FLAG is a compendium of James Taylor's various styles. As always, melodic hooks, catchy phrases and precise musical turns abound. On "Company Man" Taylor takes another look at his uneasy relationship with fame and the music business. "Johnnie Comes Back" is a dark little rocker about some particularly nasty goings on. While he was in the rock neighborhood J.T. even manages to prance and preen a little in his danceable raveup of the Beatles' "Day Tripper." "Rainy Day Man" is revisited from his first record and the classic Goffin-King "Up On The Roof" is covered with a new vigor as James makes it completely his own. Especially moving is the sad and beautiful "Millworker," written for the Broadway musical "Working" and based on the Studs Terkel book of the same name.
