An incredible album with beautiful lyrics and passionate music.
Every song I listen to seems to be my favorite Belinda song ever, and then the next track plays and I think that one is the best ever.
Daniel Jolley
The best upbeat songs are Runaway Horses, La Luna and of course Leave A Light On.

When I first got this, I was simply taken aback at how this outstripped her previous two solo albums, which knocked me dead. Any doubts I had that she would lose her touch was put to rest when I listened to this over and over during my stay at NMSU.
"Leave A Light On" is by far the best solo song she's done, this lush song combines Go-Go's pop with stylings from her first two solo albums. And guess who does the slide guitar solo midsong? George Harrison. George also does twelve-string and bass on "Deep Deep Ocean."
"Vision Of You" is the best ballad she's ever done, and the Spanish guitar by Rick Nowels enhances the wistful mood this song evokes. Her sugary voice is put into its best effect here.
"Summer Rain" is a mid-paced dance number that bursts into a crescendo with the catchy chorus. The brisk string arrangement throughout the song adds much to this, the second single.
"Shades Of Michelangelo," the closing ballad, outdoes "Love Never Dies" from her Heaven On Earth album, but struggles for top honours with "Vision Of You." This heartfelt song has idealistic musings, where she's "painting a perfect world/with shades of Michelangelo." Belinda wrote this song with her ex-bandmate Charlotte Caffey.
Rick Nowels, best known for his work with Stevie Nicks, works wonders for Belinda as he did for the "Welsh Witch." He produced the album. Even Ellen Shipley, one of Stevie's backup singers, contributes. In fact, both of them co-wrote most of the songs on this album. However, X.Y. Jones' guitar work introduced a slightly harder edge to Belinda's sound, and it's a wonder here.
Kenny Aronoff, best known as John Cougar Mellencamp's drummer, drums on most of the tracks.

It's rare for me to find a CD on which I love every song. However, Belinda Carlisle consistantly pulls off this arduous task with her beautiful melodies and witty lyrics: "How can a candle ever burn so bright, casting a shadow on my life? I am blinded by your light, even without you!" I've made it a commitment of mine to own every CD she's published in America and abroad, and as an experienced listener I can safely say that "Runaway Horses" is by far her best non-anthology album. Belinda will brighten your day with "Leave a Light On," take you for a wild ride with "Runaway Horses," and show you true beauty with "Vision Of You." My personal favorite song of all time, "Summer Rain" has an atmospheric melody that makes you feel like you're with Belinda at the train station that fateful night... you truly must hear it to believe it. Belinda shows off her diversity with "La Luna," bringing back memories of Gloria Estefan's slower Latin-based songs. "(We Want) The Same Thing" is one of Belinda's "hardest" rock songs, a strange and wonderful mix of her own and Pat Benetar's styles. The next three songs, "Deep Deep Ocean," "Valentine," and "Whatever It Takes" offer the simple and catchy tunes that Belinda's fans have come to expect. In the final track, "Shades of Michaelangelo," Belinda once again dishes up a melody that allows you to almost see her splashing paint on her musical canvas with a sudden spurt of artistic flair. Without a doubt, Belinda is the musical equivalant of Michaelangelo.
This CD is definately worth it... I would pay over three times that much if necessary. The only drawback to this CD is the fact that it's only 48 minutes long... why oh why couldn't it be 480 minutes? :)

Format: Audio CD
Probably the greatest pop album ever recorded, Runaway Horses showcases that Belinda's career was only beginning with the previous effort, Heaven on Earth, and not ending. The album slid quickly off the US charts, yet reached double-platinum status in the UK and Australia, and is probably better remembered than its more sucessful predecessor.
Every song is lavishly produced, with sweeping vocals from the lady who must be a gift from the heavens, and every song is so easily single worthy. Its a shame this album wasn't promoted to death - its likely that it would be remembered as one of the greatest pop albums ever recorded, and that's saying a lot.
Leave a Light On and (We Want) The Same Thing both sport high tempo, amthemic beats that made 'Heaven is a Place on Earth' such a success, while La Luna, Summer Rain and Valentine settle for the softer approach, each telling tales of lost or unrequaited love. La Luna and Summer Rain stand as two of the greatest and most loved songs of her entire career - the latter being Belinda's personal favourite to this day.
Everyone can take something away from this album. The lyrics are beautiful, the orchestrations beautiful, and Belinda sounds every bit as stunning as she looks. Why did her US career take a nosedive after this epic? Who knows. Belinda's downfall (which began just after this album's launched when it slid further and further down the charts) is one of the music industry's greatest crimes. She has more talent in one of her fingernails than any modern day chart topper you can care to name, and a superb lineup of songs.
I guarantee anyone who buys this album will not be disappointed. It is, quite simply, of an insurmountable level of excellence. A work of musical art that does not deserve to be forgotten.
