3 stars Review #33

"Three of a perfect pair" is probably the album of KING CRIMSON that I like the less. The band continued with the New-Wave/Post-Punk sound we can find in the previous two albums but with less interesting songs.

The opening song and "Sleepless" are maybe the most moving songs in the album. The B-side (also called the Right Side) is mainly instrumental but with songs clearly not as good as the ones on their other albums, but rather slow and kind of boring songs. "Model man" is a nice ballad song but is not as moving as "Matte kudasai" or "Heartbeat"; even the third part of "Larks' tongues in aspic" (which I don't understand how they dared to call that), is slow and not very interesting.

The album is not bad per se; it's just not amazing either. I love the red one and the blue one, but the yellow not so much.
