EDITORS’ NOTES

As this well-selected “best of” package makes clear, Chicago quickly found that tuneful midtempo numbers and romantic balladry were their true forte. In early hits like “Color My World,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?,” and “Saturday in the Park,” the band emphasizes smooth, plaintive vocals and tight, lustrous arrangements. Tunes like “Wishing You Were Here,” “If You Leave Me Now” and “Old Days” continue in a soft yet distinctive vein, boasting seamless ensemble work along with inescapable hooks. Weathering the loss of lead singer Peter Cetera in 1985, the band remains faithful to their core sound on such melodically-rich singles as “Look Away” and “What Kind of Man Would I Be?”

Chicago

I'm not sure who the editor/first reviewer was, but it's clear they haven't passed High chool music appreciation class. Chicago was all about the HORNS! The rest of the ensemble were accompaniment to that brass section. These guys were jazz students when they formed this band, and were virtuoso instrumentalists. My God, they didn't even mention this in their "review" Now go back to the first 3 albums, turn up your volume and listen to one of the best horn sections EVER. I don't think the reviewer listen to this band AT ALL. Please don't take the idiotic blathering of a clueless wanna-be reviewer. This band was full of exceptional musicians who took their music seriously. I'm still shaking my head. ugh.
