Overview

The '90s found Chicago's lineup minus drummer Daniel Seraphine, but with guitarist Dawayne Bailey, who had been a sideman, a full-fledged member. It also found the group at the closest thing to a career crisis in a decade. This album sold poorly and spun off only one Top 40 hit, "Chasin' the Wind," despite containing some typical, if not outstanding, material in tunes like "You Come to My Senses" (which belatedly scaled the adult contemporary chart) and "Explain It to My Heart." Clearly, a new approach was in order.

This is not the worst album. I prefer buying a compilation but this is good. There are a lot of good tunes here like the sad ballad written by Tom Kelly & Billy Steinberg "You Come To My Senses" (One of the best tracks of the album) and "Chasin' the wind" written by Diane Warren (She wrote "Unbreak My Heart", "If You Asked Me To", "Because You Loved me" a real adult contemporary writter). This is not one of the best albums from Chicago, but you'll still find adult contemporary songs.

Chicago Twenty 1 is hardly the group's most stellar performance, but it's nowhere near as bad as some reviews make it seem. While not in the same league as some of Chicago's other recordings, Twenty 1 is actually one of my favorites. Bill Champlin's vocals on ''Chasin' the Wind'' are heart-wrenching.

I must say that the album was not what I expected; but I thought it was good for me. I appreciate the music, as well as what the lyrics are. It's all about perspective.

I don't know or care who's the author of what song, but at this point, Chicago were just a studio band with no ideas left and one of the most generic and unidentifiable bands on the adult contemporary airwaves.
