Man on the Run is the sixth studio album by the British band Bush, released on 21 October 2014, through Zuma Rock Records. It marks the band's second studio album to be recorded under its current incarnation (Gavin Rossdale, Robin Goodridge, Chris Traynor, Corey Britz), which reformed in 2010 after an eight-year hiatus and released The Sea of Memories in 2011. The album release in 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the band's debut album, Sixteen Stone.
This current album, Man on the Run (2014), peaked at on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The title sounds strikingly similar to the lyrics of a song called Fugitive on the Golden State album. The lyrics refrain with "I am a fugitive on the run". So will they generate some new found excitement with this newest release? Gavin Rossdale is an extraordinarily talented grunge vocalist, whose style is often imitated by other rock singers. He is known for his bold, yet humble intonations, that are accentuated with some slightly throaty vocal distortions. Bush used to be a guitar oriented band, featuring two guitarists, all the way up to the Golden State album.
At its core, Man on the Run is just like any other Bush album. Gavin Rossdale’s raspy British drawl and the band’s generic post-grunge instrumentation still sound just like they did in 1996; now, whether or not that’s a good trait is still up for discussion. There aren’t many risks taken or deviations from the standard formula, and honestly, that’s to be expected. Two decades into their career, Bush are still making, for the most part, the same music they were before the turn of the century
On The Road is the second live album (two LPs, reissued on one CD) by English rock band Traffic, released in 1973. Recorded live in Germany, it features the Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory lineup plus extra keyboardist (for live performances) Barry Beckett.
Man On The Run. This song is by Bush and appears on the album Man on the Run (2014). Do you see yourself in thisI know the way you want itIt's a slow road to the beyondShe gave me nearly everythingThe kiss of life and everything in betweenDynamite and we disappearLike smoke on the horizonI thought that I could lean on youForever, forever. Man on the runYou better step asideMan on the runRunning for his lifeMan on the runRacing through the badlandsRacing through the badlands.
Following up Bush’s 2011 album The Sea Of Memories – itself presented after a decade’s absence by the band, and with only half the original line-up – Man On The Run arrives on the 20th anniversary of Bush’s debut, Sixteen Stone. Any notable evolution is not immediately apparent. Straightforward chord progressions are overlaid with single-line guitar hooks wedded to melodramatic choruses of a rousing nature. It’s been a winning recipe for them, certainly, but the ingredients aren’t quite of the quality they were.
