Oh, there is a cute new photo of Ringo in the book, but it was really hard to get a good photo, this is the best I could muster:

Nice one, deadgrandma!

edit: I liked track 6 though it was 90 seconds too short, I liked track 7 though it was 90 seconds too long and Heavy Metal Girl is ok. I already forgot all the other tracks.

Yeah I really wish track 6 was longer. It really reminds me of something like Poltergeist. But I could listen to track 7 all day. Mostly id say this project resembles SG. To me that's my favourite style Ringo so im cool with it.

I really love this, you guys. It's like everything I love about Ringo rolled into one.

I can't help but think Ringo's next solo album will be similar to this:
Mostly Big Band, Samba, Bossa, and Jazz tracks.
Some up-tempo rock songs.
Some electronic songs.

Basically like SG but more focused?

The horror of having a vocalist with no charisma. What Did U Say sounds like drunk karaoke night for Uni students.

Looking forward to the SR cover versions on the next tour.

Frecklegirl needs to make a new topic for this in the product reviews forum so we can bicker about it there. But for now, let me say my favorites are 喪失 and 别れ 1940. I'm curious at to what the official English titles will be.

Don't hold your breath, the last time SR composed for stage (Tamatebako), that music was pretty much lost forever. :\

maybe it's because i haven't listened to a japanese album in a long time, i must say this album is very refreshing and impressive to me, I wasn't even a fan of shiina's showtuny stuff or saito neko neither, but this works for me, love the soil and pimp session flavor on here,

9/10 for me on first and second listen,
was loving track 5 and 7, but now i just threw on track 4 and got a happy feeling
