Isleys most underrated album 26 Dec. 2003
By Ramin A. Mazaheri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Some of the tracks on this album are simply as good as it gets. I can never believe how more people don't know about this album - it is so raw and visceral. Ronnie is awesome and the music is as funky and especially as rockin as the Isley's ever got. I have a dozen or so Isley albums and this album, though perhaps just the tiniest bit uneven because there as so many styles so well represented here, is probably the one I cannot do without (although 'Beautiful Ballads' is a must have too). I'll break it down:
Get into Something - 7 minute uptempo, and then down, and then back up again, funky rocker, smokin
Freedom - what a great song - great lyrics, total groove
Take an Inventory - the most chauvinistic song I've ever heard - ya gotta love it - awesome again
Keep on Doin - this song shows the impeccable taste and style of the Bros. What this song really is is just a cover of James Brown's, via his backing band the J.B.s, "the Grunt", as funky and tough an instrumental song as there ever was. The Bros. came up with some killer lyrics and Ronnie just belts it.
These 4 songs alone make the album a must have. They are so killer when heard in row.
To be honest, 5 is a fine song, Ronnie is almost unnervingly coy, and 6 is good too, slow and sweet - O'Kelly, who always seems a touch sad (and who is really often indiscernible from Ronnie) sings as usual exceptionally well here - but they get back to kicking butt with song 7. Song 8 is another weepy but beautiful unrequited/longing for love song sung by O'Kelly.
Song 7 - If He Can You Can - a super hard driver where Ernie's wah work is just astounding. A great, great song with as usual, phonomenal singing (assumed with Ronnie and O'Kelly). There's a "fire in the kitchen" alright. Ronnie's wailing is so urgent I can only think of their song "Testify" with Jimi Hendrix back in the day (mid 1960's) where Ronnie sounds so vital and alive. If you've never heard "Testify" track it down - phonomenal track where the lyrics led this listener to believe that Jimi has introduced the Bros. to acid (Ronnie sings, "You wouldn't understand - cuz yer plastic, man!"). Sidenote: "Testify" was memorably covered by Stevie Ray Vaughan on "In Step" (or "Texas Flood?") in an absolutely stunning guitar instrumental - hey, it's a funky, funky song that was way ahead of its time.
Beautiful - just what it sez; some of that Hendrixesque, melodic guitar by Ernie with beautiful singing.
Bless Your Heart - This song is so crazy/goofy: here the Bros. rip themselves off. They took the exact music of "It's Your Thing," note for note, and just changed the lyrics to "Bless Your Soul". It's a good song, kind of - though you've heard it before - but it's worth listening to just because it's so funny and ballsy that the Bros. "covered" themselves.

I love this album. Ernie and Marvin (bass) really step to the fore on this one and this album is really, really smoking at times and only in a couple instances does it slow its breakneck pace, very effectively though. I am always surprised when "Isley fans" I meet don't know this album. Released in 1970 it is so timely both in music and lyric. Ernie and Marvin are obviously huge Jimi Hendrix/Billy Cox fans (who isn't) and the singing is, well, it's Ronnie Isley and the Bros. No joke - this is a great, great album.
The Isley's Get Into Something 30 April 2010
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
1970 was a key year in the development of funk music. Not only was it one of James Brown's big years in that vein but also the year that began the saga for War,Earth Wind & Fire,Santana,Kool & The Gang,Funkadelic and many of the funk greats that would define the decade. Not only were the Isley's not new to funk by that point but this was actually their third full lengh album in that style,following up 1969's It's Our Thing and The Brothers: Isley. So in that respect they can join up with James in the way that they were early funk innovators,in the late 60's before it really had a huge chance to take off as it's own genre. This album finds the Isley's continuing in the same musical vein of those previous two recordings. The seven minute + title track is definately a high point,a chunky funk masterjam that ends with one of the best drum breaks this side of JB. The next three cuts are all in the same compulsive funk style and on a couple the lyrical focus is a key element. "Freedom" illustrates an endless list of the rights that allow us....well to have freedom. In the modern world listening to the very politically incorrect lyrics of "Take Inventory",which makes The Rolling Stones "Under My Thumb" sound like Helen Reddy's "I Am Woman" in it's implication that it is fine to hurt a womans feelings as long as you can control her. Whatever you think the fact this type of thinking was fairly typical among many American men at the time the song was recorded seems to often get forgotton.So.....moving on. "Girls Will Be Girls" is a more playful variety of funk. There are a couple ballads on this album as well."I Need You So" and "I Got To Find Me One" both follow something of the orchestrated sweetness of the Isleys during their Motown years and provide an interesting contrast to the heavier funk on the rest of the album and also an important sense of transition."If he Can You Can" and "Beautiful" provide more of an uptempo soul/pop flavor from the nature of the other uptempo songs on this album and,in keeping with the funk tradition of spinning new jams out of older ones "Bless Your Heart" is a complete re-write of "It's Your Thing",to the point where the only difference between the two songs are the lyrics. True it seems to take that concept to the extreme but it's a great way to end the album. This is an excellent album but the best part is the future would only get better musically for the Isley's as the decade progressed as they would join right up with the other funk luminaries of that era as important contributors to the genre.

Not their Best" 24 Sept. 2009
By Isaac Dickerson III - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of those albums that was in between a great one and a developing one. The first 4 records are the standouts, but after that the music goes into a sleeper. That's ok though, because once you get past this one, there would be great things to come.

just okay 4 Sept. 2007
By C. McKoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is some of their earlier work. The CD is just okay to me. The only stand out in my opinion is the Ballad "I need you so" My mom used to play this one day and night. It was the B side to freedom which is a hip hop classic.
