iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Indigo Girls self-titled 1989 major label debut album came to represent a renewed interest in acoustic music after a decade when the music industry served up large-scale pop, metal, and dance productions. This Georgian duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers wielded their acoustic guitars, earnest lyrics and sympathetic harmonies for maximum effect, yielding the immediate coffeehouse folk classic “Closer to Fine.” The two singers compose separately, providing a built-in diversity. Ray is the dark horse: “Kid Fears” with a backing vocal from R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, and “Blood and Fire” slow the euphoric pulse with a hypnotic, obsessive flow of reflective balladry while “Land of Canaan” sports a country-rock side and “Tried to Be True” revels in a pop jangle. Saliers’ ballads, “Love’s Recovery” and “History of Us” offer a softer touch. Members of Hothouse Flowers and R.E.M. support without taking the focus away from the aromatic blend of the two gifted voices. The expanded edition includes the radio single remix of “Land of Canaan” that brightens the song incrementally, and a live version of “Center Stage” that strips the duo to its barest essence.

Customer Reviews

AMAZING!!

They've done it again! These women are amazing and help me remeber what real music should sound like in todays world. Even though I'm 17 that doesn't mean I don't know good music when I hear it. :P My favorites are Closer To Fine, Secure Yourself, and Kid Fears.

A Must For Any Fan Of Great Music & Writing

Simply, the girls are amazing. Some of my faves are History Of Us, Prince Of Darkness , Secure Yourself and Closer to Fine. Amazing harmonies abound here. In my opinion, Emily Saliers writes some of the best songs. When your'e done with this album, get Rites Of Passage.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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,...
