    The sonic template, all the same, keeps this album less intense, and far less thundering. It shimmers in a light rain interspersed with sunshine. Still, haziness persists.

    It’s a not a crime for a revivalist outfit like the Black Angels to occasionally lapse into flower-power corniness; if delivered with a little self-awareness, it adds to the appeal of the anachronistic package. What’s not forgivable on Indigo Meadow is the pretension.

    It's a pleasant-enough swirl; more so whenever vintage organs pipe in. But it never expands your mind.

    Despite coming across as borderline pastiche, Indigo Meadow's reproduction of throwback sounds comes from a genuine place. [Mar-Apr 2013, p.90]

    Unfortunately, Indigo Meadow is a so-so affair that never quite fulfills expectations.

    Will Maas be forever obsessed with the good–evil dichotomy? The answer’s in their moniker--and their monitors.

    For the most part the Angels charitably continue to breath life into a ragged genre with a looseness and playfulness that belies their serious business name.
