Who needs Earthbound when the only cut that matters is here?
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Five versions (2 studio, 3 live). Is it repititious? Naaah, not with this classic song. Two reasons to get it, now that Epitaph is out (I got this well before then: One reason is for the version originally on Earthbound. It sounds nasty, the playing is bad, the sound is bad, but it cranks because of this. This is a song that especially works when its played as if in a garage. The other reason is for contrast, especially to show off to people unfamiliar with King Crimson. Just set the CD player for "music scan", and play the first 10 seconds of each version to see how this song just gets heavier over time."
GREATEST PROG ROCK SONG EVER????

"You know how you usually buy a cd just to get one good song? Well, with 21st Century Schizoid Man, you have one of the best prog rock tunes ever done. And here you have 6 different versions!!! If you like guitar - get this cd and learn the tune. You will be a better guitar player for it - i promis... Different vocalists are interesting to listen to. And study the stun chord - is it Cm??? Or something else??? The lead runs are amazing - in all versions. Buy it, you won't be sorry."
