Rev. Al Green makes a come back album with ‘Everything’s Ok’. Al Green is a living legend of soul who has an unmistakable voice that has pretty much touched everyone at some point. Classics like ‘Take Me To The River’ and ‘Let’s Stay Together’ will put Green in the milestones of musical history.
‘Everything’s Ok’ is classic Al Green really. Still sticking to the funk formula the music has that big band sound made so popular from the
Isley Brothers. The horns and full band capture the throwback times of 70’s. There are ballads there as well that suit Al’s voice so well. Tracks like ‘Perfect To Me’ and a cover version of Joe Cocker’s ‘You Are So Beautiful’ fit into that Motown soul vibe.
All in all ‘Everything’s Ok’ is another slice of Al Green that shows the man can still do it and fans of him may well be pleased to hear some of the same Green they’ve always known. To others it may seem a tad nostalgic considering the music is nothing original. I guess it’s sweet soul music that we’ve heard before so if you want another dose ‘Everything’s Ok’ could do.
