Three Friends is the (second) best of all the GG albums (behind Acquiring the Taste).

I have heard maybe two or three tracks of Three Friends, so in an attempt to be honest I won't vote, although Free Hand is one of my favourite GG albums.

Three Friends.  Free Hand is my least favorite of GG's middle period.

Really, Really tough for me. Have to go with Free Hand as it was my introduction to the band and got me hooked.

Free Hand is not the best GG album ever but I prefer it over Three Friends.
 
 
... how 'bout the evident assonance between the two titles? Was it intentional?

Both are awesome, but Free Hand really wins it for me.  Three Friends is SO close though.
