Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Flags, the third record from Brooke Fraser, was inspired by Fraser's move to Los Angeles. It's a well-worn singer/songwriter album, with songs that take their cues from the Lilith Fair movement and L.A.'s burgeoning Hotel Café scene. Fraser knows how to craft a sturdy pop hook, and there are many of them here -- particularly during "Something in the Water," which became her first Kiwi chart-topping hit in October 2010. Elsewhere, she stretches her boundaries by focusing on ambience and atmospheric textures, even evoking a young Fumbling Towards Ecstasy-era Sarah McLachlan during "Ice on Her Lashes."

    Brooke is flat out AMAZING.

    Her first and second album were absolutely incredible. I saw her live in Atlanta for the first time fall of 2010, for the Flags tour. She's played easily 13 songs. I was BLOWN AWAY. Her voice is so soothing and you can truly relate to her songs. With this particular album she wrote more about "characters" that she had met over the years, more so than songs about herself. Man, Woman, Child, or Adult - YOU NEED THIS ALBUM. Flags is my favorite album of all time. I've played it everyday, multiple times since it was released. It's just that amazing.
