    Indigo Meadow is an assured, exciting piece of work.

    Indigo Meadow is their first to perfectly balance melody with noise. [Jun 2013, p.94]

    Produced by John Congleton, the album bridges the quartet's trademark dark reverberations with the fun-house psych of 2010 breakthrough Phosphene Dream, only with more studio effects than all four sides of The Beatles and an emphasis on the Doors' Soft Parade-era organ.

    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.

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

    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.
