An album that finally puts bagpipes on the map - and not just the Scottish map. This band has artfully crafted the bagpipes with incredibly powerful percussion sounds, pounding base guitar, haunting vocals and incredibly rhythmic keyboard backing. An unusual and instantly engaging compilation of traditional Scottish tunes mixed with more modern pop classics all given a distinctive Celtic twist. Never a fan of traditional pipe band music I have seen pipe music in a whole new light and can finally turn up the volume on this new and exciting evolution of an instrument that dates back at least 2,000 years. This album will rekindle everyones "Celtic heart" and leave you breathless as you get swept along on the sheer energy and enthusiasm of the music. Can't wait to see this band live!

If you are a piping or traditional music purist I can guarantee this album is NOT for you. If you have the Chilli's first album( I do!) then you are in for something completely different.
A rich mixture of rock classics as you have never heard them before and arrangements that really work. The recording itself is technically perfect with bigh deep basses and high pitches of the pipes. There is of course something for everyone and there is a wee extra track at the end, just what you need for a Hogmanay party. A couple of Scottish classics are also provided.
I admit this album may not be to everyone's taste but then you just can't please them all. How they will top this with their next album remains to be seen.
Have you oredered your copy??

An exciting, innovative piece of work from a group of enthusiastic instrumentalists, bringing together the old and new from the worlds of scottish traditional and contempory folk and that of rock/power ballad.

Sure to bring bagpipes and scottish music in general into the forefront of the minds of the general public and keen music enthusiasts alike.

Top Class

This is a fantastic cd, the only thing better is seeing them live. I heard about it through word of mouth and then saw them when they did a free concert in Tobermory, Isle of Mull. They were so good I bought the cd the next day. When I went to my parents my dad nicked off with my cd so we had to buy him their collection of cds for his Christmas to get mine back. They are brilliant musicians and this cd is a must!

The title of this album "Bagrock to the masses" is certiantly appropriate. The Red Hot Chilli Pipers have brought piping from a niche market out to a much wider audience.
Even those who aren't keen on pipe music will enjoy this album.

Nice little CD with some great tracks. Not the bet piping I have ever heard, but some pretty good contemporary and traditional tracks, played well given some of the complex tunes.

The CD is in my car deck since I bought it and I listen to it most days so I suppose that just about sums it up. Tracks from the Red Hot Chilli Pipers are also played daily on a mid morning BBC local radio show by a presenter who loves the music.

covers of hugh classics like Queens "We will Rock You" and Coldplays "Clocks". The band has put a new light on the Bagpipes-playing some classic pipe songs but with a modern feel. Their covers are incredible, the best as mentioned above. If you havn't heard them yet then buy this album!

I was introduced to the "chilli pipers" sound by a friend, and I just loved it! I had to buy this CD to really appreciate the genius behind this modern take on bagpipes. It is quite extraordinary to hear rock music played like this, but it does work..!! It is superb..!!
