Editorial Reviews

Independent artist Ingrid Michaelson's 2008 release Be Ok, a benefit album that will include previously unreleased songs, demos, covers and live recordings in addition to the title track (produced by Stacy Jones and Bill Lefler - Ronnie Day, Meg & Dia, Plain White T's). A portion of the proceeds will go to Stand Up To Cancer, an organization created to urgently move cancer research forward with the help of the public. She embarks on a national headlining "Be Ok" tour in late October 2008 and she designed a "Be Ok" necklace to be sold at all tour stops and online, donating all proceeds to SU2C. Her new song "Be Ok" and its video are part of the SU2C campaign.

Most of Michaelson's songs have multiple vocal parts and together, they create a complex harmony superior than any loop peda or Mac effect. This is apparent in "The Chain". The song is three part vocal canon that is a powerhouse of emotion. Dependent entirely on the vocals for impact, the piano is subtle enough to accompany without detracting from the vocals. It really takes three singers to pull this one off. This record is full of pop gems.

I've been a fan of Ingrid's for over a year now, and I have to say this is her best album yet!!!! The perfect blend of original songs, live recordings, and covers, this CD is a must have for any Ingrid fan or follower of the "coffeehouse" genre. Ingrid's songs are both healing and inspiring. Out of all of her great songs, my favorite tracks are "The Chain", "Lady in Spain", and "Keep Breathing". This CD is also a small taste of the fun and incredible experience of seeing Ingrid live in concert. Get yourself a copy today, and buy it as a gift for others, as a portion of the proceeds go to a great cause, Stand Up to Cancer. And don't miss the chance to see her live in concert!!!! Also be sure to check out the new holiday CD The Hotel Cafe Presents...Winter Songs which features an original duet of Ingrid with another favorite, Sara Bareilles, called "Winter Song". A portion of that album's sales goes directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

This is Ingrid's best album yet!!!! The perfect blend of original songs, live recordings, and covers, this CD is a must have for any Ingrid fan. Ingrid's songs are both inspirational and moving. The best songs on the CD are "The Chain" and "Keep Breathing". Get yourself a copy today, and know that a portion of the proceeds goes to Stand Up to Cancer. I have seen Ingrid in concert and it was so much fun. She had me laughing in between every song. I would highly recommend checking out her Be OK tour when she is in your area. I promise you won't regret it. Make sure to get this CD and Boys and Girls. They are both wonderful.

The record came in time and was without physical damage prior to opening. Upon opening, I found that the record was blue (a fun little surprise) and I eagerly put it onto my record player. The record itself doesn't play perfectly; around the outer edges, it skips around songs at the same points consistently. I don't have this problem with any of my other records, so I'm convinced that it's the record itself that is having the problem. The songs on the center of the record play wonderfully so I still give merit for that.

The music on the album is great, but I wish I could listen to the songs on the outer portion of the record without skipping.

The melodies are good, but the song lyrics can be quite depressing. I didn't really hear the lyrics of BE OK until I listened to it a couple of times. Sounds like a happy song, but it is actually a song of a very depressed person with some hope.

I read a review that said it was sappy goodness, but I am not so sure it qualifies as that. Some of the songs are positive, but at least half come from what appears to be a depressed place.

Ingrid Michaelson has such an angelic voice. She has a voice that sounds as if it comes with no effort at all and never feels forced. She is young, but sings with the heart of an old soul. Ingrid... thank you for sharing your talent with the world. I am going to Be Ok just because of you.

I love this artist but the production is just average. Ingrid is in a much higher class of performer than the average startup musician and while the songs are good, the recording leaves much to be desired.

Bought this on a whim after recently seeing her on Shark Tank. I am so glad I did. I love the sound of her voice and the personal expression she gives it. Interesting music and love the ukelele. Unique.
