Product Description

On their eponymous 1989 debut, the Indigo Girls followed the lead of such greats as Laura Nyro and Joni Mitchell. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers pumped social conscience and self-esteem into ringing acoustic anthems like "Closer to Fine" and "Land of Canaan," just in time to catch the rising tide of feminist rock. Occasionally rough and a little too self-conscious, the songs on this CD resound with a profound sense of honesty and raw emotion. Crisp guitar work and haunting harmonies became the stock-in-trade of this powerful duo of "girls with guitars." L.A.

If you are new to the Indigo Girls this would be the place to start. If you have any of their other albums you are missing out if you don't own this one. I started listening to this in college and am constantly rediscovering it. It plays road-trip well. It has sincerity in spades. It's a damn fine listen.
There are many standouts here with few skippers. "Love's Recovery," gets a little bogged down in weepiness, but the others are sing along folk coffee house with a twist of butch, folky medley of melodious melody. Perhaps the finest moment in the album is when Michael Stipe from R.E.M. breaks in oh so subtly in "Kid Fears." The interplay between the three voice is one of the finest things that have been laid down on vinyl or whatever CD's are made of.
Don't miss out on this wonderful listen. You'll be wearing Levi's with the pocket chain wallet attachment and singing to your hears content. Peace out brethren and sistren.

As someone raised on rock bands like The Who, The Beatles and KISS, my exposure to the music of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers was extremely limited to what I overheard on FM radio. Three years ago, I took a risk on the Indigo Girls' mainstream debut. What a reward!
Yes, half of "INDIGO GIRLS" is generously loaded with time tested staple such as "Kid Fears," "Tried To Be True," "Love's Recovery," "Land of Canaan" and the anthemic "Closer To Fine." But, don't be content to gloss over the other songs. They're just as impressive. One facet of the Indigo Girls' charm is the contrast between Ray and Saliers' voices. This is magically captured in two of my favorites, "Secure Yourself," and "Prince of Darkness." In "Blood and Fire," Ray reminds us that you don't need a loud electric guitar to produce tone and intensity. Bottom line: "INDIGO GIRLS" is a treasure chest and each song is a jewel. This album is one of my all time favorites.
The Indigo Girls seldom appear on television. They've never appeared on the cover of "Rolling Stone." They simply refuse to bow to a shallow music establishment. This is one reason why together, Ray and Saliers have created some of the best music of the last two decades. I hope they never change.

With their first major label release, the Indigo Girls come on strong with an outstanding batch of tunes, watertight harmonies, impeccable musicianship, and flawless production. And entering the folk-rock music scene on the successful heels of R.E.M., Tracy Chapman, and 10,000 Maniacs pushed their sales over the million mark and earned the duo a Grammy for Best Folk Recording. The eponymous release kicks off with the upbeat jangle bounce of "Closer to Fine," a modest hit, all-time fan favorite written by Emily Saliers, and a tune the Girls still play at every concert. A particularly fascinating point is that the Indigo Girls never write songs together, but they compliment each other perfectly. The difference in styles becomes immediately apparent when the more dark and brooding Amy Ray steps up. Her remarkable contributions include "Secure Yourself," "Kid Fears," and "Blood and Fire," spiritual ruminations of life, love, pain, and faith which bury themselves deep inside your core whether invited or not. Weighting the opposite scales, Saliers offers a tender balance to Ray with two beautiful ballads, "Love's Recovery" and "History of Us." (Ray's "Land of Canaan" was once a ballad, but then she heard The Replacements and it became a bit of a rocker.) Chiming in with musical support are Hothouse Flowers, Luka Bloom, and fellow Georgians R.E.M. This self-titled release captures the passion of their youth with voices that are a little cloudy, untamed, and raw, but the power that surges through them suggests a maturity far beyond their years. The same can be said of the songwriting - sheer poetry. To attempt examinations of these songs would not do them justice, for the layers of meaning and emotion unfold best upon repeated listening.

I had been working as a counselor at a summer camp in 1989... it was a resident (sleep over) camp and I only had one night a week that I could go home (Dallas at the time). I was driving on my way home when "Closer to Fine" played on KDGE (94.5 FM, Dallas). I had never heard anything quite like it. I nearly had a wreck getting to a payphone so I could call the station and ask who it was that I just heard.
I've bought a lot of CDs from one-hit-wonder bands before, so I looked for a single first... since there wasn't one, I bit the bullet and bought the CD. It was hardly a one-hit wonder! Wow, what a great debut CD! One penetrating song after another, all featuring the awesome harmony of the great voices of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers... in tandem with dueling guitars, 6-string & 12-string, and a few banjos to boot.
They have a sound truly unique to them alone. If you've heard such hits as "Closer to Fine" on the radio and really liked the sound, you can get more of that same awesome harmony on this CD.

I am a 16 year old girl who has been listening to the Indigo Girls for 7 years. I LOVE THEM. All I have to say is, they are goddesses. I won't say this is my favorite of their albums because I LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE... but, it is certainly one of the best. This was the first IG album that I received, and now I own the complete collection! One cannot help but fall in love with the sound of the Indigo Girls. Through their songs, they have helped me through so much and I must say that anyone who struggles in their lives will appreciate the painfully honest and sincere lyrics. Words cannot express what their music means to me. "Closer to Fine" "Blood and Fire" "Prince of Darkness" "Tried to be True" and "Loves Recovery" are probobly my personal favorites on this particular cd, and I would reccommend them to anyone, regardless of musical taste. If you have any sence at all, you will buy this and/or any of the other incredible albums available from Epic Records.
