5 stars This album is pretty crazy. It is very experimental and diverse. The guitar is allowed to develope itself on this in the person of the songs, "Free form Guitar," and "Liberation." Terry Kath is stunning. He is a great singer as well.

The band do some really good prog in the first song, called, "Introduction." It does a lot of changes. Then there are the hits,"Does anybody know what time it is," "Beginnings," "I'm a Man," to name just a few. This album should also be required listening for all you prog heads out there. The way the band incorporates the brass with the guitar stuff is really cool.

I consider "Chicago Transit Authority" an essential part of the prog movement and I give it 5 stars.
