    Their 14th studio album finds the Indigo Girls operating as powerfully as at any time in their career, on a set of uncommonly strong songs performed with the kind of typically understated Nashville polish that affords their signature harmonies the full spotlight.

    Combining their soft and sensual harmonies and energetic, pop song craft into a set of lovely songs, Beauty Queen Sister confirms The Indigo Girls are still making invigorating and emotional music, have plenty left to say and show no signs of slowing down or easing into nostalgia.

    Beauty Queen Sister showcases the Indigo Girls in top traditional form; their audience will no doubt delight in this, especially because the songs are expertly crafted and, as usual, intimate and honest to the point of discomfort.

    Beauty Queen Sister will please fans that already love Indigo Girls, but the repetitive nature of the album might struggle to bring in new listeners.

    Emotional sappiness isn't a new concept for the Indigo Girls. Unfortunately, neither is the rest of Beauty Queen.

    The harmonies remain pretty, but the smoothness of those Nashville sidemen exposes the thinness of the songs. [Nov 2011, p.86]

    Great album! One of the few duos that has stayed together and continue to make relevent and trend setting music lyrically. They speak often times what most people do not have the guts to. 30 yrs later............RRHOF shall soon call their name. Shrimp again misses out on a brilliant band! Collapse
