    Chicago 13 (August 1979)

    Chicago XIV (July 1980). My mother bought me this album sometime in the early 80s. I was only listening to music from the early 70s then. She said I should try listening to some new music. I listened to it once when she bought it for me. I probably haven’t heard it since. And I never want to hear it again. Probably the worst album of these five, and therefore the worst of all fifteen Chicago albums I’ve listened to.

    Chicago 16 (June 1982) I wanted to hear what David Foster did to their sound. A better album than 14, but not the music I want to hear. I didn’t like it.


    Chicago 17 (May 1984) Somehow this is worse than 16


    Chicago 18 (September 1986). The first album without Peter Cetera. They didn’t get better.


    After Chicago 7 in 1974, it’s all downhill for me. I will definitely listen to the first six studio albums again. I hope never to listen to Chicago 8 and later.

    And now for something completely different.

    I saw the movie when it came out and didn't like it. Then watched the classic stage version (with Lansbury and Hearn) and realized how wickedly funny it was and what a difference it made when the main characters were good singers. Cutting the ballad from the movie was a huge mistake, and so was making it edgy and mopey. Where was the dark humour? The cheesy grand guignol? The fourth-wall-breaking?

    Not sure what is going on here but appears to be a one-man quartet:

    to Malx for bringing one of the "great lost bands" to the attention of the forum -

    "If were a British progressive rock and jazz rock band formed in 1969. In the period spanning 1970–75, they released eight studio-recorded albums and undertook 17 tours of Europe, the US and Canada."
