Largely ignored by record buying public and dismissed by critics when released in 1992, but this CD sounds as good as anything Ringo had done since 'Ringo' in 1973. Stand out tracks are the single 'Weight Of The World', 'Don't Go Where The Road Don't Go', 'Don't Believe You' and 'Runaways'. Production duties shared amongst Jeff Lynne, Don Was, and Peter Asher. Also features Brian Wilson on the track 'In A Heartbeat'. The drumming sounds great on a generally upbeat selection of songs.

This is truly a Ringo record to rank alongside his mid '70s triumphs! Admittedly in 1992 it may not have sold too many copies but us Beatles fans know just how good this record is. It is incredibly Beatley in its feel and production and the songs are for the most part outstanding. And they fit Ringo's style perfectly. Which is an important comment as there are plenty of fine songs out there, which do not.
The opening single 'Weight Of The World' is superb and provokes memories of a time when Ringo Starr records were listened to, and mattered. It has a Beatle style production, courtesy of Jeff Lynne and would certainly have warranted inclusion on a Beatles album circa 1992. Which of course was and is pure fantasy. But none the less valid for that. Ringo's music is after all infinitely more appetising when it has that Beatle quality to it.
The second track 'Don't Know A Thing About Love' is an immensely uplifting number. 'Don't Go Where The Road Don't Go' is another great song, this time inspired by his late '80s realisation that there may be more to life than pills and booze. 'Golden Blunders' is quite brilliant, especially the backing vocals from Andrew Gold (who was responsible for that great 1978 single 'Never Let Her Fade Away'). 'All In The Name Of Love' is a gorgeous romantic Ringo song which will probably infuriate a few, if they ever heard it! But I think it is great. 'After All These Years' is OK but not too worthy of further comment. Thereafter the album takes off and travels to somewhere in the cosmos, such is the brilliance of the last three tracks. 'I Don't Believe You' is simply inspired, possibly the best Ringo track ever. It is of course Beatlesque and contains harmonies which really make this song, which is already catchy and would probably have been a monster hit had it been released 20 years earlier. 'Runaways' is as good, with a really moving lyrics and pulsating guitar solo to boot. This is Ringo's version of 'She's Leaving Home', at ten times the tempo!
The final track is also memorable, not just for its melody but for its timeless lyric too. 'What goes around...comes around.' Don't we know it.
This was the long awaited Ringo comeback and at the time was wonderful proof positive that not only McCartney was capable still of producing the goods. It was and is in fact one of the best Beatles solo albums of the latter years.

Great, great return of Ringo's front line. To me this is one of the best àlbums of Ringo in the same way of the first recordings after the Beatles period. A very powerful and melòdic àlbum, that give energy and positive feelings since the first listening.
