On their eponymous 1989 debut, the Indigo Girls followed the lead of such greats as Laura Nyro and Joni Mitchell. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers pumped social conscience and self-esteem into ringing acoustic anthems like "Closer to Fine" and "Land of Canaan," just in time to catch the rising tide of feminist rock. Occasionally rough and a little too self-conscious, the songs on this CD resound with a profound sense of honesty and raw emotion. Crisp guitar work and haunting harmonies became the stock-in-trade of this powerful duo of "girls with guitars." L.A. Smith

"A few years back, I bought this CD from only a recommendation by one of the KS95-FM Minneapolis radio morning DJ's that I liked a lot (male, pre the Van Patrick & Cheryl Kaye days, possibly ... unless it WAS Van?). He said that this CD still today remains his very favorite album of all time.I took a chance, knowing NOTHING about the IG, and I was so pleased. This is an outstanding CD that spins in my CD player often.Hey, if somebody knows who that male DJ was because you heard him say it too ... or Mr. DJ, if you read this ... please identify who you were; and THANKS! I'd really be curious to know who else is on their favorites list!Just bought Rites of Passage. Not nearly as impressed with it so far, as I was with the first release by IG, but I have to give it time to grow on me.Buy the first IG CD. You will not be disappointed. It gets my highest rating of being a PT ("play through") CD!"

"Their voices are powerful and the harmonizing artistic. Hard to believe voices and acoutistic guitar is all that they needed to make such a fun and fantastic CD."
