King Crimson - Three Of A Perfect Pair (1984)
The tenth album from this British band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of Chapman stick, bass, drums, percussion, synth, guitars and vocals.
Robert Fripp is at it again with the 1980s version of King Crimson.
This version of King Crimson is even more eclectic music dominated than the 1970s version of the same band.
The album opens with the melodic, still pretty eclectic title track.
The album then feature another melodic song in the shape of Model Man before the album slides towards avant-garde before a strange tribute to Lark's Tongue In Aspics closes the album.
A forty-two minutes long album no less.
An album focused on the instruments and not necessary on melodies.
The album is a bit incoherent at times.
There is a lot of good pieces here too and King Crimson is what they are. Or what Robert Fripp is.
This is a decent to good album but nothing more than that.
