Siberian Khatru never seemed out of place on the album to me... certainly not as out of place as (for example) Kings Of Speed on Hawkwind's Warrior On The Edge Of Time. Perhaps I'm biased because I prefer Siberian Khatru over And You And I. Also, I don't hear any disco in Siberian Khatru.
 
 
No, I know how to behave in the restaurant now, I don't tear at the meat with my hands. If I've become a man of the world somehow, that's not necessarily to say I'm a worldly man.

The song provides some variety to an otherwise very even album, and it's a great concert opener.

Pretty much rivals the title track in my mind. So many great Yes qualities in one song!

Siberian Snafu is sub-par in comparison to the other two compositions on CTTE. 
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

I agree, always thought it rivaled Close to the Edge. Especially in concert.

Great song. That does not mean the rest of the album is not great as well. 
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

A solid track but I definitely like the second half of the song better.....but it's not 'out of place' imo.
