Doesn't Harry Shearer use this as the background music for his "Clinton-Something" skits on Le Show?

That is precisely what is so disturbing about it. It's like imagining your parents having sex-horrifying.

I second that. So, horrible six times over.
Gods, Bill. Fantastic set. Makes me want to be somewhere I can crank it and really enjoy it! ~spin~

I could easily crash with this music...it brings out my psycothic side
Psycothic...is that a combination of Psychedelic and Goth?
Love it! :bananajumprope:
I can just see all the Hippies of the Pacific North West dancing around like Fir trees in the wind... kinda funky ... celtic and fun all at the same time
Lord of the Dance - Michael Flatley - goes Africa!
I liked it a lot :)

This is nice, but I'd rather hear more Hevia! :pray:

Please stop playing this overand over again. It's not that good. -5
this song is wearing me out. F.
broken here too. the office is so quiet without sound :( I run the 128k stream...tried 64k and 32k and it all sounds the same... silence. :(
Yup, the Afro Celt Sound System seems to be broken . . .
Is there something broken on this track? My sound suddenly went silent, but the player still says the song is playing...
While it does kind of remind of Riverdance (on crack) I have come to the conclusion that it serves a higher purpose for me. I aprreciate the stuff that I really DO like much more after listening to some stuff that I may not be so crazy about.
They should have named this Colonic.
I LOVE this album! It so kicks a**! :roflol:
Good tune. Really keeps you moving. I highly recommend it and will be buying it.

It's this kind of music that bugs me most about this place. This is the kind of drivel that should be left for eurotrash compilation cds they peddle at 2 a.m. Hell it sounds like it's straight outta 1985. Ick. I thought the comparison to a synthesizer demo track was 100% accurate. Jeez, guys.. can we cut down on the number of sounds this tune has? Mediocre at best. I don't get the obsession with world music. It's like the bar gets lowered just for the sake of playing a snappy Irish jig or an African drum. Yawn. Seriously.
Absolutely, my friend ... as a lover of Irish traditional music and (for as much as I know it) African music, I detest this sort of stuff. Awful crossover drivel. Reminds me of 'Riverdance' or, horror of horrors, Michael Flately. I dislike this in the same way that I dislike most (but not all) of Indian/trance crossover and the efforts that Massive Attack and others made with Nusrat Fatah Ali Khan. But then, you put it so eloquently already, I rest my case :clap:

Hence the label eclectic . . . :) For me, I like this quite a lot. I don't care if music comes from America, England, Ghana, Samoa, Iceland, the Crab Nebula, or the alley behind my house - what matters is the music, not the label. It's about imagination and execution, and this track has both in spades.
You know, I think playing Santana before this really hightens my appreciation for ACSS even more...It's probably one of the most stark contrasts you could have... You have on one hand a tired, repetitive brand of music with only a few old guitar licks, and that's followed by a wonderful, innovative group with sweet sounds. I'm not saying old is bad, or that Santana was never innovative, but c'mon, it's only innovative the FIRST time. The 500 times after that, it's the same dull drone. This is nice, however. 8.
AfroCelt--there's a concept! I like the rhythm--fun and unique.

Yeah, it sounds UNCANNILY like the first track from CD I bought at a Bowfire concert (Bowfire is another 'troupe' ala stomp, LoftheDance, et.al. -- all fiddlers, violinists, cellos, etc.) I'll have to find out who ripped off who. Still like it though -- I'll have to upload the Bowfire cut.
pretty dern eclectic groove on......sure hope I don't wake up the neighbors this morning :sunny.gif:
For lots of fun with this song, check out "Noodle." I think that there was a version included with the CD when it came out. It has been updated, including a Mac OS X version, at: https://www.noodleheaven.com/ There are other Peter Gabriel related tracks to noodle with there. Some are free. Some cost money. Some require you to own a specific CD or DVD. Bleah to that, but it's fun. Basically, they provide an "organic" interface to a collection of source tracks to the song. For a repeating, jigging song like "Colossus," this works quite well. I've also tried pg's "Growing Up" using Noodle. I know that "The Tower That Ate People" is also available, to name another RP track.
More! More! I definitely need to get a CD from these people! :roflol: :-({|= \:D/ :-({|= :roflol:
I need this group's CD! This would keep me awake at my desk :music:
Utterly birlliant. And I bet the live version is just as good.

This song is okay but WAY too long... ugh
Anyway 9 till 3 that\'s not work!
Please no more of this. For some reason I started to picture riverdance on steroids. Just wouldn\'t go awaya...

It can be your theme song!
I think it gets better towards the end.

How many booties do you have?
No cat\'s in my garden!
Would someone let the bee outa the jar? :evil:

It's not...
If this was background music in a bar it might be ok. It\'s way too manic for work! I\'m having shortness of breath!
A little of this goes a very, very long way. It\'s o.k., but I much prefer the Chieftains. After about the third minute of this my head wants to split open.

I think you nailed it... though, so far, it hasn't grown on me.

This song is a unique mix and pleasant to listen to. Enjoy it emensly each time it is played. Helps add the variety other stations lack.

Really nice - reminds me of old English country songs that I used to Morris dance to.
Sounds like a demo CD at an Organ store. \"Look at all the pretty noises you can make.\" Over and over and over....
