It seems that most prefer the second part of this song but I think that part one is quite possibly the greatest song that has ever been produced. Choose your fave.

Part One is brilliant. It's my favourite thing King Crimson has done.

Part 2 is just brilliant for me, so that's my choice. Part 1 is too disjointed. I don't know part 3. Part 4 is also great. And Level 5, which once I read was suposed to be part 5 is also wonderful.

I voted for Part 2, as I think it is one of the best prog songs ever composed & performed! 

However, I've also loved Part 1 since I first heard of it....this woman performed this rather remarkable tribute to LTIA Part 1, please listen!

Love pt 1 but pt 2 got my vote...especially if we're talking about the version on USA or the other '73/'74 live versions which are just so much more powerful than the studio version.

LTiA, Part I. Because when I first heard it, it actually sounded like a different direction in rock.

I need to listen to some of those live versions again... as far as I remember I liked the studio version better mainly because this is perhaps the song in which the duo of Bruford and Muir works the absolute best genious.

Part 1 hands down for me.

Part 1 is quite a grower, but I give the lead to part II.

The studio version is very cool too but in a different way for me.  There's more delicate interplay between BB and Muir (as you mentioned) and Wetton's bass (which is very clean and smooth).  Even Fripp & Cross are playing in quite a restrained fashion...seems like everyone is really paying attention to each other and purposely not jumping on top but playing as a team.  The USA and other live versions are just totally everyone turned up to 11 and bashing each other for instrumental supremacy like a sonic war.  Wetton's fuzz bass is just plain nasty and RF is playing in the heavy metal language that lead to the heaviness of Red.  

The studio version is like a swirling summer breeze where the live versions are like a stage 4 hurricane Wink
