(50% awesome, 40% good, OK, meh, 10% skip out of 10 and 12 counting deluxe)

5 AWESOME

*CLOSER TO FINE

KID FEARS

LAND OF CANAAN

These songs are all such staples! I consider these 5 songs the epitome of their catalog. Because they are dark, symbolic, have all the harmonies, and are super-concert-friendly. I’ve been to Indigo Girls’ concerts many times, and on EVERY one they closed with the perpetual favorite, Closer to Fine. Which sounds boring. But it never has been boring, because they always invite their opener to perform it with them. And always different instruments are used, so it never sounds identical.

4 GOOD
