After 20 years making wonderful music together, the Indigo Girls prove they've still got it. This, their first album for new label Hollywood, showcases the distinctive harmonies, great tunes and strong lyrics that have made them the world's best-loved female singer-songwriter duo.

Unusually for a duo, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers write their songs separately from each other. As with their previous albums, the tracks alternate between the sweet and sad complexities of Emily's songs, and Amy's harder-edged, rockier sound.

But guess what? It's Emily whose anger against the Bush administration and hope for a better kind of politics comes out in the stunning opening track, Pendulum Swinger: "your glistening eyes / show the hell you're gonna give 'em / when they back off the mic for once / and give it to a woman." And it's Amy's warm, wounded heart that beats in the bittersweet "Three County Highway." The IGs never stop developing as songwriters, and these tracks show show them pushing their boundaries with renewed energy and commitment.

The Indigo Girls did a guest spot on Pink's latest album and she returns on the track "Rock N Roll Heaven's Gate." Other highlights include the catchy "Little Perennials", with its striking chorus, and "Run", which explores the uncertainties and tensions of a relationship's early days.

Like REM, the IGs first came to prominence in 1980s Georgia: like REM, they're smart, and build on and subvert a range of musical traditions. As out and proud artists, they're sometimes compared to Melissa Etheridge, or as female songwriters, to Suzanne Vega, Tracy Chapman, or Mary Chapin Carpenter. And with their recent covers of "Homeward Bound" and "Mrs Robinson", it won't be long until someone calls them the female Simon & Garfunkel.

The title of this new Indigo Girls album makes it natural to compare the song-writing styles of the two Indigo Girls a little.

Amy Ray's style usually tends to be being less complicated than Emily Saliers' and often slighly raw and unpolished. To a certain extent this is also due to her vocal-style which is obviously more bluesy and rocking. Saliers style usually is softer, more melodice and refined, but it seemed on the two previous albums that they had become more alike with Ray contributing more strong material to their albums. Lyrically they both always kept the highest standards.

But again, on this new album your never in doubt who wrote which songs and Emily Saliers is back as the undisputed main song-writer.

Her opening track "Pendulum Swinger" is a catchy up-beat track in the same vein as their old hit-single "Hammer and a Nail".

"I Believe in Love" is a typical Saliers ballad - great track from which the album title was taken.

"Sun" is another great catchy song with great sounding guitars - the same could be said about "Lay My Head Down" - another standout!

"Fly Away" is a nice piano-ballad, though probably not among her most memorable.

"All the Way" is simply so great and catchy that it must be the obvious choice for the next single - my favourite along with "Pendulum Swinger" and "I Believe in Love".

The melancholy country-ballad "Last Tears" closes the album perfectly - very moving lyrics - An equally great acoustic version can be found on CD 2 of the "Collector's Edition.

Amy Ray's first track on the album "Little Perennials" is classic Indigo Girls - upbeat and catchy. The sound of the distorted electric guitar towards somehow seems out of place.

This is a brilliant albulm, it reminds me of some of the earlier works like Closer to Fine in terms of accessibility. Most of the songs are growers and after about three times of listening to the albulm the whole way through, it had become a firm favourite with me. A good mix of Emily and Amy, with their own distinctive styles. Songs for the salad years more than the earlier passion filled anxst of youth, with more wistful acceptance of life and love. As i feel I have grown up with the girls, their changes in attitude and process of maturing, always present in their music, means that they always hit just the right note for me.

Some things in life are dependable.

The songs of Ms Ray and Ms Sayers have been
just that and more for twenty years.

'Despite Our Differences' contains some of
the best material ever to have burst out of
this unique duo's long-time collaboration.

There is a vivid edginess running through
the album from top to tail.

Mr Froom's production is never less than
Mr Chamberlain (drums); Ms Kenny (bass)
and again Mr Froom (keyboards) create a
rock solid framework for the thirteen
five star compositions.

So many delights it's hard to know where to start.

The familiar, distinctive vocal harmonies have
rarely sounded better.
'Pendulum Swinger' and 'Little Perennials' (one of
Ms Ray's most upbeat and raucous songs) open the
album in fine vintage style.

Ms Sayers 'Fly Away' is a piano-led ballad of
outstanding beauty. An enchanting highpoint.

Ms Pink lends her splendidly rough and ready support
to 'Rock and Roll Heaven's Gate' (a favour returned
following the IG's moral support for her own magnificent
'Dear Mr President' the year before).
The raw immediacy of the recording has a one-take feel.
A real stormer !

Ms Carlile's pretty vocal contribution to the lilting
country melody of 'Last Tears' is truly lovely
(as is Mr Leisz's mournful pedal steel guitar).

That these fine singer/songwriters continue to
produce music of such refined quality after so
many years is a proud testament to an extraordinary
creative association and enduring friendship.

The differences, whatever they may be, are
clearly working to their (and our) advantage.

Highly Recommended.
