Everytime I get in my car to go on a trip even when a know my destination I still love to listen to track 2 "Get out the map." I saw the girls live a couple of years ago. Definetly one of the best concerts I've ever been to.

"The Indigo Girls, I think, hit their pinnacle with Rites of Passage. It would seem that the craft of the song has some to do with the meter and control of the introspection. I don't feel I learn anything new from listening to the recent CDs of the Indigo Girls, but they still have a remarkable and unique sound that puts them high on the music food chain. Even if their whining about not being taken seriously as artists is a little annoying considering the huge following they have and will continue to have in the future. Well, if you are new to the Indigo Girls, check out any of their albums. You might like what you hear."

"It was the beginning of a few albums of abberrations for the Indigo Girls - most resulting in some winning, very good songs, and some less winning, not so good songs. That doesn't all add up on Shaming of the Sun, famous for being the first "mostly electric" album the girls had made - Amy's rock number "Scooter Boys" scatters her "blood of the Indians" chest-thumping a little too liberally, and "Cut it Out" strains at the sensuality of hard rock. But certain new attempts are outstanding - "Leeds" is packed with Emily Sailers' poetic dissections as usual, but set up as a piano ballad, it's strikingly original. "Caramia" may be the most theatrical ballad the band's created, but it's also amongst the most striking and heartfelt. And the single "Shame on You" is the sort of fun, pop-radio single the girls had seemed to be striving for ever since "Closer to Fine," but it's actually much better - it's nimble, sexy, and even a little politically furious. It's everything the Girls strive for - and sometimes succeed at."
