Album Review

As listed in the booklet included in this DVD-set-looking package, Epic/Legacy had eight other Isley Brothers compilations in print when they released The Music of the Isley Brothers. One of them, It's Your Thing: The Story of the Isley Brothers, happens to include just as many discs as this particular in-depth anthology, yet there are more tracks and it -- unlike The Music Of -- also covers the group's Motown years. The discs here contain a large percentage of the biggest singles, including "It's Your Thing," "That Lady," "Fight the Power," "For the Love of You," and "Between the Sheets." Casual fans won't likely notice omissions like "Sensuality" or "Who Loves You Better," but better options are indeed available.
Andy Kellman, Rovi
