This is another great album by Ringo Starr. It is lighthearted, uplifting, and even bouncy at times. Longtime fans will not be disappointed. I think this is more of a return to true form than his last few albums, which I liked but just not as much. I could listen to this album all day and, so far, having listened to it several times today already, plan to do just that. It grows on you. Favorite songs so far are "Rory and the Hurricanes" and "Postcards from Paradise." Does Ringo really sing I just "want to hold your hand" in the "Postcards from Paradise" song? Yes. Yes he does. And it works. It is just delightful. Thank you Ringo for continuing to make wonderful music. I hope there is more to come.

One thing I've noticed in being such a musically interested person is receiving artists creative mode of intent. Sometimes artists have such enormous musical talent that they almost beg to stretch and broaden all the time. Some are pretty much the opposite and expectations are low. Ringo Starr is an artist that I would place in the context of firmly established. He obviously has nothing to prove. Just still really enjoys making music as one of two surviving Beatles with other musician friends he's accumulated over the decades. And that is what the core of this album is all about from start to finish.

"Rory And The Hurricanes" is a straight up nostalgic pop/rocker to get the album started off while "You Bring The Party Down" brings a raga like world psychedelia flavor to more melodically probing numbers. "Bridges" is an upbeat,slow crawling uptempo Caribbean pop tune. "Right Side Of The Road" has a thicker blues flavor while "Not Looking Back" is a sweet piano ballad. "Bamboula" is a clavinet driven zydeco number while "Island In The Sun" brings in the entirety of his current All Star Band,along with Todd Rundgren for a steel drum laden reggae piece. The organ based peppy pop of "Touch And Go" and the more bluesy soul of "Confirmation" come up to the albums conclusion with the guitar pop/rocker of "Let Love Lead".

Overall this is a wonderful Ringo Starr album. It has Joe Walsh,Dave Stewart,Steve Lukather and of course the likes of Greg Rollie and Todd Rundgren on one particular cut. All of these musicians have worked with Starr at various times in his career. The overall flavor is similar to the last Ringo albums I heard: one of a well oiled,comfortable non genetic family of instrumentalist.

Ringo's latest is a pleasant, bouncy trip through time with the drummer who was with the greatest band in history. This album is a notch or two above the previous as Ringo lets a few hands in the mix. The lyrics are fairly basic although you still hear Ringo-isms as he can turn a simple phrase that back in the day would catch Lennon's ears and result in a new composition for the band.

For those of us who have been along for the ride the past 50 years, it is really nice to find some time with the legend that reminds us of a kinder, gentler world that we knew. It's a sweet memory.

Just want to add that this is a terrific percussion statement, nicely done Ringo!!

As I was listening to Ringo's new album, it brought me back to the days of my youth, when his songs were all over the radio. It was a simpler time, to be sure, but any one of the songs on his new album could have been a top 40 hit on the charts. I'm a little prejudice, as i knew and listened to Ringo's music before I even knew he was a beatle. This was when I was around ten years old, in 1974.
His singing and drumming still sound fantastic....incredible timing, with those fills only Ringo can do, and the recording has them upfront, loud, crisp, and strong, making him sound more vital than ever. Time certainly has been more than kind to the world's greatest rock drummer! And certainly, one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Can anyone name another drummer who can sing, had many top 40 hits, made movies and could act, was a film director, and writes his own songs?
Just for a few small comparisons to ponder...possibly Keith Moon achieved Ringo's level of fame as a drummer, and he was arguably the more "inventive" drummer. He even appeared in a few films. But could he act? Or sing? He never had any solo hits...his one album (with lots of help from famous musicians) was an abomination. And he is probably the only drummer you can compare to Ringo in terms of popularity. The Beach Boy's Dennis Wilson was not as talented a drummer (and did not drum on much of their music), but could sing lead, also wrote many fine songs, and even acted in a film...but his erratic career ended way too soon. There are many other singing drummers, including: Micky Dolenz (who could sing great and act, wrote songs...not a bad drummer...but not accomplished by anyone's standards)...Levon Helm...Peter Criss...Don Henley...Roger Taylor...and the multi-talented Phil Collins.

Postcards From Paradise is a great album. It's what Ringo fans expect from him, but the tracks here are new, mature and well crafted. My personal favorite tracks are Rory and the Hurricanes, Not Looking Back and Let Love Lead. Among those three, Not Looking Back is a true gem, the best track on the album. There is lots of great guitar work. Ringo's songs to me are somewhat country-like: they tell stories. I received my copy today and have already played it all the way through twice. A very pleasant listen. You'll not be disappointed. I hope Ringo's got at least a couple more new ones in him.
