Here's an appropriate comment made in 2004. 2004!!!! It appears that this station/ DJ continues to air incredibly old playlists with little regard for the listeners. For a breath of fresh air, I suggest you tune in some of the hipper DJ's out there, such as Gregg McVicar, who program new shows daily. I hear something new (and good) each time I listen.
 

I'm sure that Gregg (a friend of mine from way back) would agree that if we stopped playing anything that anyone ever complained about, we'd be left with a very bland mix of tunes...
It grew on me.... ...and grew and grew....

Luna Park, as  in Coney Island?  There's an idle tower there like this one. 
Love his voice, love this band, love this album!
Gotta "love" Rp listener's elitism where guys always place bad marks on stuff they don't understand lyrically, that is different, ethnic.

But play Thom Yorke, Bono, Lennon or any overhyped rubbish and you'll get instant 10s, even if burping was all there was....
“Everybody, sing along!”

"with little regard for the listeners."

Which means that you (for whatever reason) don't like it.  You are not "the listeners".  I know this will come as a shock to you.

'2004!!!' he shouted, unaware that by the looks of the commentdates after that one (2005, 2013, 2017) this track has only been played a handful in the past 14(!!!!) years. ;)
Och, aye! Even though I am a Scotsman, it makes me want to don my Kilt and brogues, grab my Sgian Dubh, and turn a reel -- I love it!
Stop, Stop!!!!!  You are making my cat dizzy!

Some editing would've made this an effective piece, as opposed to the overlong, wearying opus this is.
 
have to agree, sometimes less is more. lots better similar stuff to play instead of this.

Was thinking the very same thing. Looks like the photographer might have been able to sell the same photo twice.

The longer it went, the lower my rating dropped.  Don't need to hear that one again,

OOH! I like this! I generally don't like the Celtic stuff so much, but I love how they built up that energy to a climax! Edit: I like the stuff where dude isn't singing.
We don't have 'dudes' in Ireland Dear, just real men :-)

Answer to the question," What did Frodo say when he realized they were short one Wizard? " Gandalf me! What?.......oh.

I agree. AAAA. It starts off really strong and then completely loses focus, like for some reason, they wanted to get every possible kind of noise/note/instrument/vocalist all in one song. Too much! :stop:
how long is this song? it was celtic, it turned middle eatsern towards the end. Interesting!! tooo interesting :flamed.gif:
some of this sounds like it should be on the sound track for boondock saints. 8)
M0oving, get up and get going music. Love it.

Interesting. The instrumental combination seems to be somewhere between flamenco and classic celtic instruments with almost Sufi-style singing slid in between. This could definitely grow on me...
funny you should say Sufi-style -- and i hear where you're coming from, altho i'm pretty sure the lyrics are gaelic. as for the seeming spanish flavor you're hearing, there is/was a very strong celtic presense in spain long before the moors got there, so perhaps it's simply the emergence of the original musical styles coming through? i think this is pretty straight-up celtic, musically speaking (i'm no expert).

I dunno, I just don't dig this mixture...it is like oil and water
Kila are such a great band! Excellent live too. It's a pity all Radio Paradise has is Luna park. The albums Tog e go bog e and handel's fantasy are much better in my opinion!
KiLA is one of the bands I first heared on RP. I've just ordered one of there albums, which proves I like their music. Please play on ... :music:
SERIOUSLY is it really eclectic radio to play the same tired genre for 30 minutes? Bill, obviously you didn't get enough on St. Patty's Day. This Celtic Rock Cacophony has GOT to stop. I love RP, but the last half hour has nearly killed me.

Let's hope not. This is one of the rocking-est tunes I've heard in a long time. Keep it goin' guys!!

This song has great energy! There seems to be so many influences it is hard to tell which culture it comes from.
They're a Celtic band, but there's just a wee bit too much going on for me......
Great energy...I like this a lot. I'd like to hear some other cuts of theirs.
I like this song a lot, but there was one stretch in there where I thought it sounded like the music from the "Survivor" show.
Without a doubt, Kila is one of the best live bands I've ever seen. They put on an incredible show, and are well worth every penny. I couldn't reccomend them higher.
