Strongest Red Flag yet
Carter Hanson | Valparaiso, IN United States | 05/23/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Reynolds brothers (Red Flag)feel Caveat Emptor is theirbest album to date--and as a long-time fan from the Naive Art/Danceperiod, I have to agree. Caveat Emptor has less of a dance feel than Naive Art, but it's more complex musically and ultimately more listenable. "Sundown" is a fantastic opening track, pulsing and moody with some of the most interesting Red Flag lyrics. Perhaps even better is "Nevermind http," the most disco-like track on the album. Instead of plaintive lyrics about love, "Nevermind http" is a witty social commentary which, among other things, pays tribute to the Pet Shop Boys. If you've liked other Red Flag releases or enjoy synth-pop in general, I would definitely recommend this CD."

"OK, well ... i have been a fan of the Flag since the release of Naive Art in 1989, and they've never failed to impress. I consider this CD very impressive. Certainly less danceable than Naive Art, and also a lot moodier than their previous "Lighthouse" CD. Nevertheless, there is a LOT of solid material here.High points: "Sundown", which has a pulsating beat that for some reason almost makes you think of Robert Miles's "Children", but without the dancefloor trimmings. "http://nevermind" is VERY VERY clever, a soliloquy of the modern music scene, how music these days is distributed more and more on the net ("It's even connected to my radio")... there's even references to bands we all know and love ("PSB cos they're never boring, and Vince and Andy, well hell, they're always touring") "Collide" is depeche mode style minimalism, with lush strings ... and the trials and tribulations of a volatile relationship, I swear this song would not be out of place on DM's "Black Celebration".There is just too much to mention here, in 1,000 words ... but this is a solid piece of work. Definitely get it if you're into the dark Depeche Mode style sound."
Some where in between the old and the new Red Flag sound

"This albums is great. I truly love it, maybe not as much as "Naive Art", but it has a different mood to it. It is definatly not as dancable and as happy as "Naive Art" but it is very melodic and will put you on a state of TRANCE. Great songs like "Sundown", "Love Lacks Gravity", and "Nevermind Http" are very TRANCEY and MELODIC. Other songs like "The Web", "Hollow", "Cliche", and "Alive" will leave you mezmorized from their soft, and dark musical beauty and fantastic lyrics.
FUTURE OF SYNTH-POP IN FULL AFFECT. Chris and Mark Reynolds deserve big recognition in today's music scene from their great contributions to synth-pop world. All songs are written, produced, and mixed by the two brothers under their own label, PLAN B records."
