  • A good article overall, but it's extremely inaccurate to say the band hadn't had a true hit in its last five releases.

    If Stone of Sisyphus was going to be Chicago 22, then the last five, non-Greatest Hits albums takes you back to Chicago 16.

    These songs were the charted hits:

    Chicago 16 -- "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" & "Love Me Tomorrow."

    Chicago 17 -- biggest selling album of Chicago's career -- "Stay the Night," "Hard Habit to Break," "Along Comes a Woman" & "You're the Inspiration."

    Chicago 18 -- "Will You Still Love Me?"

    Chicago 19 -- "Look Away," "What Kind of Man Would I Be?" "I Won't Wanna Live without Your Love" & "You're Not Alone."

    Chicago 20 -- "We Can Last Forever" -- from Chicago 19, but released off the GH package.

    Chicago 21 -- "Chasin' the Wind" & "You Come to My Senses." (neither of these were big hits)

  • HuskerEd -

    You are totally correct. What I meant to say, was that Chicago had not had a true hit in the last five years - 1988-1993, not off their last five albums as I stated. "Look Away" off Chicago 19, released in 1988 hit no.1, while "I Don't Wanna Live Without Your Love" off the same album hit no.3 on the charts and "What Kind of Man Would I Be?" reached no. 5, making all three smash hits for the band.

    Thanks for pointing out my error.

  • No worries, Terry. Like I said, a very good article overall.
