Album Review

Indigo Girls had sort of boxed themselves into the corner during the late '90s. They had become pop culture icons, as known for their politics as their music. Unfortunately, being in such a position meant their music had gotten a little stale, as the good but predictable Shaming of the Sun illustrated. The duo seized the opportunity to experiment and redefine their music with 1999's Come on Now Social. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers invited a host of guest musicians — including Sheryl Crow, Joan Osborne, Me'Shell Ndegeocello, Natacha Atlas, Sinéad O'Connor's backing band Ghostland, the Band's Garth Hudson, and Luscious Jackson's Kate Schellenbach — to contribute to their most eclectic set of songs to date. Yes, they had a full, even prog rock sound on Swamp Opheila, but the Indigos tackle a number of different styles on Come On Now. "Go" opens the album in a roar, rocking harder than anything Indigo Girls have yet recorded, but it only sets the pace for the rest of the album in that it offers a departure. From that point on, the duo tries on other styles; they don't abandon the folk-rock that made their name, but they add straight-ahead rock & roll, old timey folk, modern country, and, in the case of the wonderful single "Peace Tonight," pop-soul. Not only are the different styles welcome, but the songwriting is strong and the performances revitalized. Indigo Girls never went away, but it's the highest compliment to be paid to Come On Now Social to say that it feels like a fully realized comeback.

Customer Reviews

Great Memories!

I think this album has several memorable hits: Go, for one, is probably one of the best IG songs EVER. Gone Again was great, Trouble too. The next three tracks, Sister, Peace Tonight, and Ozilline, are all favorites of mine (especially Ozilline, a true folk classic.) All the other tracks are okay but they don't tend to stick out quite as much. A really nice album as a whole, though, for most of the songs are really good.

Under the radar...

Somehow this one was completely off my radar when it first came out, and stumbled across it today-- Wow, from the opening song it takes off, and never ceases to impress. Every song is a winner. Especially Trouble, Sister, Peace Tonight, and We Are Together -- but, really, the whole disc is a winner. Wish I would've discovered this one sooner. It's Indigo Girls in top form doing what they do best -- their own distinct brand of folk-rock-country with a dash of social consciousness. Gotta love it!

Not The First Choice

If you've never picked up an Indigo Girls album before, please don't start here. This is my least favorite of all their output and a bad place to start. While there are some great songs on here, this is not the Indigo Girls sound that I've come to know and love. They experimented with more electric instruments and rock arrangements and the girls and the songs just get lost in the production. It's a must have for die hards, but not an essential piece to own.

While they came into prominence as part of the late-'80s folky singer/songwriter revival, the Indigo Girls had staying power where other artists from the same era quickly faded. Their two-women-with-guitars formula may not have seemed very revolutionary on paper, but the combination of two distinct personalities and songwriting styles provided tension and an interesting balance. Emily Saliers, hailing from the more traditional Joni Mitchell school, boasted a gentler sound, was more complex musically,...
