Why can't all bagpipe music sound this good?
Bob Carey | Washington, DC | 02/20/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I used to think that bagpipes were the missing link between music and noise. Then I saw the Tartan Amoebas in Edinburgh and realized how versatile of an instrument it can be. And in the hands of this band, it's phenomenal. I've never heard a band so completely control this instrument as well as blend it in with bass guitars and horns, especially so on "Funky Pipes." Get this album and sit back to enjoy a rollicking good time. Now, how do we get this band to the States?"
Bagpipes will never be the same again

"The Tartan Amoebas bringing your the funkiest renderings of the sounds of Scotland ever digitally immortalised. The Blues Brothers meet Braveheart in the opening 'Funky Bagpipies'. The rest is composed of traditional tunes delivered with a great brass section. When the Amoeabas put on a thrash at the Edinburgh Festival it's Brigadoon on speed !"
Love it, love it, love it!

"I was introduced to this great album when my daughter's highland teacher used "Pinch of Snuff" for a choreography (think Highland goes line dancing, cowboy hats and all. It worked fabulously thanks to the Amoebas). This disc was the most wonderful thing I'd heard since disocovering Capercaille. The arrangements are fresh, eclectic and imaginative. I would love to know who "Miss Stewart" is. She must be one hot gal to have inspired such a great tune. Definitely need to get the rest of the TA collection."
