I'll come straight to the point. I am a die-hard Beatles' fan and have been for twenty five years (funnily enough, to the day - I bought my first cassette on 25th February 1985). This of course influenced my decision to buy this album - along with my love of the city of Liverpool.

So what's Liverpool 8 like?

On first listen, I would use words such as "ok","passable" and the obligatory "Beatlesque". Delve a little deeper, listen a few more times and you will even find yourself humming some of the tunes, because it is pretty easy listening. And there's the rub. Aside from the title track and possibly "Pasadobles", there isn't that much to this album. I'm not sure if I would call it disappointing, but "Ringo" it certainly is not.

I would have also preferred there to have been more songs based on Mr Starkey's memories of his great birth-city, after all, he named the album after the legendary locale.

Liverpool 8 is pleasant, melodic and perfecty acceptable. I only wish Ringo had put a little more effort into making it an album that would act as more of fitting tribute to the city from it draws it's title.

Im glad to see the previous reviews on here saying good things about Ringo and this Album, Its a Shame he dont really get the credit he deserves, I beleive hes a very underated artist.
His songs are always catchy and Simple, and he sings from the Heart
I Have all Ringos Cds and Pleased to have this Latest one in my collection, On the first Listen, its really good, Ringo Starr is a Living Legend and Still selling music after 40 years, How many of todays artists will be saying that 40 years from now? Not many if any i bet.
Thank you Ringo V

Format: Audio CD
Some artists are so difficult to review and Ringo is certainly one of those. I had a great deal of trouble with Liverpool 8 because of my pre-conceptions that poor old Ringo just cannot sing. On first play I hated this.

Then I began to consider the obvious love that had gone into producing the album and on second and third play began to enjoy it. Strangely it probably reflects on the back life of a Beatle more accurately than anything released as a solo album by the other three members of the Fab Four. Of course that doesn't mean that it's a good album but Ringo has
had a damn good try. There's a mix of up tempo numbers and ballads and passing references to Harry Nilsson and the other Beatles and much more. And of course at the heart of it all is Liverpool - which somehow has been named the 2008 European City of Culture. It is undeniably true that Liverpool has a greater heart than any other English City.

So where does Ringo fall into all of this? The title track looks back at his past and its opening from a lyrical point of view is excessively corny. Poor old Ringo seems to insist on rhyming everything so we have his mate Rory rhyming with Factory.

Interestingly the lyrics did make me google Madryn Street in Toxteth where Ringo was born. There are plans afoot to pull the street with its typical Coronation Street style houses down. Quite rightly there is a strong lobby of heritage supporters attempting to at least save Ringo's former home at number nine. I hope they succeed. It is all too easy to rip up the past without giving a thought to the affect it can have. Apart from the poetry Liverpool 8 is a strangely decent song even if at one point we do get the words "We were number one and it was fun (yuck).

The fortunate thing Ringo Starr has going for him that many other artists don't is that his fans' expectations aren't that high. His lyrics are, for the most part, simple couplets with an occasional surprise thrown in and he fully understands the limitations of his singing ability. Although he has his regulars that buy anything he brings out (myself included) his sales can now be measured in the hundreds (of hundreds), which is a shame as `Liverpool 8' is his best release for some time. If you're reading this you probably have an interest in Ringo so you'll more than likely already be familiar with the autobiographical title track, which leaves eleven more to look at.

To get the worst out the way first, `Tuff Love' is probably the weakest song on the CD being neither here nor there and really does sound as if it's just a filler: it's only saving grace is the backwards guitar ending, reminiscent of `I'm Only Sleeping'. The penultimate track, `If It's Love That You Want' is an equal throwaway but it'll no doubt please some listeners.

`Harry's Song' finds Ringo singing about his mate Harry Nilsson in the laid back nightclub crooning style of that artist and just about manages to pull it off. The inclusion of words such as `moon' and `June' hark back to an earlier age that this could even be a song for Ringo's stepdad, Harry. Whilst the opening of 'Gone Are The Days' sounds like Ringo's take on 'Tomorrow Never Knows' complete with ethereal vocals, it soon develops into a decent, if short, head nodder, complete with Beatlesque 'ooooos' in the background. Like most albums from Mr. Starkey, he isn't reticent to acknowledge his past and has a habit of referencing such.
