When you challenged me on Gone Troppo in that other thread I ignored you, as I know you're not too much into George. But I feel I have to go into bat for Troppo now. There are a couple of duds on it, for sure, but some wonderful classics. The cover I Really Love You, That's the Way It Goes, Greece, Gone Troppo, Unknown Delight (a song to Dhani, which beats the heck out of Lennon's Beautiful Boy, which is too sentimental and Macca-esque for my liking), Dream Away and of course Circles, resurrected from 1968 - written in India, and one of the songs demo-ed for the White Album. The singing and playing are just first class, resulting in an album that feels full of sunshine and acceptance.
Choose Love consists of songs that feel very "assembly-line" to me. As I said, Ringo needs to chuck Mark Hudson now: every song of Ringo's feels as if I've heard it before. And the artifice of quoting It Don't Come Easy, and Beatle lyrics has worn VERY thin. You wonder if Hudson and Starkey had their brains engaged during this project.
