2 stars I remember buying this for 1.49 when it first came out and felt they'd given their public a discount due to the atrocious sound quality. It really was worth a lot more than this debause of one contribution - Mel Collins. I'm a great lover of the saxophone both in a rock, jazz and fusion context and Mel Collins, particularly on Groon, shows what a great virtuoso exponent of the sax he really is. Where he went to or who he ended up with I don't really know - he just exemplied the unfortunate here today...gone tomorrow apprenticeship great musicians serve with King Crimson. Schizoid Man really lacks the excellent drumming that was apparent and omnipresent on the Court of - though having said that the guitar solo by Fripp is excellent....and that was it from Fripp. Bar a few riffs on Groon he'd didn't really feature on Earthbound. But Mel Collins made up for it. If you like saxaphone and are prepared with indifferent sound quality give Earthbound a listen.
