[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.]


dont know if this has been posted here. it's the associated press' review of
become you.

sound bites: audio reviews

selected releases:

''become you'' (epic, dlrs 18.98) - indigo girls

if you haven't bought an indigo girls release since, say, 1994's ''swamp
ophelia'' because you believed the acoustic duo was losing its edge or
getting too mainstream, then ''become you'' will win you back.

it's a chance to hear georgia natives emily saliers and amy ray do what they
do best - concoct mature, witty, intelligent songs and match their voices in
exquisite harmonies.

the girls' eighth studio release is roots rock at its best. penny whistle,
accordion and mandolin dominate this back-to-basics album.

ray's title track is a standout. it manages to sound like both bluegrass and
american indian music, creating a unique and intriguing combination.

''bitterroot,'' which features backing vocals and outstanding harmonica by
michelle malone, is an out-and-out toe-tapper. listeners will have a tough
time sitting still while listening to lyrics such as ''tonight i'll be
sleeping on the mountaintop, i got a billion stars for my witness; in the
morning i'll go down and the sun comes up, i'll take a drink from the
bitterroot river.''

fans of indigo girls, drink up.

hey folks,

for those in australia - the versions of "strange fire", "indigo
girls", "nomads*indians*saints" and "rites of passage" which were
released with the extra tracks are available locally.  i don't
know how long they've been for sale here - i just discovered this
the other day while in borders looking for the new album (which
doesn't appear to be out here yet).  they're available in regular
jewel cases (i think the ones in the us were digipacks?) which is
another reason i hadn't noticed this before...

fyi -
