Music critic Jim Fusilli takes a listen to the new Isley Brothers record, Body Kiss, available on the Dreamworks label. The Isley Brothers have had many hits since the 1950s, including "Twist and Shout," "This Old Heart of Mine" and "Who's That Lady." Now they have a new record of romance and soul produce by R. Kelly. Fusilli says the album is best when it sticks to seduction and works least when it treats women as pampered objects.
