This is just as good as "This Is Who We Are", definetly a must buy for anyone who loves melody in their punk.
Kyle VanWagner
This album, "Love At The Core", by Run Kid Run, is something completey different than your regular contemporary rock music.
Kyle
RKR has a creativity and unpredictability in their melodies and rhythms that keeps their music fresh, play after play.

I should start off by saying that I am no stranger to the pop-punk/emo-punk/powerpop/whateveryouwannacallit genre (both in the "Christian industry" and the "mainstream"). Bands like New Found Glory, Yellowcard, All American Rejects, Cartel, Number One Gun, The Ataris, Relient K, Hawk Nelson, FM Static, and MxPx find their way to my CD player on many occasions, and I enjoy them thoroughly.

With that said, I believe Run Kid Run's first record, "This is Who We Are," is one of the finest--if not the finest--in its genre. With "Love at the Core," my belief that Run Kid Run is at the top of their class has only been strengthened.

Their musical style is nothing new, but there's just something about this band and its music that is unique; listening to Run Kid Run just makes you feel great. I can't say for sure whether it comes from the consistently catchy melodies, Neil Endicott's layered guitar work, the distinct sound of David Curtis's vocals, or the perfectly balanced and layered production of James Paul Wisner--but the music here has a depth that many others simply lack. I would venture to say that it is a combination of all of these things mixed in with the heart of the band members, themselves. Indeed--if nothing else, Run Kid Run has HEART--and it shines through in their music.

There's just something about this music that is so wonderfully good-natured, honest, and unpretentious. The lyrics are not particularly sophisticated, but they have a simple authenticity to them; they flow with the music and fit it to a tee. Run Kid Run's tunes are catchy and accessible, all the while avoiding the sometimes repetitive, cheesy, and/or sickeningly-sugary-sweet phrases and melodies of some similar groups ("car sick" choruses, as I like to call them).

Every since the first Side Walk Slam release (former band of members in Run Kid Run) I've been a fan. When Josiah stepped up from bass to sing in the place of their original singer I was skeptical, and his first release at vocals, "Give Back", was a let down for me. However "...And We Drive" was a brilliant release, the melodies never stopped.

Then they dropped off the Tooth and Nail roster, and I was heartbroken. Then I noticed a new band, Run Kid Run, checked them out, and was surprised to find that the members of Side Walk Slam had added another member and changed their name. But their sound was even better.
The catchy pop-punk and great melodies were back, and in incredible abundance.

These guys create amazing songs, the melodies and lyrics are both something to admire. While not breaking any new ground, they manage to keep from falling into the bog that most pop-punk bands find themselves in. None of the songs run together, and every song has something fresh to offer.

This is just as good as "This Is Who We Are", definetly a must buy for anyone who loves melody in their punk.

I enjoyed the pop-punk energy of Run Kid Run's debut, "This Is Who We Are". I must say, they have recaptured the magic that made their debut so dynamic on their sophomore effort, "Love At The Core"!

This album will have a definite spot on my MP3 player's on-the-road rotation. It has been said, and I agree, that there isn't a huge difference in composition (musically or lyrically) from their previous release. However, it is equally as enjoyable!

Run Kid Run does manage to gently change up tempo and instrumentation enough between tracks to keep things moving along smoothly without sounding like carbon copies (as a number of other pop-punk and power-pop acts are notorious for).

Additionally, I am pleased with the fact that this is one of the few acts on a "Christian Label" who do not attempt to disguise or otherwise soften their positive Biblical values expressed through their lyrics. At the same time, I want to acknowledge that there is a difference between Christian's who are in a band for entertainment and those who are in the band as a ministry...I applaud the fact that Run kid Run manages to entertain without compromising the message.

I have been waiting for their second album and was not disappointed. The vocals and instuments are more polished and I think this album is better than their debut album. I was very impressed with their first album. They play with a lot of energy and enthusiasm which makes it a very enjoyable album to listen to. Run Kid Run is fast becoming my favorite Christian group.
