Despite Our Differencesby Indigo Girls
The title that Amy Ray and Emily Saliers chose for this, their 12th studio album, is rather surprising, given the almost familial familiarity they've displayed over their long and winding career -- a closeness that's every bit as evident in the grooves of Despite Our Differences as it's ever been. Sure, it's possible to figure out/i>/a>

The duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers once again offer up a set of plugged in rockers and folky ballads, and once again they do so in perfected fashion. After nearly two decades together, the Indigo Girls continue to enthrall with lovely harmonies, eloquent lyrics and an array of instrumentation (banjo, harmonica, violin, piano). Guest vocalist Pink helps get the party started on the propulsive rock nugget "Rock N' Roll Heaven's Gate," while critic fave Brandi Carlisle lends her pipes to the soothing, wispy closer "Last Tears." In between Ray and Saliers trade off on vocal duties with a nice combo of take the top down anthems and heartrendering love songs. After two decades and 12 albums,the Indigo Girls offer up material that is as closer to fine as anything on the charts nowadays.
