" and "No Warning". "Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part Three" appears to be an unabashed attempt to capitalize on the name recognitiion of the legendary work from 1973 but without either the element of innovation or surprise present in the earlier work.
