Utterly unique. This album just oozes raw power; some of the buildups, crescendos and instrumental parts are really astounding, with the help of the grandeur of the mellotron. Amazing, especially for 1969!

I can't believe this album will be turning 50 soon. Still feels ahead of its time. Absolute masterpiece

I can't even start describing the impact that this album has (had) on me. This record, Pink Floyd and Rush stuff is what introduced me to prog. It broadened my musical taste (I started being interested in albums that weren't just pure rock), made me realise that not all music that's good is verse-chorus-verse, and that many great albums are under the radar. A game changer and a life changer, at least for me

Each track is extremely beautiful and very innovative. One of the best albums of the 60s, if not all time.

This one was waaayyyy ahead of its time. Great prog album that set an impossibly bar for all other bands, including later efforts by King Crimson themselves, to try to match.

Relistening to this album for its been a while, I think I love it more than I did before. Right when the lyrics start on Epitaph, i want to cry like a sadboi :(. I guess the best thing about Prog albums is that the less amount of songs make time for these songs to be perfect. Song Avg. 94%..Might consider to give a 100 and put further up in my chart.

21st Century Schizoid Man should be in museums. It should be preserved as the greatest treasure of humanity. No piece of music from any era of music comes close.
