Product Description

Product Description


Some 20 years into their career, the Indigo Girls continue to work the same protected turf they staked out with their first album, building on their strengths--gorgeous melodies, teardrop vocal blends, and the occasional poetic insight worth jotting on the back of an envelope. But on their ninth album, their irritating habits remain as intractable as ever: must every romantic spat be framed against saving the whales (okay, the shrinking water supply) and the fight for clean air? And why not put all that randy energy to good use? On "Tether," a Joan Osborne-fronted song that would have aired on progressive rock stations in the '60s and '70s, the three need to kick it up a notch and set a match to those dueling, gasoline-powered guitars. Yet when the chips are down, both Emily Sailers and Amy Ray turn out inspired songs, especially "Something Real," in which a long-awaited reunion with a friend leaves Sailers full of regrets, and "Cordova," a haunting eulogy in which Ray's choices in lust and liberal causes start to blur. --Alanna Nash

Having been witness to the Indigo Girls beginnings in and around the Atlanta music scene since 1989, I have grown to respect and follow every aspect of their career. While true, some of their songs may not appeal to everyone (like all musicians), they have never sacrificed who they are and the direction their music is headed. With the release of their ninth album, I can say as a true Indigo Girls fan, that is probably their best piece of work yet. For everything they are as accomplished musicians and story tellers, what has always appealed to me about their music is the power of the lyrics. They are masters of musical imagery and lyric.
Amy has always been edgier. Her songs a bit darker, her delivery harder. Amy has often made me want to shout to the world about injustice and move toward change. Cordova, is an achingly haunting song, harking back to the work she did on her solo cd Stag. If you don't have it yet, get it. She has forged new ground, seeming to soften a bit, but maintaining her edge. Dairy Queen and Heartache For Everyone both have less of the electric edge that she is known for, but that has been replaced by infectious hooks and phrasing. My personal favorite though is Perfect World. A song that moves like the water it talks about, and has the best guitar part since GO.
Emily, on the other hand has been called the romantic and the softer of the two. Over the years, many of her songs have brought me to tears, filled me with hope and made me yearn to sit down and hear every story behind every song. Her work on this cd is nothing short of amazing. I never thought she could surpass Power of Two, but she has come close.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to the basics - and it works beautifully May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Since the Indigo Girls first came onto the scene, they've under gone a long and sometimes not-so-careful progression. Building on beautiful harmonies, smart lyrics, and simple guitars on their debut albums, they eventually added electronic instruments and moved to a more produced sound. It worked on some albums, but on others it fell flat - either the songs weren't juicey enough, or they preached so much, and made reference to such obscure moments that it was tough to reach out and embrace the lyrics or the songs. But.... they've hit upon a winning formula on this album. The sacharin sweet melodies and voice of Emily and the raw and edgy stylings of Amy have been blended oh so well. No longer does it sound like they drew up a list of songs needed for an album, split it down the middle, and then headed in their own directions to whip some up. The songs on ALL THAT WE LET IN are very much team efforts, with both girls sharing vocal duties and very often, swapping roles. Emily takes the lead on some faster songs, and Amy takes the slower ballad. Surprisingly, it works great, and when one of them is on lead vocals, the other isn't far behind, always lending a backing harmony. Run through the album the first time, and you might say "There's a few songs on here that will play well, but the rest are too plain". Give it 2 more listens (like I did) and you'll be hooked - it takes a careful ear to pick out and begin to appreciate the subtleties of their body of work on this album. Here's to hoping they keep this going on the next album...

5.0 out of 5 stars love at first listen April 16 2004
By Katie
Format:Audio CD
I, like most of the other people who've already written reviews, am a huge Indigo Girls fan. I can't claim I've been a fan since they started because I was probably being born right around that time. Maybe that discounts everything else I'm going to say for some people, but to me that just points out how transcendingly appealing this music is. I like it, my fifty year old mother likes it, my little sister likes it, my best male friend likes it.
I can understand the comments that say that this CD is overproduced. I'm a big fan of the very spare early music too, and I started getting a little nervous with the slick sound of the Become You (which ended up growing on me after all) and this is also very produced in the same sort of way. But, sometimes that can be really interesting and good. Besides, they've stayed true/consistent lyrically and melodically unlike lots of other people (cough, cough...I'm talking to you, Jewel) and they haven't crossed the line where the special effects ever truly overpower those great attributes.
My favorite song is the title track, which is completely beautiful. I also really love Free In You, Come On In, Fill It Up Again, Heartache For Everyone, Perfect World. Ok, I guess I just named about half of the album. And most of those were Emily songs. Basically every song on this album is worth listening to over and over- Amy's songs just make you work a little harder for the affection. But, yeah, Dairy Queen is great and her voice sounds really beautiful on Cordova.
On a side note, the cartoon-y album theme upped the "hipness factor" for some dubious indie rock/alternative types I know. Haha. I guess that's a good thing. I highly recommend this CD, but would definitely encourage it as part of a collection that includes earlier albums as well.

What makes the Indigo Girls tick? Apparently, it is way more than acoustic guitar. In fact there are tracks on this CD with no guitar at all. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars "Become You - Part 2" Not Quite as Good but Fine Fine Fine
I have the feeling that the writing/recording sessions for 'Become You' might have been among the most prolific periods for the Girls. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best, but still some good songs
First off, I would have given this 3.5 stars if that were possible.
A new Indigo Girls album is no longer the cause for celebration it once was, but it's still cause for joy. Read more
