Upon its release in 1984, Three of a Perfect Pair caused some unrest among fans of King Crimson. Most of their audience felt that the band had made a conscious and obvious decision to try to break through to a more mainstream pop audience. But in hindsight, this is hardly the case; it sounds unlike anything that was out at the time. Like 1982's Beat, Three of a Perfect Pair doesn't quite meet the high standards set by 1981's Discipline, but does contain a few Crimson treats.
Three of a Perfect Pair is the tenth studio album by English band King Crimson, released in March 1984 by record label . Trouser Press described the record as a most disjunct album from a band that prided itself on carefully matched contradictions. The Left Side sports four of Adrian Belew’s poorer songs and a self-derivative instrumental; the flip is nearly all-instrumental, nearly free-form, nearly brilliant. Apparently, the Frippressive "discipline that forged the critically acclaimed pop/art synthesis of the first two latter-day Crimson albums is not a permanent condition
