I absolutely adore Chicago I and II, but after that I feel they started to lose their way. They had a few great songs here and there but lost their soul.

From Willie24 11/03/2013 20:07
Love them or hate them there is no denying that in the US Chicago were one of the most successful bands of all time. Never the critic’s favourites, and with only sporadic success in the UK , Chicago had 10 successive top ten albums including five consecutive number ones in America between 1970 and 1977.

Whilst many people will remember Chicago for their AOR power ballads of the 80’s their beginnings are much more exciting and radical. Chicago Transit Authority, as the band were known as at the time they originally signed with Columbia in 1968, were a brave amalgamation of pop, rock and Jazz with a punchy brass section. Their sound was exciting, the songs varied and the arrangements exceptional. They were blessed with three excellent songwriters each of whom had a distinctive vocal style.

Critically the band gradually declined form there startling debut but commercially they were phenomenally successful.

After their first two albums Chicago would start to take themselves a little bit too seriously, releasing a string of sprawling double albums which the critics attacked with vigour. Despite this the public kept buying and within the morass of music that the band produced in their earliest years there are some splendid tracks.

Chicago went on to release another 20 or so albums with a second period of huge success in the early eighties
