YELLO / Flag (1988)

The funky Cuban rhythms and electro oddness that was once daring and imaginative teeters on the brink of self-parody.  There are nine tracks and three of them are variations of the same song.  That’s too much repetition, guys, even if you are having a laugh at your own expense some of the time.
There are some stand out tracks that you’ll likely skip to each time but they only serve to highlight how lacklustre the remainder of the album really is.

Songs of Note: Of Course I'm Lying; The Race
