Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Three years after the experimental and not-always-successful Come on Now Social, the Indigo Girls return to a more traditional framework with the acoustic-based Become You. A deft melding of folk, rock, and pop--and laced with Latin and soul around the edges--Become You gets to the heart of what Amy Ray (the rocking half) and Emily Saliers (the gentler half) do best: chronicle the complexities of love and socio-sexual politics from a feminist viewpoint. While the seductive and full-bodied melodies leave plenty of expanse for the duo's gauzy, hand-in-glove harmonies, the majority of the repertoire here carries an undercurrent of dissatisfaction and anxiety, whether about the outcome of a rocky love affair ("Moment of Forgiveness"), the still-extant racism in the South ("Become You"), or the ultimate fate of the Mexican women who fight for change with the Zapatistas ("Nuevas Senoritas"). Poignant, thought-provoking, and beautifully crafted, with rapt attention to the interplay of instruments as well as voices, Become You finds Ray and Saliers back in top form and as relevant in 2002 as at the start of their 15-year career. --Alanna Nash

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Folk Roots For Underrated Acoustic Duo 10 April 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's a pleasure to be the first Amazonian reviewer of this wonderful new record. This is Emily and Amy's eighth album in a 14 year career that has created some of the most melodic and passionate songs of the last decade. Become You sees the duo return to thier acoustic folk roots after teh awesome Come on now Social. Not much experimentation here but a dozen stirring personal and political songs for for any campfire or lonely Saturday Night. The opener Moment of Forgiveness is an instant classic soul stirrer from Amy who is less strident and politically motivated in her song writing on this collection. The title track is another Southern Sizzler on the psychology of relationships. Not to be outdone Emily gives us Deconstruction with its gorgeous melody and profound insights. Later emily provides us with The Indigo's first Jazz song with "You've Got To Show" which is moody and evocative and a totla success partly due to Dan Higgins sax solo. Amy provides us with two stompers in the form of Bitteroot a rousing number about back-packing and the catchy 'Yield' which is exhilirating. 'Collecting You' and 'Hope Alone' continue the aching melancholy of Emily's writng and beautiful ballad singing. 'She's Saving Me'is a tender masterpiece and the spanish inflexions on 'Nuevas Senoritas' work to bring the collection to a wonderfully sophisticated close. This is a fabulous album of heartfelt songs sung blue and light and lovely. I have been a fan of this band for twelve years and can't believe they are not as big as REM. Wise up and check these girls out and catch up with the output!

4.0 out of 5 stars Time to chill, if not to thrill 4 Mar 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After three albums of experimental, sharply politicised country-rock, "Become You" sees the Indigo Girls in mellower, more introspective mood. Because of that, this album has much less instant impact than, say, "Swamp Ophelia" or "Come On Now Social", and the melodies for the most part are a little too subtle to get firmly stuck in the brain like those on "Rites of Passage". This is an album, really, for a quiet Saturday night with candles and a bottle of wine; but the depth and beauty of the songwriting and the sheer perfection of the Indigo Girls' trademark harmonies make it well worth many repeat listenings. Stand-out tracks for me are the melancholy "Hope Alone", and the deliciously ironic "Deconstruction" - the latter being one of the few which does lend itself to singing along in the bath, and in many respects one of the Girls' finest songs yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Less is more 16 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
Have been a big fan ever since I saw them live on a friends recommendation years ago. This is a beautifully crafted album containing much less politicism and angst than previous more up-tempo albums. The strength of the album is its subtle harmonies of vocals and accoustic guitar. Much self-contemplation and sensitivity in the lyrics. Yeah, a really nice album, i have to admit i wondered if they were losing a bit of direction in their last couple of albums but this album is strong and cohesive all the way through and a definite return to form.
