Making Promises - Official Lyric Video


On their fourteenth studio album, Grammy-winning folk-rock duo Indigo Girls deliver a beautifully crafted batch of songs that revel in spirited simplicity. Alternating richly textured storytelling with moody ruminations on modern-world worries, Beauty Queen Sister (due out October 4, 2011 on IG Recordings/Vanguard Records) reveals a fierce longing for a more idyllic existence while still ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Closest to Fine October 28, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure Chest November 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
As someone raised on 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 heard on FM radio. A few years ago, I took a risk on the Indigo Girls' mainstream debut. What a reward!

Half of "INDIGO GIRLS" is generously loaded with songs familiar to casual fans such as "Kid Fears," "Tried To Be True," "Love's Recovery," "Land of Canaan" and the anthemic "Closer To Fine." But, the deeper cuts are just as impressive. One facet of the Indigo Girls' charm is the contrast between Ray and Saliers' voices. This is magically captured in "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.

In this era where attaining fame is more important than creating art, the Indigo Girls keep it real. They seldom appear on television. They've never appeared on the cover of "Rolling Stone". In short, they refuse to bow to a shallow music establishment. It's the music that matters. I hope they never change. Check out the album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still relevant after all of these years. January 17, 2005
By K. H.
Format:Audio CD
When I was 13 this was my favorite cd. Now, many years later, it moves me in ways I only thought I understood then. Since I've learned about death, heartache and all the crap that happens to us little people on this bizarre journey, I realize that this is perhaps on of the greatest albums by anyone ever. With lyrics that are unimaginably cutting and harmonies that are hard to imagine being created by just two voices -- Perfection.

I already had a number of IG CDs when I found this Gold Disc in the music store. I bought it on the spot and ran home to play it on my CD player. I played it over and over and swapped the original silver CD with the Gold CD to see if I could tell a difference, and I couldn't.
The CD comes in a cool cardboard/paper sleeve that the jewel box fits in, but other than that, and the gold color (and 24kt gold content) of the disc, there is absolutely no difference... especially in the sound.
When you turn the volume up all the way on both the original, you hear the pops and squeaks as the guitarists hands and fingers move along the strings. The gold edition of this disc still includes these pops and squeaks. They weren't removed, and if this gold version is supposedly "re-mastered" from the original, it must have been re-mastered for the hearing range of bats, because I can not tell the difference.
If you're into collecting everything they've ever done, or you don't already own the original version of this CD, this is a good buy... the gold version will supposedly last longer, but it's not like you're going to be saving the silver version for your great-great grandchildren. Unless you leave your CDs on the dashboard of your car in the hot sun, the silver version should last past your life time anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing! November 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Indigo Girls pull you in with their incredible lyrics, heartfelt vocals, and voices that can range from soft and sensual to tormented and wild. They play to every possible human emotion, and their music seems to dive right into the depths of your soul, where you thought you'd never let anyone in, and touch you in a way no other band ever could. Their first album has been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little girl, and as I grew I also began to appreciate it in different ways. "Closer To Fine" will always make me smile and hum along. "Blood and Fire" makes me remember the love of my life, and how I would felt when he left - it tears at me every time I hear it because it simply rings so true. If you are thinking about buying this album, I cannot tell you enough that this will be the best money ever spent on a CD - well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the top 100 best albums of all time August 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is a testamet to what one can do with 6 strings, a few chords, a big imagination- and a capo. Along with REM, who was also on the album, IG reminded music listeners that it was okay to go unplugged and it sounded more than alright. Until then, acoustic tunes were a 70's thing and nobody was listening.

Every song on this is good- my favorites are "Kid Fears", "The History of US", "Secure Yourself", "Blood and Fire" and of course, "Closer to Fine" and there is no better road trip disc.
