PopMatters
Live It Up is the album where Ronald’s love life is falling apartand the rest of the band tries to dance him out of his blues. Highly recommended. […]

Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
Here the Isleys cemented their direction for the rest of the decade: the title track (a single) debuted Ernie’s no-nonsense funk drumming and Chris’s burbling synth and clavinet, paving the way for the following year’s Fight The Power. There are a few ballads augmented with blazing Ernie solos, including Midnight Sky (another single) and the mindblowing, incandescent Ain’t I Been Good To You. […]

The Isleys were very good at what they did during this period, fusing the fuzzed rock guitar with their more traditional soul pop. This is without doubt a pretty good album on many levels and for me a remembrance of a special time. They would only pass by briefly before heading off back on their journey, ships in the night. […]
