2 stars A massive withdrawal from epic albums to short commercial more melody-driven songwriting.

The first song is quite good despite simplified composition. Just you'n'me is a disaster for most die-hard Chicago fans, so straightforward and limited with brass section - a shame for 1973 which was one of the most fruitful for fusion and prog rock bands. Short saxophone solo saves it. In general, jazz-rock elements are subdued in favour of accessibility and short songs.

There are still good moments because these are mature musicians. But I would wish for more instrumental moments and more experiments.

It seems like the weakest Chicago album of the first half of the 70's.

Go for the next or any previous album.
