Product Description


Three years after the experimental and not-always-successful Come on Now Social, the Indigo Girls return to a more traditional framework with the acoustic-based Become You. A deft melding of folk, rock, and pop--and laced with Latin and soul around the edges--Become You gets to the heart of what Amy Ray (the rocking half) and Emily Saliers (the gentler half) do best: chronicle the complexities of love and socio-sexual politics from a feminist viewpoint. While the seductive and full-bodied melodies leave plenty of expanse for the duo's gauzy, hand-in-glove harmonies, the majority of the repertoire here carries an undercurrent of dissatisfaction and anxiety, whether about the outcome of a rocky love affair ("Moment of Forgiveness"), the still-extant racism in the South ("Become You"), or the ultimate fate of the Mexican women who fight for change with the Zapatistas ("Nuevas Senoritas"). Poignant, thought provoking, and beautifully crafted, with rapt attention to the interplay of instruments as well as voices, Become You finds Ray and Saliers back in top form and as relevant in 2002 as at the start of their 15-year career. --Alanna Nash

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a nod! April 20 2006
By C. Preston TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
While I can't say this is my favorite Indigo CD....it isn't a waste of money to buy it. Frankly speaking I don't think you can waste your money buying any of their CD"s.
The songs She's Saving Me, Collecting You & Hope Alone are my favorites...Amy's voice is awesome on She's Saving Me. Moment of Forgiveness is recognizable Indigo harmonies also.
Buy it ....check it out.....you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Pearl from the Indigos Feb. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Indigo Girls have made another great album. The mood of this album is a bit more quiet than on most of their earlier albums. No rockers this time. But the songs are great as usual.
Amy Ray has really grown as a songwriter. Most of her contributions to this album are very strong. "Moment of Forgiveness", "Become You" and "Nuevas Senoritas" are among her greatest songs ever. "Starkville" is also a great song. Amy was the rawer half of the duo; she still is, but her songwriting has really matured with this album.
Emily Saliers' songs are top-notch as usual. 3 great ballads this time; "Deconstruction", "Hope Alone" ( in the same vein as "Southlands in the Springtime") and "Our Deliverance". Emily's 3 other songs are fine too, of course.
Great production by Peter Collins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting better all the time Feb. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am an Indigo Girls fan and own several of the albums. I bought this one as soon as it hit the shelves and was not disappointed. My favorite songs are "Moments of Forgiveness," "Deconstruction," "Become You," and "Yield." I also like "Starkville," partly because I went to college there and I can just imagine the Homecoming Queen and her entourage coming riding into the Holiday Inn or Budget Inn or whatever. I haven't been able to figure out the meaning of "Starkville," but the others are beautiful, poignant, and insightful songs about relationships. "Yield" is about finding the balance between courage and learning to yield. Absolutely beautiful. These women are great songwriters as well as muscians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Become You ~ Indigo Girls Feb. 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm so thrilled with this CD. It is the traditional IG I first fell in love with. I like the rockier stuff too, however, this is the way I like to hear them best.
They have added some additional instrumentation that I haven't heard before from them, and I love it, love it, love it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amy makes the quantum leap Dec 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've been an Indigo Girls fan for years, but I wasn't as fond of their last album, COME ON NOW SOCIAL. I felt it lacked focus and was community-oriented at the cost of quality. BECOME YOU, though, is a different story. It's always fun to hear artists return to their musical roots, but the Indigo Girls did more than that on this album. Amy Ray, in particular, took a quantum leap in songwriting skill on this record; songs like "Become You", "Moment of Forgiveness", and "Yield" are miles ahead of anything else she's ever written. Amy's increasing prowess is visible in Epic's selection of her songs for radio. Before this, it was always Emily Saliers compositions like "Closer to Fine" and "Galileo" that became singles, while Ray's songs found more of a cult following among IG fans. Now Amy's getting the A&R nod, not that Emily's songs are slouching -- I thought Saliers took a similar songwriting leap on SHAMING OF THE SUN a few years ago, and now they're both writing at a terrifically high level, making BECOME YOU one of the best Indigo Girls albums in years, if not the best ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets better with every listen! Dec 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
I liked this album from the beginning, but it truly gets better every time I listen. I love "She's Saving Me"--it is beautiful. "Deconstruction" also hit a chord. This album ranks up there with Strange Fire, also my favorite album, with a number of truly poetic, lingering songs. This is the Indigo Girls at their best--there is a maturity in their voices and lyrics, while they maintain a freshness with the music. Wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Delightful and New! Aug. 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
...This album does sound different from their other albums but that is what I really like about it. I wanted to hear a different sound from these guys and I really like how they played around with some new sounds. I like the Norah Jones Bluesy sound on "You've got to Show" and I LOVE the banjo and bluegrass sound of "Bitter Root". I would LOVE for these guys to do more songs that have that kind of sound to it. I LOVE the song " She's Saving Me". I think the words are beautiful and nostalgic. I don't know who "she" is but I think it's Mother Earth. I also love "Deconstruction" and although a previous person thought the lyrics were sub-par I think they are brilliant. I love the lines that say....
"We're sculpted from youth, the chipping away makes me weary
And as for the truth it seems like we just pick a theory
The one that justifies our daily lives
And backs us with quiver and arrows
To protect openings cause when the warring begins
How quickly the wide open narrows"
I also love the song Collecting You. I thought the lyrics in that were wonderful as well. I don't think you need to be as poetic as they were in a song like "Ghost" to say something powerful and meaninful.
Buy this album. You won't regret it. I love it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! May 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this album I didn't really think it could compare to some of the girls previous works, but after a few weeks of owning it, it absolutley love it! It's not nearly as dramatic or political as some of their earlier works, but it's a great light hearted piece.
I would highly recommend giving it a try.
