album review - indigo girls - despite our differences

after it reached the big time in 1989 by scoring a hit single with
closer to fine, the indigo girls admirably spent the next decade doing
everything it could to make sure that each of its endeavors was
markedly different from its predecessor. however, by the time the duo
released its seventh outing come on now social, the strain of its
ambitions had begun to weigh heavily upon its work, and the challenge
of trying push its music in new directions while also retaining the
organic effortlessness of its past affairs proved to be almost too
much to bear. although it further highlighted the problems the group
was experiencing, the indigo girls' career-spanning retrospective
provided an opportunity for reflection, which, in turn, allowed it to
take a back-to-basics approach on its subsequent albums become you and
all that we let in.

the indigo girls' latest effort despite our differences continues to
follow a similar trajectory, though note-for-note, it also is the most
infectious, pop-infused set that the duo ever has managed to concoct.
in fact, its melodies, harmonies, and arrangements are so ingratiating
that -- from the bracing, who-inspired power chords of rock and roll
heaven's gate (which includes a guest appearance by pink) to the
shimmering, xtc-meets-bob dylan charm of pendulum swinger to the
soaring and soulful strains of the billy joel-inspired lay my head
down -- the album carries the weight of an instant classic.

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

fyi: i have one extra ticket for charleston. it's in row 1, section b, seat
13. as always, bon and i bought too many tickets... ;)

anyway, face value ($38.00) plus etix's $10 (yes, $10) service and handling
fees.

email me if you're interested.

the tickets have not arrived in the mail yet, and according to etix they
will be shipped a week before the show. i'm coming from california, so i'll
have to meet you at the venue to exchange the ticket for cash. once i agree
to sell it to you, you have to promise me you'll show up and take it. in
return, i promise not to sell it to anyone else.

xoxo

spike
