5 stars First I didn't love this album (and this King Crimson era, the 80's), but now, even I'll never love this era more than the 1969-1974 era, I really love it. "Three Of A Perfect Pair" is as great as "Discipline", and much better than "Beat" (which is just good). One side is accessible, pop, perfect in this way ("Model Man", "Sleepless", and the very byrnian, talkingheadian "Man With An Open Heart"), the second side is better, and excessive, progressive, hard to get into ("No Warning", "Dig Me" which is terrifying, "Industry"). In its entirety, this is a cold, strange, hard album. Difficult to get into, but when you're in, it's truly fantastic. For me, the 80's version of "Starless And Bible Black".
