This was my second Indigo Girls album after "Nomads, Indians. .", which I had bought because "Hammer and a Nail", and though ( at least in the beginning ) the album did not quite live up to "Nomads", two tracks were immediate hits - "Closer to Fine" was, I believe, a minor hit; and "Tried to be True" is equally strong with its terrific intro; REM are backing the girls om that one. Emily's melodic ballad "Love's Recovery" is another favourite. The appearance of Michael Stipe on "Kid Fears" is pleasant surprise, and the re-recording of "Land of Canaan" is a much better production than the original version.
A few of the other tracks, may be a little forgettable, but all in all a great album from Indigo Girls - one their best.
