In the days of In the Court of, nobody did schizo-rock better than King Crimson. I remember "21st Century Schzoid Man" and thinking just how deranged Pete Sinfield and Robert Fripp might be.
Then I heard Earthbound and I'm not thinking that any more. Sinfield went a long time age and Fripp's been listening to Edwin Start and recruited three blokes to produce an [unclear: lp] of horny bad-ass jazz.
"21st Century Schzoid Man" is here and amid the other half hour of foot-Stomping tedium, it's good to hear. The title track side-steps clumsily from Boz on vocals (like Little Richard on CNS depressants) to Fripp on middling guitar, The rest is a filthy mess of Edwin Starr soul and 4/4 rock with Mel Collins featured far too heavily on saophones.
Things have changed now and Fripp's back with a new band and a new album — possibly a vengance. To cover up for one very earbound mistake.
