The song itself received universal acclaim from music critics and was listed amongst the best songs of the year by several publications, including MTVPitchforkRolling StoneComplexNew York Postamongst others. Critics praised the song for its sincere subject matter, the openness of the song and the soulful, clean production.
The song quickly became one of the best reviewed singles released by West, with several critics noting that the track solidified West's commercial comeback with the public.
The song debuted and peaked on the Billboard Hot at position 12 and is the centerpiece of Runawaya minute short film featuring the majority of songs from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The song's nearly ten-minute music video features ballet dancers performing elaborate choreography. The music video received mostly positive reviews from music critics, who Runaway - Various - RockNRoll Forever Part One (CD) the scope of the video, the degree of creativity and the production design. The original cover Runaway - Various - RockNRoll Forever Part One (CD) for "Runaway" is a photograph by contemporary visual artist George Condo of a ballerina.
On October 4,the song was released onto the iTunes Store as the album's second single. Some of the inspiration of the song was derived from various media controversies, including West's interruption of recording artist Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards during her acceptance speech.
According to Pusha T, the song was recorded in Runaway - Various - RockNRoll Forever Part One (CD) March or April Pusha T had to record his verse several times, because West didn't think Pusha T was being mean enough for the concept of the song the first few times.
We recorded quite a few songs. He had the record already and was like, 'Yo, I want you on this record. He'll talk to you and get a feel for your perspective and your outlook on shit.
And later, he'll be like, 'Yo, I want you on this. I got a record that that perspective would fit on. He won't let you get away with it. West was so impressed with Pusha-T's performance while recording "Runaway" that he signed him under his own personal label.
While some of the inspiration of the song was drawn from the incident with Swift, it was noted that the song was not an apology. According to Troy L. Smith of Cleveland. Look at ya! After the composition continues, West ends the song with a three-minute unintelligible outro containing a distorted West utilizing a vocoder. The music mirrors that complexity. A midtempo funky-drummer beat glides underneath the melancholy, reverberating piano notes, while a deep, mushrooming bass tone threatens to swallow everything.
Brusque cello strokes contrast with elegiac violins, while a dirty guitar wends through the string section like a drunk, knocking over music stands and splattering mud on the white-tablecloth beauty.
Another explanation of the ending of the song is a commentary on how West, a rapper, has attempted to rap throughout his career but has been unable to do so because of the media. What's he saying or singing? Can't really make it out, can't really understand him. Which, no doubt, is how he feels his clumsy public statements are often received.
Slant Magazine's Matthew Cole described the song as West's greatest showcase as a writer. Few stars of comparable wattage would dare do the same. Thomas Conner of the Chicago Sun-Times cited the song as the thesis statement to the rest of the album, calling it "epic" and musing that West's "difficulty in communicating makes him a menace in the real world, but it's pretty compelling on record.

Anyway, this is a budget compilation, and within its 50 and some minutes you can hear some essential Tull - of course "Aqualung" and "Locomotive Breath", some less known but far from obscure numbers, and edit 1 from "Thick As A Brick".
This one is interesting if you are unfamiliar with "Thick As A Brick" album, because after discovering this acoustic intro, the whole album will be a very pleasant surprise. At least that happened in my case. The song is going into fade out precisely before electric guitar strikes and announces edit 2. However, the experience must be much less impressive if happened vice versa, I guess.
However, in conclusion the choice of the songs is not bad, really. Especially not for someone who is just entering the world of Jethro Tull. CD sleeve is not very informative; foreground is represented by not very good illustration of the Tramp, and background contains one Ian's photo with very grumpy face. Perhaps he was annoyed with the selection of the songs? I found this CD in my wife's jumbled mass of music one day recently and gave it a spin. First of all I must warn you that there's an overriding annoyance of too much emphasis on the higher register on everything that may well be an unforeseen side effect of that aforementioned "new" technology that gave birth to this set.
Secondly, it seems to me that there were a lot of songs along the lines of, say, "Beggar's Farm" that were in much more need of remastering at that juncture than most of these cuts but then I don't think the average Joe on the street would have eagerly plopped down his hard-earned cash for an eclectic mix of early and obscure Jethro Tull so I can savvy the marketing logic.
