Prog, Pop, & Avant Garde - What Else Would You Expect?
With the lineup of Robert Fripp, Tony Levin, Adrian Belew, & Bill Bruford, Three of a Perfect Pair contains one of the most impressive lineups of musicians ever assembled. Whereas other progressive rock bands such as Genesis and Yes became more pop/AOR-oriented in the early 80s, King Crimson were still making music that was very hard to categorize. "Dig Me" is about as "out there" as you can get and the instrumental, "Nuages", is a combination of subtle percussion and ambient guitar textures that sounds like it could come out of the third side of Tales from Topographic Oceans. However, King Crimson does show their more melodic and "song-oriented" side on the title track, "Model Man", and "Man With An Open Heart." Belew's vocals are very reminiscent of David Byrne's work with Talking Heads. The bass extravaganza "Sleepless" never gets old and is a showcase for the powerful rhythm section of Bruford and Levin. Recommended not only to prog and King Crimson fans, but also to fans of 80s New Wave who prefer their music with a little bit of an edge.

The studio version is the only instance I can think of in which the ultra-rare Simmons electronic hi-hat was used, and to good effect..

watching them perform live is always impressive
