CD REVIEW: Brooke Fraser "Flags"

Flags (Amazon MP3 Bonus Version)
This new album is a huge step up from her debut album. Brooke Fraser has hit it out of the park with her new album, combining simple pop music with clever lyrics, relatable content, and outstanding instrumentation. The album starts off with "Something In The Water," and upbeat poppy love song that could be her defining moment. The two songs, however, that define the album are right in the middle of the mix. "Coachella" and "Jack Kerouac" are unconventional, catchy, and make the album fun and exciting. Aqualung makes a guest appearance on "Who Are We Fooling" adding yet another layer. Brooke Fraser is a talented young artist that comes into her own on her new disc, making an incredible name for herself in the process.
