indigo girls find equality on 'become you'
by chuck campbell news-sentinel entertainment editor
march 22, 2002

* "become you," indigo girls (epic)the indigo girls sound more cohesive
than ever on their new "become you," a return to an acoustic-based
foundation after 1999's adventurous "come on now social."

workhorses amy ray and emily saliers have been plugging away since the
mid-1980s. once leaders of a folk rebellion that never really materialized,
the indigo girls have been immune to the music industry's fads ... heavy
metal, grunge, hip-hop, pop ... and have stuck to an organic sound that has
rewarded them with reliable success.

rather than co-write songs together, the two women customarily split the
writing duties, which often resulted in albums that seemed like two solo
efforts spliced together. that particularly worked against ray, whose
penchant for melodrama and stridency kept her lagging behind saliers.

yet ray has been steadily catching up, and on "become you" she is every bit
saliers' equal. (perhaps ray's 2001 solo release, "stag," was the final
push she needed.)

both performers embrace an easygoing confidence in their play and words, a
mood that transfers to the pair's supporting band on "become you." produced
by peter collins, who presided over the indigo girls' "rites of passage"
(1992) and "swamp ophelia" (1994), the new release is a reflective and
understated effort from a pair of social and artistic activists who have
edged to the brink of 40 and are happy where they are.

ray's roots-based songs include the bluesy single "moment of forgiveness,"
the effervescent "yield" and the percussive romp "bitter root." she also
contributes the title track that blends americana with an enticing pop
chorus.

saliers brings a more sedate selection to the mix, including a low-key
expression of deep feeling, "she's saving me," and the smooth romance of
"you've got to show" that features unexpected yet effective saxophone by
dan higgins.

unlike past efforts, the indigo girls don't sound like they're trying to
change the world on "become you," and at times they're even a bit bland.
yet there's something inescapably comforting about two skilled artists who
are so calmly sure of themselves.
