3 stars On of the legendary bands that I alwys mention when these two bands are metioned: Chase and Chicago. Even though the band was well known in my country with its hit "I Love Yo More Than You'll Ever Know" but actually they have good music overall. I can say that Blood, Sweat & Tears was at the forefront of the brass rock music. This album represented the return of its legendary lead vocal David Clayton-Thomas' who departed the band in 1972.

In my opinion about this album is not bad at all and in fact I can see that the compositions are much heavier and jazzier than Chicago. Look at "Ride captain ride" that contains heavy horn section and very nice and jazzy interlude. The song has excellent energy and harmony. I really like the jazzy interlude. The following track "Life" is also a good one. The third track "No show" could be considered prog and it has no vocal line. "I was a witness to a war" emphasize more on vocal part with music as background only, in jazzy mood. On thing that quite surprised me is the fifth track " One room country shack".

The album is more on brass-rock type of music with some fusion with jazz. Overall, this is a good album worth collecting. Keep on proggin' ...!
