A Timeless Classic 5 Aug 2005
By Phillip N. Sosa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of all the Isley Brothers recordings "Masterpiece" is one of their best, and least appreciated, works ever created. Only penning one song, "May I?", they selected some of the finest works of music at that time such as the Phil Collins tune "If Leaving Me Is Easy". Other "timeless classics" include "Colder Are My Nights" and "Come To Me". Unfortunately after almost two decades as the famed "3+3", this would be the original trio's last recording as the eldest O'Kelly would pass away a year later from occlusive coronary artery disease.

The Title Says it All! 2 Jun 2000
By Reginald D. Garrard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Recorded shortly before the untimely death of founding member O'Kelly Isley, "Masterpiece" is an album that attempts to present the rhythm & blues/funk group in a different light. It almost succeeds with this collection of mostly ballads. I feel that the group and their label at the time were trying for crossover success but didn't quite make it.
That withstanding, the album is noteworthy for the following tunes: "May I?" "My Best Was Good Enough," "If Leaving Me is Easy," "Colder Are My Nights," and a cover of the Charlie Rich hit "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World."
Although the production relies a little too heavily on the strings (Hey! It is called "Masterpiece!"), the "soul" of the group comes forth with the superb vocal work of lead Ronald Isley.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THIS ALBUM IS BY FAR THE BEST COLLECTION OF LOVE BALLADS THAT I HAVE EVER HEARD. IT TOUCHED MY SOUL WHEN I FIRST HEARD IT MANY YEARS AGO. RON ISLEY'S WORK IS REMARKABLE AND WILL BE HEARD FOR ANOTHER DECADE TO COME. THE TRACK "MY BEST WAS GOOD ENOUGH" IS WONDERFUL. THE WHOLE ALBUM IS AN EXPRESSION OF ULTIMATE LOVE.

EXCELLENT ART A MASTERPIECE 12 Aug 2009
By Ian Moodie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This silky ISLEY BROTHERS album is a true MASTERPIECE!!.It is the very essence,the heart and soul of the ISLEY BROTHERS. All the songs express true emotions. A perfect album from start to finish, from "MAY I" my personal favorite here, similar to the now classic "BETWEEN THE SHEETS". "IF LEAVING ME IS EASY" is so good, so different, "COLDER ARE MY NIGHTS" a real standout song, I love it!!. "COME TO ME" another favorite, "RELEASE YOUR LOVE" to "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL",so pleading. With nine songs total, it is an amazing listening experience, a perfect collection of fine ballads. One of my very loved ISLEY discs!!.I strongly recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of the ISLEYS, you would become easily very attached to it,as I have!!.who needs gold and diamonds?.MASTERPIECE is my prized possession!!!!.
