    Sounds exactly like every other song he has recorded in the past 40 years, honestly....

    Quite frankly, you could say that about most artists. Why you be pickin' on Ringo?

    One of his best IMHO...his singing is right on target for this tune, even if they did put a touch of autotune on him. nice composition too.

    You could take that as a compliment to Mr. Starr that his music sounds exactly the SAME...

    afterall... Paul's sounds a lot worse, IMO....

    Basically, Ringo is Ringo.. he doesn't evolve... but he doesn't release music that sounds like the drizzling s****s either.

    I never actually learned to play very well
    I like it. He still can't sing but Ringo was never about the singing anyway. I could listen to more of this. I can't say the same for Kiss My Butt or whatever Macca's recent album is called. Which I was enthusiastic about at first but it turned tedious for me VERY quickly.

    To even have the opportunity to sound the same over 40 years seems like quite a feat. I'm trying think of a drummer, any drummer, who has even HAD a 40 year career as a singer after his noteworthy band broke up.

    Phil C? Don H? Not even close, and not half as fun as Ringo anyway!

    Typical Ringo...that's a GOOD thing! The video kind of creeped me out, like some low-budget stalker/slasher movie!
