Product Description

The long-awaited return to center-stage for Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Ronald Isley has finally arrived, with Baby Makin' Music by The Isley Brothers featuring Ronald Isley a.k.a. Mr. Biggs, their first album for Island Def Jam's Def Soul Classics imprint. Features the first single 'Just Came Here To Chill'. Universal. 2006.

Amazon.com

For five decades, nuance has been the name of Ronald Isley's game. There it is, flowing in a warm, sexed-up cascade through "That Lady," and there it is again, reeking of need, longing, and romance on "For the Love of You." So why he allowed this long-awaited follow-up to "Body Kiss," the 2003 disc that proved the Isleys have still got it, to be titled so cheesily is anybody's guess. But in the end it doesn't matter. At 65, Mr. Biggs' legendary voice is amazingly well preserved, and even when he's tackling a song that could get him kicked out of church--the baldly libidinous "Show Me" or the downright lecherous "Give It to You," say--he works it with such genuine emotion that even those for whom baby makin' is a long lost pursuit will want to croon woozily, wistfully along. It wouldn't be a 2006 disc, of course, if there weren't a long list of collaborators to name-check, but here the all-star assemblage actually adds up to something. R. Kelly doesn't make "Blast Off" blast off so much as sail, and between Jermaine Dupri and Tim and Bob (the team behind Bobby Valentino), velvet-vibed sparks fly off of every track. Should a 2007 baby boom hit the record books, you know who to blame. --Tammy La Gorce

In the summer of 2004, while Mr. Biggs' and the great Patti LaBelle's super-duet "Gotta Go Solo" still peppered R&B stations' playlists, I heard Ronald Isley had a stroke. I thought, "Well, I guess that's it for the Isley Brothers." Not just yet! Mr. Biggs is back (on the DefJam label no less) to catch another case with Baby Makin' Music. It's truly an honor to have the Isleys as one of your favorite bands of all-time, yet still be young enough to appreciate their unions with the newer producers of today. Their devoted fans of the '70s are likely not their fans of today, and further, their surfing fans of the late '50s are likely not their devoted fans of the '70s. OK, enough of the obvious, let's critique!

Off the top, Baby Makin' Music has something to offer, such as the stress-relieving "Just Came Here To Chill", which is currently gliding across airwaves and is musically consistent with what the Isleys have always done and features Ronald Isley checking his alter-ego at the door to spend one-on-one time with his woman. Other cuts that jump off the disc are the celestial "Blast Off" featuring an amicable R. Kelly who offers a refreshing change from their over-extended soap-opera, the club-able and aurally haunting "Pretty Woman" (owww, his wiz sounds good on the hook!!!), the forward "Show Me", "Beautiful" where Ronald hits the high note, and Ronald's best performance on this collection "Heaven Hooked Us Up". "Gotta Be With You" gets honorable mention. Thankfully, Ernie gets to rip the Fender more often this go-'round, after being horrendously slighted on their 2003 chart-climber, Body Kiss.

This has to be one of the best Isley Brothers CD to date and it is one of the best CD that has been released since Usher's confession or Maria Carey's Mimi. It is well developed and I could not find a song on this cd that I did not like. I really feel that this cd was worth buying.

I love anything the Isley Brothers does and love Ernie Isley's guitar solos. This CD is primarliy him singing songs of his professon of love for/to his new wife; no so much "baby makin music".

I have been a huge fan of the Isley Brothers for as long as I can remember. My mother and older siblings always played their music. I have almost everything they recorded before they began working with R. Kelly and various rappers. I'm sorry, but, I just don't care for this new Ron Isley and I wish he would drop the "Mr. Bigg" thing as well as R. Kelly.

The Isley brothers used to be a class act, and now they just seem to be catering to a much younger crowd in order to sell cd's. To all you "young heads" who like this new style of the Isleys'. If you want to hear some real baby making music, check out the classic (the real) Isley Brothers; "Voyage to Atlantis", "Groove with You", "Footsteps in the Dark", "Between the Sheets", "Hello it's Me", "For the love of you", just to name a few. Their songs were about love, not lust, bling, material things, or "loose women". The Isley Brothers lyrics have without a doubt taken a turn for the worse since the influence of R. Kelly and other song writers/producers have "taken them over".

There are a few songs I like on this cd, but, I can't say I'm thrilled with the purchase of this cd.

Baby Makin' Music indeed...let's see how many are born after this album! But seriously this a really good album. This is real music at it's best. Other artists should take some notes from The Isley Brothers. This album has a smooth feel to it. You can play it from beginning to end and repeat again. My favorite track is Just Came Here to Chill. Definite recommendation.

Despite his recent troubles with the government (namely...the IRS), Ron Isley has continued to supply us with knockout singles and albums for decades. Celebrating their 50-year anniversary in the music business, the Isley Brothers are a true example of having nothing to prove to anyone. Who doesn't own at least one Isley Brothers album? Countless artists have either sampled their music or covered their songs for their own projects. I remember a time when I practically played Beautiful Ballads every day! Even the whole Mr. Biggs moniker isn't distracting because Ron Isley is probably the coolest 65-year-old walking the Earth. The man can get away with almost anything...when it comes to music. The latest effort is Baby Makin' Music, a title that many people have labeled the group's countless hits as being. This album is no different.

There isn't anything to say negatively about this album. The first single "Just Came Here To Chill" has the ability to please die-hard fans as well as newcomers. The song incorporates the new Isley sound and couples it with the old school feel that most are familiar with. This style continues on songs like "You're My Star," "Pretty Woman," and "Forever Mackin'." R. Kelly makes an appearance on the sultry "Blast Off."

Fans of the classic crooning won't be left disappointed. "Show Me," "Gotta Be With You," and "Give It To You" could be placed smack dab in the middle of any self-made mix cd of classic Isley slow jams. They close out the album with the smooth playa cut "Heaven Hooked Us Up" and the equally suave "You Helped Me Write This Song." You have to give the Isley Brothers their props for being in the game longer than anybody else out. They are truly living legends who deserve any and all lifetime achievement awards that are out there. Do yourself a favor and pick up Baby Makin' Music...and start popping out those little rascals!
