Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the R&B/Soul legend. This album not only marks Ronald's first solo foray, but the milestone 50 years in the recording business! Artists putting in guest appearances include T.I. ("Put Your Money On Me") and the Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin, on the album's climactic closing version of Carole King's "You've Got a Friend," produced by Jerry `Wonda' Duplessis (of the Fugees). Mr. I continues the Isley tradition of working with today's hottest young producers. In addition to Fuego (who co-produced "No More" with Max Gousse) and Duplessis, other producers include Greg Curtis (known for his work with Keyshia Cole) on four tracks, Tricky Stewart, Kajun, and Song Dynasty.

Next is a modern classic.."NO MORE", I love this one!!. "IF I LOSE MY WOMAN" is so bouncy yet mellow.

A definite welcomed addition to my music collection.

On MR. I., his first official "solo" album, Ronald Isley continues the Mr. Biggs persona on such mack daddy tracks as "Supposed To Do," "Take It How You Want It," "Put Your Money On Me" (with fellow jailbird T.I.), and "Dance For Me". It might be a good time to retire this character for awhile because it's a little immature to hear an experienced man sing about being someone's sugar daddy ("Supposed To Do"), or getting his swag on with da homies ("Put Your Money On Me"). And the "Ladies and Gentleman, Mr. I" introductions on "Take It How You Want It" and "Put Your Money On Me" come off as a little too obnoxious, especially coming from loudmouth rappers.

However, MR. I really shines when Isley drops the gangsta attitude and wraps his Marvin Gaye-like tenor on such impressive romantic tunes as "No More," "If I Lose My Woman,"What I Miss The Most" (the best ballad on the album), and the closer "You Had Me At Hello". And when the Queen of Soul joins Mr. Biggs on a blazing version of Carole King's "You've Got A Friend", it's time to break out the fire extinguisher!

Nobody can deny Ron Isley's `legend' status by any means; the man - through The Isley Bros. has more hits than many new artists will ever have. With a beautifully, sensual sounding tenor in his possession, Isley possesses a golden voice - one of the best of our time. On recent outings, `Mr. Biggs' has held it all together, continuing to `reinvent' himself just as he has throughout his long career with The Isley Bros. Some will be quick to clarify this is Isley's second solo album (After 2003's Here I Am), but keep in mind recent efforts focus mostly on the soul legend exclusively. Mr I, his fifth studio release of the new millennium (following 2001`s Eternal, 2003's Body Kiss and Here I Am: Isley Meets Bacharach, and 2006's Baby Makin' Music (Feat. Ronald Isley AKA Mr. Biggs), excluding 2007's holiday effort) falls short of an `upswing' for Isley. While Mr. I should serve as the perfect `comeback' album after Isley's bout with cancer and imprisonment for tax evasion, it is merely an average addition to his discography. Even the better cuts from Mr. I fail to capitalize on the momentum set by his previous three studio efforts with his brothers. The missing link? R. Kelly, whose songwriting and production talents truly helped to make Isley sound incredibly fresh and relevant without sounding ill with modern, gimmicky R&B.Read more ›

Ronald Isley can really sing after all these years. There are no mega tracks on here but as a whole it is a very soulful affair. Well worth the money!
How many mega soul voices passed through the hands of Motown.....Ron,Marvin Gaye,Gladys Knight,Levi Stubbs,David Ruffin - all instantly recognisable and totally WOW!

Ronald Isley is still as smooth as he ever was on this album. Inundated with ballads, the women are sure to find tracks that will have replay value and the gentlemen can learn a thing or two from these lyrics for Isley speaks on giving women what they want from a material and emotional standpoint. T.I. and Aretha Franklin are featured here; they do quite well. Isley sounds very gentle as he croons through all ten tracks.

"Supposed to Do" is sure to be a favorite, especially to the ladies. Isley says that a women is supposed to have breakfast cooked for them in the morning and good sex at the crack of dawn, as well cars and homes, all courtesy of their man. It's a great and sexy ballad indeed. "Put Your Money" is one of the more contemporary tracks on "Mr. I." I enjoyed it. T.I. does a nice job with his bars. "What I Miss the Most" is the performance of the album. He is doing some serious crooning and the beautiful lyrics and fantastic instrumentation only enhance the song.

There are no missteps and no filler here. Just press play and hold your lover!

Mikeisha's Top 5

1. "What I Miss the Most"
2. "Supposed to Do"
3. "No More"
4. "Put Your Money on Me"
5. "If I Lose My Woman"
