Product Description

Indigo Girls ~ Nomads Indians Saints

Amazon.com

Amid a musical landscape where "alternative" had quickly been co-opted by MTV and the fashion industry, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray tapped a vein of cultural and sexual dissatisfaction and yearning (if not rebellion) in their 20-something peers. Their first hit, "Closer to Fine," had an insinuating folk-pop groove and enough philosophical trappings to suggest this feisty acoustic duo had bigger things planned. Their third album proved it: the arrangements are aggressive and their pop temperament bubbles to the fore on songs like "Hammer and a Nail" and the handsome, sweet "Southland in the Springtime." --Roy Francis Kasten

I have been a fan of the Indigo Girls for about eight years now, I've seen them in concert twice, and I have to say that of all their albums, this is perhaps their most powerful and outspoken. The lyrical styles of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have remained relatively constant over the years, but the songs on this album, particularly "Hammer and Nail" and "Welcome Me", are at the same time both beautiful to hear and inimitably painful to experience. These two women put such power, joy, and longing into both their words and their voices that it is impossible to listen to this album and come away from it unchanged (I know because I forced some friends who weren't Indigo Girls fans to listen to it, and they loved it!). By far my favorite album, and one well worth the price.

N*I*S has taken me places, and it's followed me around the world on my journeys. This is one of my favourite Indigo Girls albums - in fact it was my first introduction to their talent beyond 'Closer To Fine'. For me, this collection of songs speaks of self discovery through the understanding of relationships between friends, lovers, family, and the physical world. Emily and Amy have only collaborated on a couple of songs in their entire career, and their independant songwriting has worked perfectly on this release - 5 of Emily's finest have shown up, and 6 Amy gems rear their intense heads. Mortality and and celebration of growth are two recurrent themes throughout their songs on Nomads. Also a common thread is the discovery life's beauty through reflection, both tragic and humorous. Listening to the album while I write this, I am tempted to compare the wonderful production of this album to Shawn Colvin's "Steady On" in it's polished acoustics and honest guitar playing.
I highly recommend this Nomads Indians Saints as a gift or as an introduction to Folk and the Indigos. And like I said, it's the perfect companion for a lone traveller. I've travelled the world three times on this album, and I never tire of it. With my headphones on, my eyes on the ever-changing landscape, I listen to Amy's words, Emily's wonderful fingerpicking on the title track and listen to the perfectly apt lyrics "...this world falls on me, dreams of immortality, everywhere I turn - the beauty just keeps shaking me... I running, to the end of the earth. I'm swimming to the edge of the sea. I'm laughing, I'm under starry sky - this world was meant for me, don't bury me - carry me... this world was meant for me, I've got hopes of immortality..."

More excellent work from the Indigo Girls. "1 2 3" was a little too rough for my tastes when I first heard the CD, but it grew on me... the rest of the tracks need no such "growing" time... they're excellent tracks and great to listen to. "Hammer and a Nail" is this album's answer to "Closer to Fine" on their self-titled debut.
If you've only gotten the first installment of their work, you're really missing out if you don't pick this one up, too. The songs are a real treat and easy on the ears and the heart.

I love every song on this CD! You just can't compare the intricate harmony's of Amy & Emily. Every song on here is incredible. From the inspiring Hammer and a Nail to the sweet sound of "southland in the springtime" (such an Emily song). & Watershed...they sing this at most all their shows. & then World Falls...each song is so unique. But I am a true blue Indigo Girl fan. Have been following them for 30 years. Seen them live at least 40 times. Know every song they've written backwards & forwards. I had to re-order NIS, Swamp Ophelia & & Rights of Passage due to over usage of my originals. Wanted to download these but needed clean new discs. I can't imagine anyone not thoroughly finding something to love about this CD though. If you're new to the Indigo Girls, definitely check out all of their other music. You most surly will not be disappointed!

How great to hear this again -- bring back so many memories! I still think they're wonderful. These are iconic songs, and as ever, their blended voices do something powerful. Glad to have this CD again.

It's more polished than "Strange Fire" or "Indigo Girls," but not too polished like "Rites of Passage" or anything that's come after that. It's about perfect. If you live in New England, it's a great album to play on an October afternoon out on a car ride. Rustic, Earthy, yearning. You can smell the leaves and the smoke from chimneys.

From the opening note of "Hammer and Nail" to the closing notes of "The Girl With The Weight Of The World In Her Hands" this is Indigo Girls at their finest. Of all their albums, this one is my favorite and constantly makes it back into the CD player rotation. I have the original version so I don't know what difference the bonus tracks would make on the remastered version. Having seen the Indigo Girls live twice now, I feel very priviledged to have experienced them live. This album struck a chord in me and many of my friends the year of it's release. We lived it, loved it, and paid homage to the "Girls" many times. It is hard to have a favorite. The Indigo Girls continue to amaze me with each release. But, I would recommend this one be the first one you add to your collection. "Nomads Indians Saints" is a finely crafted pop/rock/folk collection of art that you can see and feel as well as hear. Each cut paints a lyrical tapestry that makes you feel as if you're there with them as the songs came to them. The harmonies, instrumentation and production on this album are incredible. See, hear, feel, smell, touch, taste, and ENJOY!
