    I liked the release of II so much that I was really anticipating the release of V. However, I couldn't find any information on it's release, anywhere. So I was quite surprised when I went into Best Buy yesterday and found it.

    The mix seems quite different from II. In II, the horns were in the background, except for solos, and seemed kind of compressed to me (not a good thing). The bass and Danny's drums were right up front. In V, the mix is very "horn-centric". The horns and vocals are much more prominent. This is nice, however, the drums and bass seem to be buried a bit more. I think I liked the mix for II better, but I like the music on V better so it is a keeper for me.

    I will be on the look out for this disc at Besy Buy. Chicago II was quite impressive, so I am expecting similar things from V.

    By the way, was the stereo track on this disc recorded at 96/24 or 192/24?

    Justin,
    On the jacket it says 96/24 Advanced resolution stereo. By the way, it has an extra live version of Dialogue that is pretty good.

    I just listened to this DVD-A last night, on Advanced Resolution Stereo, with headphones. Sounded great. Back in the day (1969-1975 colleg era), this was not my favovite Chicago album (hard to beat II), but listening to it again last night, I was struck by how good a band they were (and still are). Perhaps the angry young men have mellowed with age?

    Part I

    Terry
    Are you optimistic
    'bout the way things are going?

    Peter
    No, I never ever think of it at all

    Terry
    Don't you ever worry
    When you see what's going down?

    Peter
    No, I try to mind my business,
    that is, no business at all

    Terry
    When it's time to function
    as a feeling human being, will your
    Bachelor of Arts help you get by?

    Peter
    I hope to study further,
    a few more years or so. I also hope
    to keep a steady high

    Terry
    Will you try to change
    things, use the power that you have,
    the power of a million new ideas?

    Peter
    What is this power you
    speak of and this need for things to
    change? I always thought
    that everything was fine

    Terry
    Don't you feel repression just
    closing in around?

    Peter
    No, the campus here is very, very free

    Terry
    Does it make you angry
    the way the war is dragging on?

    Peter
    Well, I hope the President
    knows what he's into, I don't know

    Terry
    Don't you ever see the starvation
    in the city where you live, all the
    needless hunger all the
    needless pain?

    Peter
    I haven't been there lately,
    the country is so fine, but my
    neighbors don't seem hungry 'cause
    they haven't got the time

    Terry
    Thank you for the talk,
    you know you really eased my mind
    I was troubled by the shapes
    of things to come.

    Peter
    Well, if you had my
    outlook your feelings would be
    numb, you'd always think
    that everything was fine

    Part II

    Group
    We can make it happen
    We can change the world now
    We can save the children
    We can make it better
    We can make it happen
    We can save the children
    We can make it happen

    Chicago - Dialogue Lyrics
