4 1/2 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

Amidst the turmoil created by strong competition from superb studio albums, the Isleys landed a smash hit in 1975 with The Heat Is On, an album which achieved double platinum status with its collection of perfectly written numbers. Powerful, funky volleys ("Fight The Power"), gyrating riffs as a launch pad for harmonious vocals and a creative solo ("The Heat Is On") go their own way, which is also apparent in the bell-like, airy ballads that swing along tastefully – quite without the sugar-sweet strings so popular at that time.
