  1. Though audibly relaxed in their freedom from the label system, the duo delivers a few real emotional stunners.
  2. Poseidon and the Bitter Bug is not only solid all the way through, it feels fresh, clean, new, and chock-full of beauty.
  3. The Indigo Girls prove themselves, again, to be artists whose metaphoric turns of phrases evoke a hard-up world and invoke a more meaningful existence.
  4. Poseidon follows the pretty but predictable model that has worked for the Indigo Girls for 20 years, and outdoor pavilion crowds everywhere will no doubt be thrilled with the result.
  5. A fascinating listen on its own, Poseidon flashes back in fine fashion on how the Indigo Girls sounded two decades ago.

    Amy and Emily have only gotten better with each and every CD they release. They go from a rockin' feel good song, to a heart touching Amy and Emily have only gotten better with each and every CD they release. They go from a rockin' feel good song, to a heart touching ballad within a few strums. Being independent now, they are able to come across to their fans more freely. Definitely my favorite! Expand

    Too many critics have prejudged this band. They've locked it and its sounds in their angst-ridden teenage past. But the Indigo Girls Too many critics have prejudged this band. They've locked it and its sounds in their angst-ridden teenage past. But the Indigo Girls have grown up and their music and lyrics have matured. It is time for some listeners to get out those Q-Tips, clean out that self-absorbing nostalgic ear gunk, and listen anew to this wonderful album. Expand

Their harmonies and style changes are brilliant. this is a band that has never really missed a beat over all these years. One of the real gems in all of music. Buy the double disc pack. The acoustic cd is amazing! Expand
