3 stars King Crimson - 'Three of a Perfect Pair' 3 stars

Beat part two.

I find this to be slightly better than the horrific 'Beat' before it. There is still a pop element that just isn't working with this line-up. However, the band did redeem themselves, because this album does contain a few good selection of tracks, and another Larks' Tongue, but it isn't what the first two were.

If you are a fan of the Crimson 80's work then you should get this after the amazing 'Discipline' album. I would recommend works from any other period before picking up the rest of the 80's trilogy, which includes this album and 'Beat'.
