Chicago - III RIAA Certified Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Mitch Myers

While Chicago were based in Los Angeles by the time they made this album, the band's horn-laden pop stylings had not changed dramatically since their inception in 1967. Still featuring the triple-threat vocal attack of Terry Kath, Robert Lamm, and Peter Cetera, Chicago were a well-orchestrated rock band showcasing jazzy compositions and slick arrangements. The late Terry Kath's bluesy guitar and voice were showcased in the ambitious "Hour in the Shower" while Pete Cetera's mainstream leanings were unveiled in "Lowdown." Producer and longtime mentor James William Guercio is not as efficient on III, indicating a lack of focus within the band. Despite lengthy suites, lots of soloing, and elaborate horn charts, the songwriting leaves something to be desired. Verdict: Not as good as their first two recordings.
