5.0 out of 5 stars Indigo Girls Rock June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is probably my favourite Indigo Girls album ( along with Rites of Passage ); not because it's among their most hardrocking, but because of the playing and the great songs. Lots of energy and emotion. Great backing from drummers john Reynolds and Jerry Marotta and bassist Clare Kenny. Emily Saliers demonstrates what a great gutarist she is - both the electric and the acoustic.
A lot of prominent guest appearances too: Rick Danko and Garth Hudson of the Band, Sheryl Crow and Joan Osborne join in on vocals
Amy's rocking "Go" sets the scene right from the start.
With Emily's ballad "Soon Be to Nothing" the mood calms down for a while.
The catchy country tune "Gone Again" comes next. One of Amy's best songs on the album.
With Emily's "Trouble" things begin to rock a again. Great vocals. The serious "Sister" is a classical Amy Ray type song .
"Peace Tonight" is a highlight. Catchy and optimistic.
"Ozilline" written about/to Amy grandmother is a traditional type tune. Ozillene actually introduces herself in the beginning of the track.
The next two songs are written by Emily; "Cold Beer and Remote" is by far the better. Catchy melody and funny sarcastic lyrics. Could have been a hit record. Sheryl Crow joins in here!
"Compromise" is probably my least favourite - hardrocking punkrock-type of tune.
"Andy" is another fine Emily ballad.
Last track is Amy's indignant comment the the execution of Faye Tucker; a very moving number.
Why Emily's beautiful "Philosophy of Loss" was only included as a hidden track is really a mystery to me. Along with "Cold Beer and Remote Control", "Peace Tonight" and "Gone Again" this is an outstanding song.

I never thought Shaming The Sun was as bad as everyone else made it out to be. So it stands that I didn't think 'Come On Now Social' was the redemption everyone else thought it was. That said, however, this effort has some GREAT stuff! And it may be Amy Ray's best outing...'cept maybe 'Become You', which is even better than this disk!
Much has been made of Amy's opening track, 'Go'. It rocks, it kicks ...and it starts the CD off with a bang. But 'Gone Again' is the most infectious song of the lot. Great melody easy and fun to sing. 'Ozilline' is probably one of Amy's finest songs. Great accessible lyrics that are universal yet not cliched (or if they are, they're used in unique ways).
'Sister' is haunting and 'Compromise' blows the foam off your speakers. Its a dry run for her stint with the Butchies a year later, which culminated in her raw solo album. Many have ballyhooed the vocal coda of 'Faye Tucker', but I think it is every bit as haunting as the guitar effects on 'Sister' and fits the dark mood of the song well.
So there you have it, great stuff from Amy...one of her most consistent efforts. This LP, and its follow-up 'Become You', plus her solo disk, Stag represent a highpoint of Amy's career.
For Emily, whose lyrical dexterity usually carries the duo's CDs, this effort has some hits and misses. 'Trouble' is grating to listen to. Its yet another yep-I'm-gay-whatcha-gonna-do-about-it song. I respect the subject matter but its been addressed on other outings and more successfully (try 'Its Alright' on Shaming the Sun). 'Soon to be Nothing' is standard Emily, nothing more. Same with 'Peace Tonight'. Then she hits two homers with 'We Are Together' and the superb 'Cold Beer and Remote Control'.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Y2K INDIGO ALBUM Oct. 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The publicity before the album's release certainly had me worried....'less harmonies'....'a more experimental sound' but thankfully my concerns have proved to be largely unjustified. The Indigo Girls sound has certainly progressed since 1997's SHAMING OF THE SUN - but the old magic still remains. Yes, the harmonies may have been diluted and it's certainly not another 'RITES OF PASSAGE', but there are many delights for Indigo Fans througout the cd. My one complaint would be that while the songs are excellent as individual units - they don't seem to gel as cohesively together as on past releases. One conclusion that may be drawn from that is that both girls own distinctive musical styles are becoming more and more diverse. It makes you wonder - do they even like what the other writes? However, it's worth the price of the cd alone to hear the usually placid Emily Saliers rocking out on the song TROUBLE. Chrissie Hynde- watch your back! Some folkie fans may be disappointed - but this is not a band who would be happy churning out the same album every 2 years. And I for one, am happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars You GO, Grrls! Oct. 1 1999
Format:Audio CD
Well.
I must say I'm not in the least bit disappointed. This CD hasn't left my stereo, nor has the tape left my car stereo, since I got them. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers continue to branch out and evolve with breathtaking ease and skill. CONS picks up on where "Shaming of the Sun" left off, and improves on it vastly; the expanded instrumentation is more integrated, the musical styles more diverse, the lyrics as in-your-face and thought-provoking and intelligent as ever. Amy handles the infectiously upbeat bluegrass feel of "Gone Again" and "Ozilline" with as much ease as she does the punk-rock drive of "Compromise" and "Go." Emily, as well, proves her versatility, with contributions ranging from the lovely ballad "Soon Be to Nothing" to "Peace Tonight" and its horn-enhanced groove to the surprisingly aggressive rocker "Trouble." "Sister" is Amy at her brooding best, a haunting, visual tune; "Cold Beer and Remote Control" is Emily's lighthearted look at a slice of American society. This isn't the starkly acoustic duo of some ten years ago, but that's okay by me, because artists evolve. And if the Indigo Girls' evolution continues to produce albums as engaging and exciting as "Come On Now Social," I'll be there for the rest of the ride.

Quite simply, an amazing disc. Musical groups need to evolve, and that's what Indigo Girls have done in this album, and in every album since the start of their career. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well-balanced CD. Best since "Rites."
After a slightly dissapointing "Shaming of the Sun," Amy and Emily return to their ecclitic mixture of political, whimiscal and old fashioned rock and roll. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet, They are keeping up with changing times
This is possibly one of their best albums yet. With new age rock, the indigo girls are sounding better than ever, yet their same messages still persist. A must buy.
