Movie Reviews

Don't these guys have ANY pride ?
StickBass | London, U.K. | 09/08/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"As a teenager, Chicago was my favourite band, so I was pretty excited to view this video to see what these guys were working on now! The answer would appear to be - NOTHING AT ALL! Hey, fair enough, if they want to play the same songs for 30 years, and people still pay to hear them, why not ? BUT, why allow themselves to be filmed pretending to try to remember and "arrange" songs they've played thousands of times before, as if they were some great new material ? And why allow interviews to be released consisting of moronic questions asked by 2 of the most brainless interviewers I have ever seen, and answers of less than zero interest to anyone, unless you are a 3 year old who has never seen an instrument before...The whole thing was appalling, and my conclusion is, these guys have NO pride..."
Chicago made boring
J. R. Johnson | Orlando, Florida | 04/20/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I am a big Chicago fan. However, this video/DVD is just boring. Obviously, Chicago doesn't need to rehearse much to play the same basic concert list of 25 year old songs. Plus, Chicago is lacking to many original members these days to be the great band they once were. What the public wants is a great Chicago DVD of an entire concert from the 1970s. Please note, Chicago has not released an album of original material since approximately 1990. If this is a video of real artists working, then what are they working on. Apparently, just to get a paycheck playing all their old songs."
Horrible sound mix; Inane Interviewers
M. Moss | Albany, NY United States | 08/01/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The RAW crew visits a Chicago rehearsal. The band is listening to themselves via a headphone mix. We're hearing only the raw sound - meaning horns and drums. It's a sin to charge $$ for this!! And the interviews!!! Questions are along the line of: "What's your favorite color?"
The ONLY thing of ANY value is the Bonus clip from a live performance."
Lucky I took no notice of the reviews
laurie Atlas | geelong australia | 02/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I found this DVD really interesting and worth having because you get to see the great ' Chicago' doing something that you would never normally see.That being rehearsing for a tour.I like the way it has them rehearsing in the studio and working out how a song works and then some live footage so you can see the end result on stage.And whats with all this criticism of the hosts especially the female one a)shes hardly on for a start, but clearly happy to be there and b)she's easy on the eye.As I said in the title of this review 'Lucky I took no notice of you guys'boy your a negative lot just lie back one afternoon again and again and enjoy a different look at one of the greatest bands of our time the mighty 'Chicago." Oh only one mark off because I would've liked more i.e the whole concert they were rehearsing for other than that highly recommended."
