The only other album I have by them is the 'Pink Album' actually it's called LP2 (but they call it that because the cover is Pink) . It's pretty good, not nearly as accessible or frankly as good as The Rising Tide.
Thanks for the correction. I couldn't remember if it was a compilation or not.

I'd suggest stopping while you still can.

I heard someone once mention that in their opinion Ringo had the best post Beatles song of the four... anyone know what they may have been referring to?

Ringo didn't write Imagine or God, so I don't know what it could be.

My guess would be "It Don't Come Easy." It's a good song for sure, but a pretty long way away from being the best post Beatles song of the four of them.

Like, a LONG way.

Sounds like something I may have written.

It is indeed "It Don't Come Easy", and it was a great melancholy bit of optimism from Ringo. I think he was the only one of the lot who could write about the four of them without being too bitter, post breakup.

Soft Bulletin. It's as highly rated/regarded as Yoshimi, and I probably slightly prefer it over Yoshimi personally. Both are very enjoyable though.

I'd also suggest The Soft Bulletin, then At War With the Mystics. From there, you could explore their back catalogue, which is vastly different from the three previously mentioned albums. Clouds Taste Metallic, Transmissions from the Satellite Heart, and In a Priest Driven Ambulance would be my suggestions.

If you're feeling really ambitious and have 4 CD players, pick up Zaireeka. It's a 4 disc set that's meant to be played simultaneously. Or, if you look around online a bit, people have put together stereo mixes that combine all 4 discs into one.

That sounds... complicated.

It is.

I don't have the 4 disc set, but I did download the stereo mix. It's a good listen. And, Zaireeka is the album that began their current sound with layers, synthesizers, and the generally experimental vibe.

What about Cat Stevens? Does he have any songs that are better tahn Father and Son?

And Elvis Costello... don't wanna commit to an album, but what are his best songs?
