  • As one half of the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray helped make the '80s and '90s safe for smart, modern folk-rock. On her solo debut, Ray takes a step to the left of the mainstream, adopting a sound much rougher than that of the Indigo Girls and working with underground rockers like producer/engineer Chris Stamey and the Rock*A*Teens.
  • Things start out in appropriately gritty fashion, with an energetic punk bluegrass ode to Johnny Rotten. Along the way, Ray touches on everything from the Neil Young/Crazy Horse-like guitar rock of "Laramie" to the frantic lo-fi raving of "Mountains of Glory" and the low-key acoustic balladry of "Lazyboy." Those who come to STAG expecting an Indigo Girls redux will be surprised to find that Ray's approach here is aimed at a much less pop-oriented audience.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (3/16/01, p.68) - "...Ray's rocking songs earn her honorary riot grrl stripes [and] saves this from becoming what could have been a drab discourse on gender politics..." - Rating: B+

Q (10/02, p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Unexpectedly vibrant, like riot grrl with tunes..."

Alternative Press (6/01, pp.81-2) - 3 out of 5 - "...Comfortable in its noise, STAG proves that, even plugged-in, Ray remains closer to fine."
