EDITORS’ NOTES

This is how you do a comeback. A decade separates 2006’s tricky reunion album Studio One and All Saints 3.0, but Shaznay, Melanie, Natalie, and Nicole wind the clock back even further here. Red Flag recaptures the cool and effortless energy of their 1997 debut, again fusing R&B front with their mercurial, weightless pop. “One Strike”—a mid-paced banger with hard-won lyrical bite—sets the template beautifully, “One Woman Man” snaps and stretches like a rubber band, while the title track emerges from its rhythmic chrysalis a shimmering, “Pure Shores”-style pop beauty.
