RUN­AWAY VS. VI­O­LIN CON­CERTO NO. 5 IN A MA­JOR:

SundayXtra - - MUSIC -

Mozart took mu­sic from other cul­tures and this piece is nick­named The Turk­ish. The song gal­lops, waltzes and changes on a dime while re­main­ing part of one risky, un­re­fined whole. Run­away, which has an ac­com­pa­ny­ing 40-minute film, be­gins with a Kubrick-es­que pi­ano score and fea­tures a mem­o­rable cho­rus with The-Dream sing­ing back­ground vo­cals. An al­bum high­light, the song is con­fes­sional, catchy and fresh, but Beecher doesn’t think it de­vel­ops. Run­ning over nine min­utes, the song’s later noodling is self-in­dul­gent, but West’s per­son­al­ity reigns supreme.