Plus Ian Runaway - Various - RockNRoll Forever Part One (CD) flute performance is superb. With "Aqualung" the brightness of the treble range is almost painful and is there really that much reverb on the original? Perhaps I just didn't notice before. I will always savor the piano intro to "Locomotive Breath" but when the heavy guitar bursts in I'm reminded of what I don't like about the tune. The infamous "Bungle in the Jungle" is included, of course, although I personally think this well-intentioned but too-commercial satire of modern society is a bit of a blight on their reputation.
Again, the high-end borders on excruciating and consider that my hearing is not the best in the world. The clever blend of old and modern instrumentation makes this song a treat to hear. The Mellotron on "Witches Promise" gives a broader dimension to the light atmosphere of this rarely-heard tune but it pales in comparison to the too-brief sample of "Thick as a Brick" that follows it, demonstrating the almost-criminal injustice of editing for the impulse buyer.
The tinny audio doesn't help, either, but this gallant yet ultimately disjointed track continues to just not work for me no matter how many times I give it a listen. The innocuous "Life's a Long Song" ends things on a decent note. I can't in good faith recommend this to anyone, but several excellent numbers keep it from being a travesty.
There are vastly better "greatest hits" albums from Jethro Tull to be had so that pretty much disqualifies the limited "Original Masters" from honest consideration in that category. If you are new to JT's music then please start with the exemplary "Thick as a Brick" album because there's a damn good reason it continues to hover at the pinnacle of the PA list. The song selection on this CD doesn't represent these guys very well and, while the audio might have sounded spectacular init hasn't aged gracefully at all.
I never liked every song here, still don't. The 3-minute version of "Thick As A Brick" is pointless. I think her manager controls that and it's really up to him and her. It seems to me like Joan Jett's manager just runs her life in every way, shape, or form.
He's very controlling and he has a real problem with me. He has a real issue with me. He sees me as a threat, which is ridiculous, because she's like my sister and I love Joan. It's ridiculous, it's uncalled for, and it's caused a little bit of rivalry between her and I, which is totally uncalled for. It's his fault. The hard part is just trying to communicate with Joan without her manager involved.
We had dinner a couple of years ago, what was supposed to be a girl's night out, and she brought her manager with her. So it's like, dude, answer the question. I'm trying to ask you a question. Are you interested in putting The Runaways back together? She never answered the question. Currie in May was asked about a reunion saying "I've played with all the girls individually, I've played with all of them — with Lita, with Joan, and, of course, with Sandy; I never did a show without her before she passed away.
So I'm the only one that's actually played with all the members. Lita and Joan have a little bit of an issue, and that just seems to be the problem. Lita doesn't Runaway - Various - RockNRoll Forever Part One (CD) Kenny.
I wish they would get over it, honestly, but I don't think so. Kenny was my manager during the early stages of making Blvds Of Splendor. We were very good friends for 20 years. But then, unfortunately, with the record, with them holding up Blvds Of Splendor for 10 years, that kind of eroded my friendship with him a bit. Jett went on to work with producer Kenny Laguna and after being rejected by 23 record labels, formed their own label, Blackheart Recordsin In doing so, Jett became one of the first female recording artists to found her own record label.
She also co-starred in the film Light of Day with Michael J. West continued her association with John Alcock once the group disbanded. She formed the Sandy West Band and toured California throughout the s and s. She also did session work with John Entwistle of The Who and became a drum teacher.
West was diagnosed with lung cancer in and died from it in October Upon leaving the Runaways, Currie released a solo album titled Beauty's Only Skin Deep and a duet album with her twin sister Marie CurrieMessin' with the Boysin which the duo was backed by members of Toto. Currie also appeared in a number of films, most notably Foxes with Jodie Foster. Throughout the s, Currie worked as a drug counselor for addicted teens and as a personal fitness trainer.
She married actor Robert Hays and they had a son together, Jake Hays. Runaway - Various - RockNRoll Forever Part One (CD) couple divorced in Currie still performs and records, remaining under contract with Blackheart Recordsbut her current passion is chainsaw carving which she displays at an art gallery in Chatsworth, California.
