OK, whew, where do I start?? First off, this is the best put-together box I think Rhino has ever produced. There is nothing wrong, everything right. The packaging is immaculate, sorta like the Yes box but better.
"Chicago 28" (proof, count the number of logos!!), aka "The Box" covers all the bases of this groundbreaking, highly underrated, lately critically overlooked and underappreciated, innovative, unclassifiable "rock + roll band with horns", and ties up all loose ends. The 60-page booklet is awesome, with tons of cool photos, memorabilia, quotes, and well-written essays. The detailing is thorough, with all proper Billboard chart info, album covers, the works. Oh and the DVD is cool, exciting, historic, and really fun. The song choices are spot-on, with all charting singles included (except for the 1986 remake of "25 Or 6 To 4", no biggie), key and band/fan fave album-only songs + suites, and all tracks from the double "Very Best Of Chicago/Only The Beginning" aka "Chicago 27" included (except for "Sing Sing Sing" from "Night & Day/Big Band" aka "Chicago 23", again, no biggie, "Caravan" is here instead), so no need to buy the double CD anymore, served its purpose. PLUS, 3 songs from the Holy Grail, "Chicago 22/Stone Of Sisyphus" are included, woohoo!! (Those songs are AMAZING, Warner dropped the ball in rejecting the album back in 1993 due to it not being a radio POP album--they were tired of that kind of predictable stuff--it was pure art, like the first 3 albums with modern production touches!!) The way things look, Rhino will probably release that masterwork in the near future, along with remasters of their Warner-period 80s-90s albums, which NEED an overhaul.

The Chicago box is something to marvel at. There have been many attempts to capture "the best" of Chicago through the means of compilation after compilation. This box truely does represent what most will consider the best. The box is in chronological order and features songs from most of their albums. The song selection includes hits but also takes a look at other great album tracks as well. The order of the songs makes for an interesting listen without getting too sleepy or cumbersome. The packaging is nice and there are plenty of neat pictures to look at. The 6th disc (a DVD) contains selections from a concert and then a promotional film from CHicago 13. Neat stuff. Some reviewers have spent a lot of energy pointing out the difference between early and later Chicago and in most cases have given the box a lower rating because it covers their entire selection. To me that is a benifit. It's true Chicago did change from a classic rock band to a more ballad-oriented approach, but so what. Bands change, people change, and music changes. Besides, what else would a Chicago box set cover?! Just what one person considers the best era of Chicago? If anything, the coverage of the entire cataloge is the strongest point. The rest is just bonus. If you are a casual fan, this is a nice start but for true die hard fans, this is a must.

Rhino's recent box set "Chiago" is awesome! Overall, the delivery is quite professional and complete. From "Introduction" to "Show me a Sign" are all here, including a DVD of vintage footage of Terry, Danny and Pete, jamming once again with the era's best brass section pounding away at complex charts, while Lamm remains busy on keys all over the place. I loved listening to it and watching the bonus DVD. I highly recommend it. If you love actual music, then you'll love this box set. Yes, Chicago are a musician's band, which makes them the coolest of all! Who cares what a person's opinions are, when he/she has little ability? If you don't have ability, then buy this box set and perhaps you'll learn to make a guitar talk or write a toon, or pop a note through brass! Rock on!

The problem with a boxset by Chicago is that, effectively one is compiling three bands, the jazz-rock fusion experimentalists, the soft rock monsters, and the aged 80s power ballad kings.
The ride is basically like watching a huge beautiful vessel being built, put to sea, taking speed, crossing the Atlantic only to reduce speed and slowly die a long death sinking in the sea.
Chicago had everything, exceptional talent, intelligent lyrics, a combination of expertise in different styles from different members (Terry Kath the rocker, Robert Lamm the political commentarist and soul man, Peter Cetera the pop and R&B craftman, James Pankow the intricate arranger), and through their first five six albums, all was fine. Like The Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac and other "mixed-styles" bands, the combination was powerful, invigorating, innovative and commercial. They were progressive but focused, tight but loose.
But once the formula was set and the pressure for hits overtook the ability to write what they wanted, rot set in and everything went downhill. It is painful and sad to see the slow decline and ultimate abandon to corporate-formula rock from such an innovative act. Just why this box has so many cuts from the dreadful Hot Streets-Chicago 16 era is sadistic to say the least.
Then everything that made this band one of the most energetic live and recording acts in rock was lost in favour of indistinguishable FM friendly soft rock. They took a giant leap towards corporate-rock-hell to compete with the REOs of the 80s, setting themselves as a syrup ballad formulaic Peter Cetera vehicle. Ultimately the frontman would go solo to reach even lower depths of musical boredom, leaving the band in "outside writers hands to maintain the syrup production.
