2 stars Having lost Peter Cetera, proved to be more challenging than expected as at this stage of career, no other band member could compete with his compositions. Lamm was the closest one, then Champlin. No wonder they found a singer that had a similar voice to Cetera but failed in other music qualities.

Apart from 1-2 songs, it's quite a mediocre album, relying on the 80's sound with minimal horns, heavy synths and poor maybe uninspired songwriting. For me, it is their weakest album until its release in 1986 and regret buying it. The flawed cover of their own cover says it all. Don't waste your time here.
