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.
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!
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.
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.
