    Ringo has given us expertly produced and pensive meditations on the bigger pictures. [May 2021, p.87]

    Well-meaning and positive, ‘Zoom In’ is the aural equivalent of wishing somebody a ‘Happy Hump Day!’ over email, while wearing a daft grin. For all its flaws, this is a hard record to hate.

    Okay, Ringo hasn’t made his masterpiece, but then again, a guilty pleasure can be worth savoring in itself. As most of his Starr-struck admirers generally conclude, it can be rewarding to zoom in albeit momentarily, rather than opting to completely tune out.

    Consistency is a virtue in this case: maybe Starr does little more than deliver what he promises, but he does deliver, and that reliability is a comfort in times of uncertainty.

    An overstuffed pillow of an EP that seeks to calm all of the world's aches but just ends up sounding schmaltzy and smothering.

Not bad or anything; it's just okay. The best song is "Zoom in Zoom Out," which is a simple boogie-woogie type song that has lyrics reflecting the state of the world. My least favorite song from this EP is "Teach Me to Tango."
