The energy in this track is phenomenal! Thanks again, Bill! :-3
Heading  over to the UK to see Afro Celt on Saturday!  New album coming out!
Repetitive EDM drives me nuts.

this song is a bit long but I really like this band, new style and they certainly wake you up...

No kidding!  This song should be played only on weekday mornings!

wow that was really long and dull

RP used to be semi-relaxed high quality music. Now you are all over the place: plain pop songs and major annoyances like this. And then suddenly a classical piece..

 
I started listening to RP 7 years ago because it had such a wide-ranging mix.  Hasn't changed much in that time.  We're all going to dislike some of Bill's choices, and he's given us a way to skip them.  What more do you want?

And there are people like me who long ago discovered the Afro Celts on this station (among many other artists) and have since purchased every disc they've made.  One person's annoyance is another's high quality music and RP appears to have most all of us covered.

The leprechauns are OK, Bob. Bill set the turntable to 78 by mistake.

Ha Ha!!!
Saw these guys perform this, standing 25 feet away in the pogoing crowd. Far King good.
Then I moved back up to the balcony...........the sound was much better.  So Far King good!.

And how would you have come by the knowledge what leprechauns on crack sound like? Amazing! How does one obtain such wisdom? {#Whistle}

I connected to this group thru Peter Gabriel! Good to hear it. Good set here too.

 
Yes, me as well.  I believe he has produced all of their albums; one that I have he also plays with them on Volume 3: Further in Time track 3: When You're Failing.  Very nice.  Sinead O'Connor also has recorded with them as well.  I really love the mix of various traditional sounds combined together.Vol3-FIT.jpg
I can only take so much Celtic music and this is going over my limit.

Similiar musical thought as in Khachaturian's Sabre Dance. 
Thanks for sharing!

A dialog-less, romanticized chase scene from Miami Vice.
(edit) OK, it started out that way....
I like it.  It's 'different'.  I have never heard any of their music before.  

I am slowly realizing that I'm more interested in novelty than eclectics.  

It's unfortunate that since I exclusively use Starbucks for my internet connection (and spend a vast amount of time there) that most all of the really nice/mainstream/current songs are played way too frequently by both them and RP. Spring Standards is one of many such.

Nice!
I like these guys, and I'm enjoying the world/electronica set this afternoon.  way to go, RP!

Hi, I am seeing Radiohead tonight.. In Montreux Switzerland.. cant wait.. :-)
Sounds a little like Brian "Nerve Net" Eno mind melded with them.  
A little bit of a letdown after M'bifé balafon and Stay Hungry, but AC tried...

This is making me very anxious for the next song!
"This is giving me a rave flashback.  Usch.  Uff.  Oy. Uff.  AAAAHHHHH!"  - I second that feeling!

It'd be a decent segue too.

Afro + Celt = Rock 'n' roll, baby!!!{#Cowboy}


Run, run, run.....
Just about any Afro Celt music gets my tempo up. Great to hear bicycling to work or anytime I need a lift.
Badass!
Yet another group I had not heard until listening to RP and damn glad to have found it!
Endless.  And not in a good way.
Love this. The combination of musical styles is magical.

I think it would be great when making hot luv to someone u luv. Nice thumping beat that makes the body want to rock!
Even has the orgasm finish!

Hideous. If you want didge play Aphex Twin "Didgeridoo". If you want trance play Astral Projection, KoxBox anything but this.

I second that.
You don't cease to amaze me!! :)

I used to listen to RiCA back in the late 70s. It was an interesting approach. Is it available on CD?
Talk about being in two places at once!

Best reason for overthinking a rating I've read. :clap: I like it anyway. :dance:
Dude, ACSS is a genuine mishmash from the get-go. That's their whole premise. I don't follow how you can like their other tunes and not be ok with the meld on Big Cat. Steven_G wrote:

Now this is typical ACSS - a zippy, lively melange of influences with a strong Scottish flavour, and BIG drums. Good stuff.

Nothing wrong with that, as long as they speak in the same rhythm

Like it. More fresh stuff.
This is an absolutely mesmorizing album... a must have for any world or eclectic listener. The definition of driving music, and one of the very, very few RP cuts which I've given a 10 (check out my rating dist).
Fun working music. :bananasplit:

How about Adrian Belew's "Big Electric Cat" INSTEAD?!?!
got your wish! listen on...yeah howdy!!
This song makes me want to move! That's one driving beat and tempo. :bananajumprope: (I'd like to say something more enlightening, but the day I'm having at work has sapped my mind dry. It's moving as hard and fast as this song.)
Not usually a fan of them, but this has me buzzzzzing along at a very tedious task. Yum! :whistle:
With most of their songs, I like what they get to, but don't like how long it takes to get there. Each of the sections that they establish as they build could be a bit shorter and the song would be better for it.
This song made me rev up my volume by a few notches. Bananalicious!!! :bananasplit: :bananajam: :bananajumprope:
i love the blendage of cultures and genres that create the AfroCelts. get all five of their albums, well worth it.
EXCELLENT :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:
Quite possibly my new favorite album. Amazing track. Listen to this one with a subwoofer - there are alot of great lows in there.
One of their best if you'd ask me. Super :clap:

When I first heard this I had to look to see which TD song actually made it onto the list and was shocked to see that this wasn't them. I find it curious that this gets such a good reaction while the only TD song that made it onto the list was from the Risky Business soundtrack while half a dozen TD tracks have been rejected
Leg bouncing, annoying other cube mates. Cool song!
Very nice indeed! I usually am not the biggest fan of electronic music- unless of course it is done well. this was so groovy and really helped me get through some tough work which required speed and concentration! sweet.
As clichéd as it may sound, this song was an aural journey. And I loved the trip. Most excellent.
Cool, hadn't heard this one.
