Along the way to being a bridge throughout the history of R&B throughout the latter half of the 20th century, the Isley Brothers also directly helped shape facets of the genre along the way. Starting in the '70s, eldest Isley siblings Ronald, Rudolph, and the late O'Kelly carved out a soundtrack for silk-sheet relations along with fellow love lords Barry White and Marvin Gaye.
This collection hinges on Ronald Isley's creamy falsetto; it's easy to mistake him for Al Green, particularly against a background of swirling keyboards on "For the Love of You (Parts 1 & 2)" and the crying guitar of "Voyage to Atlantis." As usual, the Isleys include unlikely artistic interpretations (Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me," and Seals & Crofts' "Summer Breeze") that work superbly. The most memorable bedside listening comes from the thick-as-molasses beat, crooning vocals, and background grunting of "Between the Sheets," the quintessential jam that's influenced an army of contemporary R&B lotharios, including R. Kelly and Joe. LOVE SONGS proves the Isleys to be the masters at the art of the seductive song.
