BBC Review

Everything Is OKis Al Green's second album for Blue Note, following 2003's I Can't Stop. Once again, it's a collaboration with arranger and co-producer Willie Mitchell, a relationship that stretches right back to their classic run of 1970's albums on the Hi label.

The opening title track develops over a mellow disco-funk vamp, setting the tone for most of what follows. Green's voice is understandably paramount to the proceedings, with each song slowlyraising towards aspirited climax. The vocal chorus of Rhodes, Chalmers & Rhodes maintain a call-and-response dialogue, supporting their leader's exhortations.

The Royal Horns and The New Memphis Strings should theoretically provide a rich spread of textures but, in reality, the album's productionsoundsthin, with the band mixed so democratically that there is little light, shade or space. Even Green's vocals have a curious boxed-in acoustic, sounding like some kind of phasing effect was employed.

The Reverend'stestifying is always tightly controlled, but the drama of his voice is diminished by the dullness of the musical setting. There are a few brief instrumental flourishes, with harmonica fills on "I Can Make Music",and afruity saxophone solo enlivening "Be My Baby". But by the time "I Wanna Hold You" arrives, ten tracks in, the formula is becoming very repetitive.

This album suffers in comparison with Solomon Burke's Make Do With What You Got, released in the same month. Burke's sound may be a hybrid of rock, funk and blues - but it always acts to enhance his stentorian emissions. In attempting to appeal to a wider audience Green has opted for a lightweight disco and soft pop-soul vocabulary,watering down the impact of what was once one of soul music's most distinctive voices. --Martin Longley

4.0 out of 5 stars Al Green ' Is' Soul 30 Jun 2005
By Dawn
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a beautiful CD. Al Green whose amazing and soulful voice conveys every possible emotion, returns with another classy bumper pack of the best. Reverend Green took another path in the eighties and nineties, and his music became watered down and diverse. However, this album will delight and appease frustrated fans, who remember his glory days, Sha La La, Tired of Being Alone,,, Lets get married and more.
'Everythings Ok' is just what it says. We are glad to have you back Reverend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 11 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
He's back....the real master.
Along with Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield, Al Green is my fav singer.
I can't believe how cheap this album is!
I quite liked his last album, but this is much better.
A real return to form-and a return to a time when Soul music was all about brilliant musicians, superb production and timeless music.Not the sort of gimmick inspired rubbish you see now.
Courtesy of Willie Mitchell, what you get is lush instrumentation, a big bold sound, great songs, and the sort of feel you only got when Leroy hutson, Marvin Gaye et al were in their prime.
Al Green IS talent...true and defined.
A brilliant album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Return To Form 6 Feb 2007
By Brian Martin VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I didn't feel his last effort was as good as the pundits made out yes there were some good tracks but a good few not so good tracks as well. I'm glad to say this effort is a lot better with a 70s feel to it maybe that's due to Willie Mitchell being back on production duties and the album has the feel of Explores your mind.

A welcome return to form. 4 stars

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok - but not great 26 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
After the success of "I can't stop", the Reverend Al is again reunited with Willie Mitchell for a stab at recapturing the genius of the early Hi albums. It's almost there - Al's in fine voice as ever, the songs are quite good - but it fails to hit the mark, partly because it lacks the sublime drumming of the great Al Jackson, whose sparse grooves made a huge contribution to the early records. Sadly Jackson died in 1975 and in my opinion neither Green nor Mitchell have since made a truly great record. Good - but not great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly OK Al!!!! 2 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a follow up to 'I Can't Stop' the man Al Green is certainly back to his best in this masterful album, a real gem. A personal favourite has to be the devine 'Perfect To Me' which is quite wonderful.
Well done AL and keep creating A1 albums as always!
