Product Description


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

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming harmony 26 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
The bittersweet harmonies and authenticity of this duo placed them among the foremost singer-songwriters of the early 1990s. Their intelligent lyrics and evocative imagery make every song worthwhile, even when the tune is not particularly catchy. So tracks like Hammer And A Nail and Welcome Me with its spectacular guitar patterns are pleasant enough but somewhat lacking in the melody department. Where the melody is great, they deliver the most exquisite songs like Southland In The Springtime, the poignant You & Me Of The 10 000 Wars, the soulful Pushing The Needle Too Far which reminds me of Marianne Faithfull, and the stirring poetic song The Girl With The Weight Of The World In Her Hands. Another great one is World Falls, a song which in its imagery evokes Jane Siberry's classic Bound By The Beauty. There is a spiritual undertone and a feeling of pastoral purity in the music which is reflected in the environmental concerns of some of the songs. Those who like the music of Lucinda Williams, Suzanne Vega and acoustic folk in general, will love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passionate Stories 15 May 2004
By Rosie
Format:Audio CD
'Nomads, Indians and Saints' is one of those albums that you'll play for the rest of your life. Each song has it's own message and moral, something to teach you about how to accept or appreciate life's emotionally charged moments. Astounding harmonies, astute lyrics - not for the fainthearted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good folkrock 10 Jun 2013
Format:Audio Cassette
Somewhat slow and sweet folkrock. And pretty nice. Not really outstanding, but pleasant to listen too. If you like the genre, pick up this album, you're bound to love some of the songs. Not a bad album to get for those just curious about the band either. It does show Indigo Girls from some of their best sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart-rending and bitterly angry, N/I/S may be their best! 4 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect companion for a lone traveller. 11 Jan 1999
By Alana (alanajedi@hotmail.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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..."

5.0 out of 5 stars another fabulous studio offering 9 July 2000
By Shelley Gammon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Indigo Girls Album Out There 12 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Finest Offering.... 11 April 2007
By R. Prescott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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!
