A Good Listen
on 25 October 2006
Any follow up album would struggle after `Ringo' and indeed this does, although it still has four really good songs, five if you count Back Off Boogaloo, one of the CD bonus tracks.
As noted by another reviewer, Ringo has the knack of choosing songs which suit his voice and character. Goodnight Vienna, Snookeroo, and especially the hilarious No No Song, are examples where it's hard to imagine another voice singing them. Although Only You doesn't really suit his voice, it seems that the song's a joke - check out the film clip, in which Ringo has a trick arrow through his head!
Only one ex-Beatle on the album proper, John, but other special guests include Harry Nilsson, Steve Cropper and Elton John. However, it's almost certainly George's great guitar work on Back Off Boogaloo.
Not as good as Ringo, but that doesn't matter. If you liked that, you'll like this.
