I guess I have a different view on the album. I think it is soothing, and in a way erotic. If you like this album, you will definitely like Vangelis' "L'Apocalypse Des Animaux" and "Opera Sauvage." It's rather an in-between kind of album. I mean, if you like the soothing side (some thinks it's the dark side), then you will find much better versions of this in many of Steve Roach's albums, my favorite being "The Magnificent Void." On the other hand, if you like the erotic side, then "Rêve" (Opera Sauvage) is make out music, if you ask me ;o) About the opening track, I don't think Devil would dig it. I mean, it has too much light ;o) Still, I like the melancholy and the overall quality of the album.

Indigo goes further still into the sonic realms that O Hearn has woven on all his albums. Perfect ambient bass and intelligently crafted rythmn create warm aural sanctuary. Chillout music with heart. The americans may have recognised this artiste first but it's time for a wider audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless and transcending classic work of art! 5 Oct. 2004
By Distant Voyageur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of P.O.'s most brilliant magical landmark albums to date. This is a complete departure from the sunny daytime feel of El Dorado and Rivers Gonna Rise. This is a very dark and more midievel sounding recoed that shatters new grounds in his music and is one of his strongest albums to date.

Devils Lake is a very scary sounding song with echoing pianos and a very ominous sound. At 3:56 some electronic percussion and some rhythm comes in giving a feel of traveling through space towards a glowing cluster of stars. Sacrifice is a haunting track with very dark tingling synths for about the first 3 and a half minutes. At about 2:40 drums come in and real add on to the song. The horns are beatiful. When I close my eyes when listening to this song I could imagine being out in the forest in the dead of night and then all of a sudden a green glowing, wide-eyed warrior ghost on a chariot coming out of the background being pulled by horses. Coba is beyond what words can say alone. It's a very frightening song with echoing drums and very nighttime synths. I love the intense bridge with strong synths from 2:18 to 3:00. It then ends with the ambient synths continuing. This is my favorite song on this album. Upon The Wings Of Night is what the title says. It's a most ambient song with trumpets but they really sound great.Sacret Heart is another beautiful but a tad bit brighter but still dark and spacey. The Beauty Within is another beatiful but with echoing pianos but at the last 30 seconds the pianos give away to pulsating synths and fade out. What an amazing song. Desire is absolutely magical. It starts out with dazzling synths. Then some drums come in. This is one of the best songs on this album. Ringmasters Dream is very unique. It starts off as an ambient track but then later it gradually morphs into a sort of orchestraesque song and then fades into carnival sounds at the ending. Espana is a truly magical closing track to this CD. It a very peaceful with a truly melancholy feel. A great closer to this CD.

This is one of Mr. O'Hearns strongest albums to date. It's so much different from his earlier works and paved the way for his more midievel sounding material works afterwards. This is an essential recoeding for fans of Patrick O'Hearn and all New Age lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Melancholy... with a Vengeance 26 May 2000
By rue_morgue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This seductive collection of deep, mood-provoking music is quite possibly my favorite album of all time. Through his trademark use of synths, Patrick O'Hearn evokes a sonic underworld unmatched by any artist on the New Age scene today. Each song carries its own unique texture -- the climactic Ringmaster's Dream twists a what would be a light circus-theme into something truly foreboding. And the opening track, Devil's Lake, carries a kind of inspired beauty through the darkness it describes.
Foolishly, I had purchased the cassette copy some years ago instead of the cd. After procrastinating about upgrading, I finally condeded, only to find the cd was no longer available. This re-release from One Way is a treat indeed, and I would recommend the title to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best 19 Oct. 2003
By C. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ok, let me start by saying I'm not particularly fond of Between two worlds, rivers gonna rise, or eldorado. On the other hand I can't get enough of the soundscapes he returned to with this disk and apparently will stay with from here on.
Indigo was the record that made me an ohearn fan back in the mid 90's. This record has certainly spent significantly more time in my cdplayer than any other over the years. I can't seem to wear it out.
This is dark (but pretty) ambient with frequent interludes of what by new age standards are fairly violent tribal druming.
Until So flows the current (his best) came out a couple years back, this stood as the record with the most sophisticated and complete tracks. More layers, better production.
if you like O'hearn, this album is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still listen to it time and again, after 11 years 12 April 2004
By vasavadutta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
O'Hearn is a magical composer. I don't know music well enough to give you technical keywords, but I can tell you that it is nothing short of brilliant, and nearly timeless. The tune of in 'Espana', especially, has haunted me over the years, combining elements of nostalgia, solitude, and taking you away from the present happenings... it slows you down to freeze on a larger perspective; In 'Coba', 'Sacred Heart', and 'Upon the wings..' you will find a tremendouly up-beat swing, a strong rhythmic pulse with enchanting tunes. I fell in love with this album at once.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of O'Hearns best... 30 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
... and that is saying a lot. Indigo is, in my opinion, second only to River's Gonna Rise (which, strangely, isn't available on amazon.com). The album is different from other O'Hearn albums in that it focuses on synth and ambience much more than any other work he's done. Plus, it's a good deal darker than his other albums. Great if you are smoking marijuana or reading a book.
My favorite tracks on Indigo are: Ringmaster's Dream (a dark, twisted take on the carnival theme); Devils Lake (very ambient); Upon the Wings of Night (another ambient track, great trumpet work); and Sacrafice (borderline "horror" song, but gets brighter towards the end). All of the songs are great, however. If you are just starting to listen to O'Hearn, Indigo is an excellent introduction to his work.
