3 stars It's better to be charged with this album. There's almost nothing in common with KC original and typical sound. "Three of a Perfect Pair"confirms a new musical direction taken by the band, closer to the 80s spirit. So we can hear a lot of electronic drummings parts, slap bass guitars...However don't be disconcerted, it remains prog despite that it shows us a more alternative pop and synthetic side of KC's music. In the track "Nuages" we come back to Fripp original and touching guitar style. A calm and mysterious piece... Also a great mention to Adrian Belew harmonised and groovy vocals. "Three of a perfect Pair" is not essential and not the first you need to listen to for a first approach to KC's musical creativity but a recommended album for the band's lovers.
