One of R&B's longest running and best-loved groups, the Isley Brothers unleashed a torrent of tasty soul, funk, and smooth balladry between their formation in the 1950s and the 2000s. Those who haven't followed the Brothers' career over the decades will likely find their stylistic range and the size of their discography dizzying, which makes a compilation like THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION a perfect primer for newbies.
DEFINITIVE is arranged chronologically, starting up with the gritty R&B of "Shout!" and vintage love songs like "This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak for You)." The Isleys' hard funk turns up on "Fight the Power" (the seminal "It's Your Thing" is conspicuously absent). But most of the material here is devoted to quiet-storm ballads such as "Smooth Sailing Tonight" and "Floatin' On Your Love." The term "definitive" is debatable (how to create such a collection from so much material?), but this set is a great place for Isley initiates.
