  • Summary: Ingrid Michaelson's latest release includes previously unreleased songs, demos, covers, and live recordings, and a portion of the album's sales go to Stand Up to Cancer.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. With proceeds going to cancer research, Be OK is more than a stopgap recording; it cements Michaelson’s status as a conscientious musician whose chops are equaled by her worldview.
  2. A nice teaser to satiate fans between proper full-lengths.
  3. The most charming cuts are the perky title track and Michaelson's wistful, ukulele-equipped take on 'Over the Rainbow.'
  4. Arriving in 2008, Be OK furthers her Norah Jones-gone-pop approach with 11 tracks.
  5. While the title track is a bright, finger-snapping highlight, most of Michaelson's ditties are fit for kindergarten teachers.

    a Sappy song, that make you happy or smile. nice lyric, and nice flow on the album, makes you feel that you need to listen all the track, not jump-in and jump-out at all the track. Expand

    Anyone who's seen her live knows this is a MUCH better representation of her than her debut. I look forward to another proper full length (and the next time she comes to my town). Collapse
