    Lite ribbon by LiteGear has what you need. Yes, it costs more but their stuff has a cri of 95 and is pretty damn bright. I've been using it for several years at work.

    While I agree 100% that there are superior metrics to CRI, if the OP limits their LED tape search to brands they can find CQS or RA2012 data for, their options will be pretty limited.

    If on the other hand you accept that above 90 cri will be "pretty good" 80-90 will be eh and below 80 not so good you at least have a starting point.

    If you're needs are more specific, CRI won't get you there, but in the absence of better information, its at least worth considering as an indicator.
