5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one that got me hooked on Chicago Nov. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was 12 years old when I heard "Just You and Me" playing on the radio. I had never heard of Chicago, and visions of a Lawrence Welk style big band playing this song ran through my head(remember, I was 12). The next day I made a beeline to the local store to spend my allowance money on it, and couldn't believe that only seven guys made such a huge sound.
At the time I loved "Just You N Me," and "Feelin' Stronger Every Day," the most. I can still listen to, and enjoy, both of these pop songs, which is often not the case with songs aimed at the charts. But I realize now that these aren't the gems on this album....and there are some real gems on this album.
Terry Kath's guitar once again is the strength of Chicago (even though the horn section received most of the attention). His guitar is really funky on "What's This World Comin' To." Actually the whole band really cranks it up on this one. It has everything, Funk, Jazz, Rock, Soul and Blues. Another great cut is the blues influenced "Rediscovery." Kath lays down one of the finest Wah Wah guitar performances ever recorded. And "Darlin' Dear" is another great blues influenced song featuring a great guitar solo from Kath. These three songs alone make this album a must buy.
Robert Lamm was the dominant writer for Chicago at this time and he puts out some great songs in "Critic's Choice," "Hollywood," and "Something In This City Changes People." "Critics Choice is actually a solo performance by Lamm. No horn section, no guitar, and no drums. Just Robert and his piano. The song's a response to the terrible critical reviews the band had been receiving over the years.
Overall I find myself returning to this Chicago album quite a bit. I find that to be the best gauge as to whether or not an album is good since great songs stand the test of time. This album certainly does.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pop/Rock, But Still Eclectic Chicago May 18 2003
By Rik22
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1973, "VI" shows Chicago leaving behind the jazz influences that ran through their earlier studio efforts, while still exploring various styles of music in the disc's ten cuts. With this disc, the band settles into a pop rock flow with a hint of country and some blues influences weaved into the mix.
This album was another #1 for the great American group, thanks to the strength of the two single releases, "Just You n' Me" and "Feelin' Stronger Every Day". These tunes are, simply, two of Chicago's finest efforts into the top ten arena and can be considered popular music masterpieces. "Just You n' Me" has it all: superb melody; great vocal by Peter Cetera; the Chicago horns at their best, blowing through one of trombonist Jimmy Pankow's most inspired horn charts; and a mystical avante-garde interlude where Walt Parazaider creates some beautiful textures in his classic exploratory soprano sax solo. This song is unquestionably definitive Chicago.
"Feelin' Stronger Every Day" balanced the band's image nicely on the charts, showing Chicago with a true hard edge. Again, another incomparable melody and hook, great vocals, powerful horns and an exciting double time section where the band, especially drummer extraordinaire Danny Seraphine, shows off their musical chops.
After these two tremendous offerings, however, the rest of the disc is a mixed bag of compositions. Robert Lamm's "Critic's Choice" opens the record, oddly, with just vocal and piano in a lean, yet interesting, comment on the bad press Chicago had received from critics to that point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chicago's Cleanest Recording to Date Jan. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
One thing that Chicago was known for was the quality of their studio recordings. Chicago VI was another high point for the music industry. Chicago VI didn't have a flawless set of songs, but none of their albums did. The thing that made Chicago great was the fact that they had so many great songs on each album. Chicago VI was no different in this respect. You really need a good stereo to realize that "Just You and Me" was
one of the most amazing songs ever recorded. It was a great tune, and Peter Cetera gave one of his very best singing performances on it. The horn arrangement was planned precisely,
and they succeeded in delivering the sound that was intended. The same goes for the bass and drum parts. It was a musical masterpiece. The CD has some other great songs too. "What's This World Comin' To" is one of their most energetic performances. What I like at the time depends on my mood because the songs all are quite different. I like all of them though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another change, another great CD Nov. 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
CHICAGO VI was first issued in July 1973 and promptly hit # 1 in the U.S. for 5 weeks becoming a huge seller. The hits you should already know: "Just You 'N' Me" and "Feelin' Stronger Every Day". Some feel that that is where the album's greatness ends - not so. This album was Chicago's first to approach their music in a pop format, and as always, change is difficult at first. "Critic's Choice" was a scathing (and well-deserved) attack on their unwarranted bad reviews with a touching melody with just piano (a sure sign that this album would be different). I was initially indifferent to this album but have grown to really like it - especially since this re-issue came out. Terry Kath's "Jenny" is a highlight and Peter Cetera's pop ambitions come through with "In Terms Of Two". The only track that tends to lag is "Rediscovery", though it does have a nice, lazy groove. All in all, a great and undervalued album that shows the versatile talents of a near-its-peak Chicago. The bonus cuts are very enjoyable too. For those who feel this album leaves something to be desired, perhaps this re-issue will be the ideal opportunity to subject CHICAGO VI to "rediscovery".
