AllMusic Review by

Let's be clear from the outset -- 20th Century Masters does not contain all of Cream's essential moments. It's missing such mind-warps as "SWALBR," trippy folk-psychedelia as "Anyone for Tennis," flights of fancy as "Wrapping Paper," crushingly inevitable blues as "I'm So Glad," and the brilliant throwaway "Doing That Scrap Yard Thing," all of which added to Cream's character. Still, if you're just looking for the hits, this has most of them, from "I Feel Free" and "Spoonful" to "Strange Brew," "Sunshine of Your Love," "Crossroads," "White Room," and "Badge." For those who like to skim the surface, sampling what they know, this will certainly satisfy, but if you're curious, you're advised to dig deeper than this.
