I enjoyed Ringo 2012, it was short (less than 30 minutes) and sweet. I definitely had the "Beatles" type undertones that I love. I think Wonderful might me my favorite track on the album, but I enjoyed the other tracks as well! Ringo fans will love this album and so will many others! Give it a listen!
