iTunes Review

New Zealand native Brooke Fraser's literate lyrics and wistful melodic bent show an increasing maturity, while her sweet, slightly aching voice conveys fragility with great underlying strength. Fraser moves beyond the introspection of 2006’s Albertine to paint more diverse portraits and scenes. Her musical palette is rich and diverse — “Jack Kerouac” percolates with Afrobeat guitar lines, providing contrast to the glistening arctic tones of “Ice On Her Lashes.” A rush of happiness animates “Something In the Water” (a head-over-heels love tune) and “Coachella” (a buoyant celebration of unity through dance and music). Love of a more complicated kind is explored in the tormented yet melodically graceful “Who Are We Fooling” (a duet with Aqualung's Matt Hales). Fraser snatches hope out of pervasive darkness in “Crows & Locusts” and offers a character sketch of a lonely woman in “Betty.” Her Christian outlook shines through in the moody, Daniel Lanois-like title tune. Taken in sum, Flags is an exceptionally intelligent, emotionally resonant work in the best singer/songwriter tradition.

Upset to say i'm upset with this album

Musically this album is a work of art. Brooke is a musical prodige with a vocal range & capabilities most artist would kill to have. But this album is emtpy & disconnected. She accomplished her goal to please the sale charts & media, but the thing that suffered is her gift. This album is too much a part of the music trend right now; it sounds like any other artist easily drowned out while walking through Urban Outfitters. It is as if Brooke was striving to be somebody in Flags. Her voice & musical genious is a God-given gift, and a lesson that I learned just a short year ago is that any gift I have is from God & is to be used to bring Him glory. After all that is our ultimate purpose in life, it is what we were created for-to bring glory to God.

This is what great music should be like

Brooke melts musical diversity and lyrical creativity into one gorgeous disc. If I had to be deserted on an island, and could only take ten albums, this one would be coming with me.

one feel

Im a fan of Brooke.....but this cd has the same tempo and feel through the whole thing,
After awhile I can't tell the songs apart.
I know she's trying to be deep, but towards the end I want to hang myself !
