About Schizoid Man I absolutley agree, but with Exiles and Starless he might actually have sounded better. But for me, that's not particularly difficult, I really love those two songs, but Wetton's vocals rather put me a bit off... I guess the perfect choice, for me, for singing those two songs would have been Lake (weirdly enough, I like the way Wetton sings Schizoid Man better than the original version with Lake). However, back with Schizoid Man, I do feel Jon Anderson wouldn't have been very good singing that song, but he did sing on South Side of the Sky... so perhaps, just perhaps, he might have pulled out Schizoid Man nicely.

I'm glad he moved to Crimson, it's not like Yes fell apart after his departure, they still managed to create some great music. About Crimson they really pulled out an ace, together with Bruford they were really a force.

Here's an amusing little quote I found in the King Crimson article on TV Tropes:
 
"In Yes, there was an endless debate about should it be F natural in the bass with G sharp on top by the organ. In King Crimson... you were just supposed to know."  - Bill Buford
"I am the one who crossed through space...or stayed where I was...or didn't exist in the first place...."

He certainly benefited immensely from the move.  I wonder if we would have ever seen or even known of such a fantastic improvisational side to him had he carried on in Yes.  He was brilliant with Yes already but Red album has some of the most expressive drumming of that era.

Well, I easily prefer composition over improvisation.

I don't think Wetton's in that pic. I think it's L-R: Fripp, Muir, Bruford, Cross.

Thanks. Have to admit my knowledge is not what it should be on Crimson in between ITWOP and Red

Improvising is for concerts.

Providence is probably the only improvised studio track I like so Crimson could seemingly do this (although Moonchild still leaves me cold)

The Problem with KC and improvising is their lack of improvisation-skill. Although I love KC, I've never liked their improvisation-tracks because they all sound rather directionless and sloppy to me . Compare a track like moonchild with Hymn To Him from Mahavishnu and see how it should be: an epic composition mixed with fine improvisation.
