5 stars Three Of A Perfect Pair is in my opinion the best album of King Crimson's '80s material. It's of average length, but it divided into two halves; the first half is made of tracks that are more conventional and the second half is very experimental tracks. I love both halves. This album marks when King Crimson has found out how to use the sounds of the '80s to their own creative advantage. The first half is basically progressive pop-rock songs with slight avant-garde touches that are at first barely noticeable, but become more apparent after multiple listens. The second half is mostly dissonant and experimental instrumental tracks utilizing tons of electronic effects that most people would find to be a turn off. This is not beginner material and can come off as quite off-putting if you're not expecting this sort of experimental sound. Truly a masterpiece of exceptional King Crimson quality and the best of their '80s material.

Highly, highly recommended!
