Editorial Reviews

Limited two CD edition of this 2009 release from the Folk/Rock duo includes a bonus disc containing the album's acoustic sessions along with the bonus track 'Salty South'.. It's been over two decades since the Indigo Girls launched their career with their independently released debut album, 1987's Strange Fire. Now, after entertaining millions of fans with their 10 major-label studio albums, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have come full circle with the independent release of their 2009 album, Poseidon And The Bitter Bug.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Compilation and a Return to Roots March 25, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There were some who said that the Indigo Girls changed with the release of "Become You," a change that continued with "Despite Our Differences." While both of those albums were classic IG, they did carry a different feel, with "Despite Our Differences" especially carrying a more pop-type theme. When the Girls were dropped unexpectedly from the Hollywood label and decided to strike out on their own, I was one of the skeptics.

Fortunately, "Poseidon and the Bitter Bug" met all expectations and banished any doubts that I might have had -- on top of being a powerful comeback CD after the Hollywood Labels hooplah, "Poseidon" is also something of a return to the Indigo Girls' roots as true folk-rock musicians.

Ray and Saliers combine for a powerful duo, continuing in their usual method of splitting the tracks between themselves. Saliers' tracks tend toward the darker or more melancholy on this collection, but they create a subtle power while Ray continues to draw her conclusions through metaphor and lush imagery. Each track has its own strengths and weaknesses, but "Poseidon" itself is something of an original idea. While at times the flow is somewhat put off, it comes together for something with spark and originality in an industry that seems to have largely lost that spark.

The best feature of "Poseidon and the Bitter Bug," however, is the inclusion of a second CD. True fans of the Indigo Girls will be utterly thrilled because the second CD is essentially a deconstructed acoustic rework of the original. The songs are in a different order with one new track that wasn't featured in the studio album, and it's merely Ray and Saliers doing what they've been made famous for: playing and harmonizing in perfect and oftentimes mesmerising melodies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indigo power back on track! BUY THE 2-CD SET!! March 25, 2009
By J. Kipp
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD exemplifies why I love Indigo Girls. In my opinion, it is far better than the last two albums. But please buy the acoustic CD - you'll not regret it because it's minimalism reveals Amy and Emily at their very best. Both are incredibly talented and are overlooked way too often by the entertainment press. There are not many artists who can write all of their own songs (each crafts their song, then get together to arrange), walk into a small venue carrying only two guitars, without amplifiers, and create truly moving, beautiful music with thoughtful lyrics. That they have prevailed for nearly 30 years, and left a legacy of nearly 250 songs in an extremely competitive, male-dominated, industry attests for itself. Musical tastes are subjective, and so I won't elaborate on why Ghost of a Gang, True Romantic, Love of Our Lives, and Second Time Around are my favorites. But I think that most who enjoy harmony and meaning in song will really enjoy this laudable piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return to form March 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I know it sounds like a cliche but "Poseidon" really is a return to form for Indigo Girls. It's an album I've been waiting for for a very long time. The key? It's an acoustic album. Even the "big band" versions are mostly acoustic...this harks back to the halcyon days of "Stange Fire" and "Indigo Girls" and it's a welcome return to that sound.

I just got the album today and I can't stop playing it. I love the "And I Love Her" style guitar break on "Sugar Tongue"...I just can't get over that! It's so cool!

Every song is great...I can't tell yet but this could be one of their strongest albums.

I love hearing the stripped down acoustic arrangements on the second CD. I've heard the acoustic arrangement of "Perfect World" and it shreds the over-produced version on the "All That We Let In" album....I wish they'd given us an acoustic disc of that whole album as well but I'm grateful for this one. I hope they continue this practice...it's a great idea, especially for this group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another blow out performance... March 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I really only ever listened to "Retrospective" but loved their music. I touched upon a few other songs but was never crazy about them...then there came this CD. I have to tell you it is a complete breath of fresh air. Their voices are so peaceful and relaxing. I don't know what to write about this CD, it is amazing, plain and simple.

With all the junk out there today (turn on your local radio station and just listen), this CD is a reminder that there is still some great music and MUSICIANS out there. You can tell, THEY controlled this recording not a Producer or a computer.

Great work ladies...please keep it up. I feel 10 pounds lighter when I listen to the angelic nature of your voices.

Make no mistake. I LOVE Indigo Girls!!! I have every cd and some of them twice due to the remasters. They are one of my favorite bands and I travel around the East Coast to see them on every tour. Some will say that I am not the most objective person to write this review, but if you believe that and you do not listen to this album, you will be losing out.
Poseidon and the Bitter Bug is a FANTASTIC CD!!! The feel throughout is of freedom. - Most likely due to leaving the major record labels behind and creating their own label. The Girls put out a very optimistic vibe throughout the entire collection!
I highly recommend purchasing the double disc "deluxe" version, as it has all of the songs on disc 1 as just Amy & Emily, all acoustic. Plus there is an extra song by Amy that is terrific!
I cannot pick a "favorite" track as I find a new favorite everyday. However, I am very drawn to both versions of "Digging For Your Dream" and "Ghost of the Gang" brings back memories of my high school days.
I am so happy that this record is finally out and can't wait to hear all of these songs done live on tour.
If you like Indigo Girls, BUY THIS CD!!! You won't be sorry!
