This is the peak accomplishment of Isaac Hayes' career. In 1971 he took 60s soul music and made it sleek, symphonic and refined, paving the way for so much of what became 70s soul, including, most obviously, Barry White's boudoir romps and some of the long instrumental forays of disco. Was this a good thing? Well, as one who generally prefers 60s soul to 70s, I say yes. Soul needed to evolve, and Isaac Hayes' albums of 1969-1972, of which this is the best, came as a needed shock to the system. But Isaac did it without compromising the raw emotion found in the 60s greats. Here is a blow-by-blow:

"Ike's Rap" and "Our Day Will Come" (joined tracks). "Ike's Rap" is a young man's tender words over the phone to a forbidden lover, telling her "I got my greetings today" and will soon be off fighting a distant war. Gentle strings and the rat-a-tat of a military-style snare drum provide ominous backdrop. He then dedicates "the words of this song" to his lover, and suddenly we are into "Our Day Will Come", a radical updating of the early 60s hit by Ruby and the Romantics. Unlike Ruby's breezy optimism, Isaac presents it slowed way down, as a courageous affirmation of faith against terrible opposition. When the orchestral arrangement swells in the climax, if your eyes are still dry, you haven't really been listening. "Our Day Will Come" is my favorite track on the album.

"The Look of Love". What is took Sergio Mendes two and half minutes to do, Isaac gets done in 11 - just long enough to.... well, to generate the wish that this be "just the start of so many groovy nights like this". It ends with an "ahhhhhhhhhh" from Isaac that is sheer theater! This is much closer in spirit to Dusty Springfield's version than Sergio's.

"Ike's Mood".

This album, like its two predecessors defined Ike's work. He shows his continued ability (having already proven himself an first rate writer) to take great songs in their own right and rearrange them to make them new and different classics. "The Look of Love" is a masterpiece, which must give its creators new found pride. However, there is no song like "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling": Sure enough a great work by the Righteous Brothers. A whole 'nother smoke when Ike puts his inimatable stamp on it.
A worthy successor to Hot Buttered Soul, and The I.H. Movement. Like those (unlike what followed) no filler.

Format: Audio CD
For mine- the most well structured album ever, 'To Be Continued' is ultimately a classic tragic scripture of love. From the optimistic start , 'Our Day Will come' right through to the ending 'Runnin out of fools' , this album tells a tale of a relationship gone wrong from the perspective of the male who is getting his heart broken.
Our Day Will Come is the voice of a young man , hopeful that one day he will share a relationship with a girl he has a crush on. His dream comes true in 'the look of love'- but falls apart in 'youve lost that loving feeling'. Most moving however is 'running out of fools', a nerve chilling song which sees the persona reassuring himself that one day his ex-girlfriend/lover/spouse will get her's cause what goes what goes around comes around.
This album is a must for any guy who has had his heart broken- and will mean a lot, like it did for me. Not disimilar to Shakespear's 'Othello' - another timeless masterpiece focusing on love. The title 'To Be Continued' is perhaps a message that there is hope after a bad break up as the story doesn't end there, it continues......
Oh and did I mention that Isaac's vocals are at their best here? And so is the backup Memphis orchestral ensemble...... superb!

By itself, Isaac's moody, sensual and (yes indeed) suspenseful remake of Sergio Mendes' "The Look Of Love" warrants buying this CD. "Our Day Will Come" foreshadows the Disco sound that would materialize just a few years down the line and Isaac's remake of the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" is as powerful and emotive as could be. This is smooth and sophisticated '70s Soul at its finest.

I remember this album when I was a very young man and it still sounds soooo good! He was in top form when ...To Be Continued was produced. It takes you back to the day when groove was in and being Cool was a way of life. Ike showed you how to say what you felt about your girl. We used to call it rapping!!!!

If Stax Records would remaster this album, they should make The Isaac Hayes Movement and ...To Be Continued one complete collection because both albums sound excellent when played together. The other actually takes off and advances where the previous left off. I just listened to them for the first time in full today, I mean I've heard them before, but I had a chance to kick back and enjoy them. True epics and right there along with the other classic albums Ike has done. If You have not heard of Isaac Hayes, or if You only think of him as the voice of Chef on South Park, You got it twisted! Nuff respect due...

This version of "Look of Love" is the best version i've heard still today. Ike layed it down with his 11 minute plus version of this classic cut. His orchestra is so tight nitched. "Runnin' out of Fools" is also the jam on this cd as well.
