20th Century Boy" is a song by T. Rex, written by Marc Bolan. It was released as a single in 1973 and reached No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was not featured on an original studio album but was included as a bonus track on a reissue of 1973 album Tanx. It later returned to the UK Top 20 in 1991, peaking at No. 13, fourteen years after Bolan's death, when it was used in a Chris Hartwill-directed commercial for Levi's starring Brad Pitt.

There are five songs on this album which I think are atrocious. I think this album and all T-rex material could improve if they took there time to make sure everything was right. The overall sound was a mixture of accoustic folk and hard electric guitar rock n' roll with a singer who sounds as if he's in a contest to see if he can be the next Bob Dylan. He isn't successful but by God he sounds just like Dylan if Dylan was a curly haired British Hebrew boy with surreal lyrics that Jethro Tull would not even touch. The guitar work of Marc Bolan was exisquiste but every thing else folded faster than a fat man at a Weight Watchers meeting.

Given that the T. Rex/Marc Bolan catalog is cluttered with collections, all recycling much of the same material, it's easy to be suspicious of another hits compilation, such as Hip-0's 2002 release 20th Century Boy: The Ultimate Collection, especially if it's billed as an "ultimate" retrospective. Sure, some may complain about a missing single or album track, but this is a stellar, pitch-perfect compilation, balancing the aforementioned big hits with relatively lesser-known gems like "Raw Ramp" and a cover of "Summertime Blues," resulting in the only single-disc compilation to capture all sides of Marc Bolan and T.
