5.0 out of 5 stars Ringo Rocks! (And Rolls)
Although not all solo albums by former Beatles have reached the same standard as their earlier days, RingoRama is one of the best. If you like the Beatles then you will definitely love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ringo Rocks! (And Rolls), 27 Nov 2003
Although not all solo albums by former Beatles have reached the same standard as their earlier days, RingoRama is one of the best. If you like the Beatles then you will definitely love this album. The collection of songs are varied and incredibly well written. They are performed with the humour and skill we would expect of Ringo Starr. This album features an impressive number of guest artists who join Ringo to perform on one or more tracks; artists such as Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton and Timothy B. Schmitt, to name but three. As for the tracks themselves, the poignant tribute to George Harrison, Never Without You, is a beautiful and touching song about a dear friend. Elizabeth Reigns is a celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee. Each track is cleverly written, both musically and lyrically and you will want to listen again and again to be able to appreciate them fully. Finally, I defy anyone not to sing along to I Think, Therefore I Rock ‘N’ Roll!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Ringo's Best in ages, 19 April 2003
This review is from: Ringorama (Audio CD)
Ringo Starr has often been ignored by the music press but this album shows what a talent he is. There is not a bad song on this album and his trbute to George Harrison on the track Never Without You is particulaly moving. Not since his album Ringo in the 70s has he produced a such a strong record. To all lovers of the fab four you won't be disapointed!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best, 16 May 2003
This review is from: Ringorama (Audio CD)
Ringo's music hasn't had really huge success compared to Paul's, but I think that Ringo Rama completely blows Driving Rain out of the water. The tracks that stand out for me are 'Missouri Loves Company', its got a catchy tune and great lyrics. Then of course there's 'Never Without You', Ringo's tribute for George. This is one of the best songs on the album for me being a Beatles fan. And that song alone is reason enough to get the album, but you'll probably end up liking a lot of other songs. 'Imagine Me There' is another really, really great song. Its very simple Ringo type lyrics. Very beautiful song, probably the best one on the album for me. Ask Questions later is another good one, nice lyrics again.
All in all, a really great album, the best I've heard of Ringo. Its a must for anyone who likes any of Ringo's music or the Beatles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Album from Ringo - Best Ever!?, 22 May 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Ringorama (Audio CD)
Continuing his strong run of recent studio albums (Time Takes Time, Vertical Man etc), Ringo is back with “Ringorama” – a brilliant album full of strong melodies and lyrics! Ringo’s vocal performance is excellent and the music is catchy, fun and occasionally serious. The songs come in a variety of musical styles and the performances throughout by Ringo and his band are excellent. Is this Ringo’s best album? Quite possibly. There will always be the legendary “Ringo” album from the 1970’s to live up to – but this is definitely his best since, and I’ve no doubt that many will think that “Ringorama” is his best ever! Whatever you may think, you will certainly be singing those songs all day! I can’t wait to play the album again!

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Pass This By, 22 April 2004
This is one album where one song makes it worth the admissionprice......Never Without You is a class tribute to George from Ringo...avery strong melody, almost as if George had helped out here! And thewords are very moving....Ringo of all the people on the planet right nowknew George the best.....I think Paul would be up there too but until hecomes up with a song, this is about the most heartfelt tribute to Georgeyou could wish to find. This track is up there with Ringo's best 10songs, the emotion of It Don't Come Easy, the melody of Photograph, thevery personal lyrics of Early 1970.....plus the added guitar fromEric....this is basically an ESSENTIAL track in any Beatle lover'scollection.
As for the rest of the album, well it's mixed it has to be said.
English Garden is charming, with a delightful reference to the Wingsclassic Let 'Em In....other tracks are quite pleasant for the most partbut in my opinion this band produced stronger material on VerticalMan...it's probably a stronger collection than the pretty disappointingChristmas album....but that's not saying much...but BELIEVE ME when Track5 comes on you will be Blown Away (to paraphrase George's fine 1979 songor Jeff Lynne's classic song from 1989).
Trust Me.
