REVIEWS
Average points: 4.37 (Reviews: 35)
*****
Es war kein erfolg in NL in 1974.... dieser schöner ballade.... <br>"uuuhhuuu wishing you are......" von Album "Chicago VII", aber nach das mega erfolg von "If You Leave Me Now" in 1976 und einer "Greatest Hits" Album... kam dieser song in Februar 1977 doch in Hitparade.... # 13 in NL....
***
ein bisschen lahm...
****
Sehr sanfte und noch nicht so überladene # 11 in den amerikanischen Charts Ende 1974. Drei Beach Boys sangen auch mit.
******
Knapp zwei Jahre vor "If you leave me now" lieferten Chicago mit diesem Titel eine wundervolle Ballade ab, die nebenbei mein Favorit im Gesamtwerk von Chicago ist. Es würde mich im übrigen nicht wundern, wenn Pegasus auch dieses Stück zum kotzen findet.
******
Gut, dass ich nicht Pegasus heiße... ;-))<br><br>Auch für mich eines der größten Opuscula der Band. Herrlich schwebender Backgroundgesang. Doch bevor man völlig abhebt, kommt zwischendurch mal eine äußerst erdige Bridge. Und eine Posaune zum Schluss - oder ist das eine Trompete. Klasse, jedenfalls.
*****
Na da waren sie ja scheinbar sehr beeinflusst von Pink Floyd's Song..höre da deutliche Ähnlichkeiten!<br>US #11

Klasse!
****
hm.. ..das kann ich leider sooft hören wie ich will, es bleibt ein wenig strahlungsarm.. ..sorry!
*****
Schöne Ballade, keineswegs eintönig...
*****
sweet
******
Wunderbare atmosphärische Nummer. Klare 8*!
***
Beetje slappe plaat van Chicago. Ik val bijna in slaap.
****
Dutch Radio 2 Top 2000 notering in 2007 (1843)
*****
▒ Mooie 'rustige' ballad van de Amerikaanse formatie "Chicago" uit 1974 !!! In eerste instantie was het géén hit voor de heren in Nederland !!! Maar door de toenemende belangstelling werd de plaat in 1977 opnieuw uitgebracht in Nederland !!! Met meer succes bleek later !!! (NL Top 40: 6 wk / # 13) ☺!!!
****
Schmalziges Stück, ok noch zu ertragen
*****
Schönes Stück aus dem Jahr 1974.
****
...gut...
****
Dieses ältere Zeug ist auch für ältere Herren.
****
ist nicht mein Ding, mag anderes von Chicago mehr, aber die Chöre sind wunderschön, Beach Boys stand irgendwo weiter oben. Deshalb eine 4.
****
Schöner Hit, der mich aber nicht weiter umhaut. Kannte ich bis gerade auch gar nicht.
****
ganz relaxed, aber auch langweilig
******
Gibt es vielleicht eine alternative Version ohne die "ooooh"'s? Dann wären das sicher 6*, so aber leider nicht ganz. Driftet ein bisschen zu stark in den Kitsch..<br><br>edit: Schwachsinn! Auch mit allen uhs und ahs solide 7*!
Last edited: 18.07.2010 18:12

netter Song<br>
*****
Sehr schöne dicht instrumentierte und harmonisch gesungene Ballade, die damals höhere Chartpositionen verdient hätte.
****
Rockballade aus den 70er, welche man sich im Strandhaus anhören kann – 4*…
****
an awesome track indeed
*****
Plaat flopte in het jaar van release, na If you leave me now werd het nummer opnieuw uitgebracht en haalde toen een Top 20 notering.
****
Interessant.
*
Unterirdisch
**
nichtssagendes seichtes Geplätscher... 2.5
****
<br>Geht gerade noch so.
****
Hat eine ganz eigene Spannung, die zu Anfang der 2. Songhälfte in einem tollen Gesangspart gipfelt. Danach plätschert er allerdings leider nur noch vor sich hin.
*****
Find ich sehr schön, eher Beach Boys als Chicago.<br><br>@remember: Dies war ein Jahr vor Pink Floyds Wish you were here. Sehe auch keine Ähnlichkeit.
****
4++
*****
Erinnert NULL an Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here'. Hab wirklich versucht Ähnlichkeiten herauszufinden, außer ähnlicher Titel wirklich keine Gemeinsamkeiten.<br>Die Leadvocals teilen sich hier Terry Kath und Peter Cetera. Ja, und tatsächlich drei Beach Boys singen im Background mit. Wusste ich bis heute nicht.
