Even though the album isn't exactly what you might expect from an ex-Beatle, it is full of beautiful arrangements that, for the most part, compliment the songs and the artist perfectly. It also features some great contributions from the famous arrangers. In a way that also brings in the fact that a lot of the time when Ringo goes to his famous friends for help, he succeeds in issuing something that is first rate. Just look at the the eponymous third album where he gets help from all three of the other ex-Beatles, as well as Marc Bolan (T Rex), and the list is endless.
This in no way is a put down of Ringo, but rather the fact that he can bring out top rate material, and that it usually means him having "a little help" from his friends.
