Amazing album!

"I'm a fan of classic/progressive/hard rock stuff (Led Zeppelin, Rush, Pink Floyd etc.) and Yello's 80s albums are the only machine-based music that really impresses me.

Flag isn't exactly like anything else I've heard. It's ridiculously attractive album and "Third of June" is one of the most powerful rock songs I've heard. Yes I said "rock" because this album really rocks. In different kind of way though.

This is also the only album that EVERYONE I have played it loves immediately. It's amazing that this wasn't a HUGE hit when it originally came out. Stella, Flag and You gotta say yes... are Yello in their prime.

Personally, I don't care about the new techno stuff at all, they should never abandon this original and experimental stuff they did in the 80's. This album is amazing, I own about 3000 CD's and this easily goes to my top 10.

"This album is a good follow-up to "One Second". Very similar in sound, although this record is more thematic in the concept of a race. Flawless musicianship, perfect mixes, unbelievable clarity and a barrage of well-written, well-contrived material adds up to another great album by a great band."
Unique and magnificent music

"My first meeting with Yello was through this disk - I've seen The Race's clip on TV when the CD came out, and the second the clip ended I was on my way to the nearest music store to by it.It was my first foreign (as in not Israely) disk, and in the years that passed since I've bought all of their CDs.I think this is the band's best record - it has a variety of styles, most tracks are like nothing I've heard before (something like the first Enigma disk in that respect - something new and different), and at almost any time there's a track that would fit my mood.It's not as electronic / techno as earlier or later disks - though not very strikingly different - so it's the one I like to recommend friends the best.For some reason this record isnt very well known - most people know Bostich, and identify the band with that song and it's style. I find this somewhat narrow view regretable - Yello is more than just Bostich-like music."
