Im Sommer 1971 eine # 7 in den USA, da gab's zu jener Zeit erheblich bessere Hits.
*****
...sehr gut...
***

mir gefaellt die Gesangsmelodie sehr.
***

***
Mittelprächtig
******
absoluter schweber von "The Chicago Transit Authority"... ...einfach spitzenmusik!
****
die erste hälfte tendenz 5, danach wirds mir zu lang und chaotisch
*****
sehr gut
******
Super!
****
erst später ausgekoppelte single vom "transit" album, welches ursprünglich nur 3 singles hatte..recht entspannte romantik, die nicht immer passt..
*****
beeindruckend
*****
Am besten gefällt mir dieses verspielt berhythmete Frühwerk, wenn die Bläsersätze kraftvoll in Erscheinung treten. Dass die klanglichen Beginnings der später mit Schmachtballaden Welterfolge feiernden Combo im Jazz liegen, verdeutlichen die Soli im letzten Songdrittel. Der dort ansässige Bombast überzeugt mich von der Richtigkeit einer sanft aufgerundeten 5. Hörenswert!
******
hinreißend gute Nummer von ihrem ersten Album mit fetzigem Bläserarrangement.
****
Das ist mehr was für Fans. Für alle andern viel zu lang geraten.
****
Extrem aufwendig produziert, toll gespielt, aber nicht ganz bei meinen Favoriten aus den frühen 70ern.
****
gut
*****
Wie immer bei den Frühwerken Chicago's mehr als dichtes Arrangement und sehr interessante Instrumentierung. Die Spielfreude kommt richtig gut rüber - Tempiwechsel, alles drin - gute 5*.
****
das muntere Bläserspiel gefällt mir hier, angenehmer Rhythmus – 4+…
***
sweet sounding song
***
Geflopte single in Nederland maar het beluisteren meer dan waard.
***
▒ Uit de vroegere tijd van "Chicago", eind april 1969 !!! Even wennen !!! Het plaatje haalde eind juli 1971 toch de Nederlandse hitlijsten !!! Ook toen liep het Nederlandse publiek er nog altijd niet warm voor !!! (NL Tip 30: 5 wk / # 3) ☺!!!
****
4* sind ok
****
4- sind mir ok.
****
Jazz-Rock oder wie kann man dies nennen?
*****
Easy Listening mit klasse Gesang vom Lamm.
*
Damit kann ich überhaupt nichts anfangen, ist Schrott für mich.
***
Reicht nicht ganz für eine 4.
***
das Bläserspiel gefällt mir gut, das ist aber auch schon das einzig Nennenswerte bei diesem Song...
******
Great
***
redelijk
****
Klingt sehr leichtfüssig und angenehm, aber leider auch nicht nach einem grossen Hit - für eine 4 reicht's aber locker!
****
Die letzten 2 Minuten werten den ansonsten relativ durchwachsenen Song in der Tat enorm auf. Aber auch nur unter Vorbehalt. Luftsprünge lösen die paar Trompeter bei mir wahrlich nicht aus. Knappe 4.
****
<br>Ihr vierter US Top 10 Hit klingt nicht mal so übel.
