Album Review: 'The Icon is Love'

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Barry White; Genre: R&B

White's throbbing, quasi-disco '70s seductions introduced autoeroticism to the Top 40 with unprecedented candor. This release keeps the breathing heavy, but emphasizes funkiness over his trademark string-laden spectaculars. And his bottomless baritone guarantees satisfaction. B
