5.0 out of 5 stars Last Hurrah Oct. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
As a long time Chicago fan I was devestated when Terry Kath died shortly after the release of this album. It marks the end of one of America's great original rock bands. Although I have read where band members have claimed this was one of their weakest efforts, I find myself listening to it over and over again. The guitar on "Takin'It On Uptown" is about as "Hendrix" as you can get, with Kath even playing his guitar backwards. The album is more "Blues" flavored than usual for Chicago, with songs like "Mississippi Delta Blues," "Till The End Of Time," "Takin'It On Uptown," and "This Time."
"Policeman" is a smooth groove that's easy to get into even though the lyrics are somewhat sentimental (a Chicago trademark). "Vote for Me" is as politically relevant today as it was then, and harkens back to the band's early anti-establishment songs, poking fun at politicians who promise us the moon while asking for large donations.
"Take Me Back To Chicago," is probably the most recognizable title on the album since it was one of the two pop chart songs on the album. This song really rocks even though it borders on the sentimental side. It features great flute playing, great guitar, and Chaka Khan on backing vocals.
Overall there are ten really great cuts on this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars READ ME!!! (Please) May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Chicago had by their eleventh album built a phenomenal fan base up. Which is why it is so sad that guitarist, vocalist and song writer Terry Cath went and accidentally shot himself. (Something you don't hear every day!) After this Chicago would never be the same. They were still a good band, most notably from Chicago 16-18 however they lost the soulfull voice of Cath. He gave an emotion to the band that his replacement Bill Chapman could not, well, replace.
However this is nothing to do with the music on the album, which is, some would argue, the main point of an album. So, the highlights are pretty much every track. It is a superb album up to their ussual standard. There are two very beautiful tracks right next to eachother, 'Til the End of Time and the exquiset Policeman (just listen to those horns!). There's also the rather snazy track Vote For Me which proves Chicago rock, and the rather out of place, but still great track Takin' it on Uptown. And the icing on the cake... the rest of the tracks. To be honest they are all great and I'd just end up listing them all.
Anywho, this is a beautiful and well constructed album. I STRONGLY advise you buy it!

Terry Kath, who's blazing guitar work and gruff, soulful vocals contributed greatly to Chicago, died after making this album. The loss coincided with the transition of Chicago from a innovative prog/jazz rock band to a top 40s oriented ballad group. Chicago XI is a weaker effort from the band, paling by comparison to the fantastic II and III, but still producing some choice cuts. "Policeman" and "Take me back to Chicago" show excellent arrangement and prodution values, while "This Time" is a pleasant song. "Baby what a big surprise" forshadows the oncoming Pete Cetera dominated ballad era. For Kath, his last hurrah is felt in the form of the guitar-dominated "Mississippi Delta City Blues" and "Takin' it on up town". IF you're just starting with Chicago, go straight to the beginning of their career and leave this one 'till later. Still, for the bigger fans, Chicago XI has its rewards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chicago Closes an Era April 24 2003
By Rik22
Format:Audio CD
Chicago XI, released in 1977, stands as another solid entry from Chicago in the '70's. As with their previous two studio releases, this disc displays Chicago's diversity of style in approaching both pop and rock while maintaining the signature sound that they had solidified by this point in their existence. No one could imagine upon initial release of this album that Terry Kath would soon no longer be part of their future. In early 1978, this amazingly unique rock guitarist died in a gun accident and the group would never be the same.
Thankfully, Chicago XI highlights Terry, both vocally and on guitar, to the greatest extent on any Chicago studio release since Chicago III.
The disc cuts open with Terry's "Mississippi Delta City Blues". No guitar solo, but terrific funky rhythym parts supporting the band and his growling R&B baritone. Danny Seraphine, as always, let's loose on this track, seemingly propelling the Chicago horns (in excellent form) across the song as they blow free and powerfully.
Peter Cetera's "Baby What a Big Surprise" although, probably the worst-titled Chicago song ever, is actually a very musical piece, which hints of baroque style as Lee Loughnane blows a beautiful background track on piccolo trumpet. Terry also provides some interesting and unique guitar parts on this tune.
"Take Me Back to Chicago" is simply terrific and displays Chicago at their best. Robert Lamm takes us back to the Windy City of his youth with his comforting vocal on this tune written by drummer Danny Seraphine. Great rhythym guitar underlay, powerful drum fills by Danny and the Chicago horns breezing across the music create a pastoral setting to bring the listener to the title city.
