Ringo Starr: Ringo

Alan Betrock, Phonograph Record, 1973

IT's DEFINITELY worth having, that's for sure, but the main problem with Ringo is that it's uneven. The Beatles rarely, if ever, made an uneven album, and Ringo has now joined the rest of the Beatle spinoff LPs with a product that is a pastiche of greatness and mediocrity, of vibrancy and staleness...if you will, of the sublime and the ridiculous.
