This is a follow-up to 1992's 'Time Takes Time' and continues where that left off with some good upbeat beatley tunes such as 'One', 'What In The World' and the rocky 'Mindfield'. Ozzy Osbourne guests on the title track 'Vertical Man' and George Harrison plays a brilliant slide on 'King Of Broken Hearts'. Perhaps there was no need to remake 'Love Me Do' and the over-sentimental 'I'm Yours' should have been forgotten? Even so, you can't help but appreciate this good honest offering from the former beatle. Best of all, Ringo sounds like he was having a really good time doing just what he likes best - rocking and drumming! Worth a listen.

In musical terms is a very good album that have been underrated .It have a very good sound and fantastic songs.This isn't a rutles album bettered as the review above said, it's much better than that.
King of broken hearts is a beautiful song, what in the world have energy and groove to spare,I was walking have a lot of rythm and is a lot of fun.
For me this record is a gem and I have listened to lots and lots of records more pretentious and less fun than this one.

This is one of Ringo's best albums in many years (since Time Takes Time, 1992), and I definitely recommend it to any Beatles fan or to anyone who likes 60s style English music. Many of the tracks are lovely, but Harrison's slide guitar on the beautiful "King of Broken Hearts" is certainly a highlight. There is also a curious participation by Ozzy Osbourne in the chorus of the title track is also to be noted. Simply put, a nice album - go for it!
