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!

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.

A very short review: All I can say is that don't, whatever you do, give up listening to this after one attempt. It just gets better and better. I must have heard the whole album 20 times now, and am finding new things and enjoying the tunes more every time. This was punctuated by seeing the Girls live in Shepherd's Bush and Brighton, which only added to the 'experience' of this album. That's what it is, it's not an album, it's an experience that gets bigger and better every time!

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.

If you've never listened to the Indigo Girls, you'll be singing the songs over and over without even realising after a couple of listens. Its a great album
