Well I think, people who don't like this tune basically don't like guitar and prefer computers. I'm sure they also don't like vegetables.
 

Perhaps you should go and see someone about your computerphobia.
I'm in guitar heaven.

Could anyone enlighten me about what the PPA refers to in the title of this song? Or is it just meant to be onomatopoeic, like some Austin Powers interjection? Somehow the Perennial Plant Association or the Punjab Police Academy didn't seem to fit.

I disagree. Yes, their style attracts the ear but on extended listening you realize that's all they intended, that their ideas are not new or unique. Wile not unpleasant it gets pretty boring.

talented
It just doesn't appeal to me....it kind of picks at my brain and I can't find the mute quick enough.

It's all about their characteristic percussion...
Such beauty and genius.  Thank you for playing it.

Their talent hurts my brain.  I swear - I can fall asleep to RadioParadise, but I wake up when I hear one of their songs, and I automatically know it's them.  I WISH I had such mastery over a guitar.  They are beyond amazing.
 





Yes they are really terrific. We saw them last year at The Ryman and after the show when we went over to Tootsies for a beer, guess who was there! Only a couple people recognized them; they looked great, considering they had played a show for 2-1/2 hours. Nice people too.

Ecellent album.
Heard one Rodrigo Y Gabriela song... heard 'em all.
Impressive!
Wow, just wow. Love 'em.

I have to agree! I have come to recognize their talents and dont have to run to the squeezebox to see how I'm enjoying so.

Agree completely. If you see their YouTube videos, they are even more amazing "in person" because they are so talented but approachable. I dream of being at one of their early intimate concerts and would really like to see them live now.

Very good playing; incredible talent, but man this shit gets old.

Far from cheesy, this is incredible talent and I'd love to see them live sometime. Their YouTube vids captivate me.

Please stop responding to manbird's pictorial trolling. . .



These two have got it all going on conceptually.

  I, too. YouTube has some great videos of them and STH is my fav.


The picture on the alblum cover is far better than the song (if comparing "apples to oranges" that is).



Really talented young musicians!

STOP TORMENTING ME! At any moment I just KNOW that this is going to break into "Walk Don't Run."
somehow reminds me of that fabulous 1977 Larry Coryell/Phillipe Catherine recording Twin House, but those were stony daze
Their two latest CDs has been running warm at home. Really great music - impressive!

That's a duo with odd background :) The music sounded interesting... Gave it a 7 and shall do some research and see if the rest is as good.

 
I bought the album based on what I'd heard at RP, and it's been a regular in my car stereo ever since.  It's pretty consistent throughout, I think.

Quick, where did I leave my tap shoes, I gots to dance to this one!! :clap:

I only heard these the other day on here and now I'm listening to as much as possible from them! I think they are outstanding! I love their cover of stairway to heaven!
very good music
this is superb! absolutely adore their cover of Metallica's Orion! :dancingbanana_2:
You can definitely hear their thrash metal roots in this one. I like!
