Run-Time Records

Welcome to Run-Time Records

This site includes lengthy, humorless reviews of about 5,000 records, with separate pages on several hundred artists.

Also, my name is Chase and I am the sole contributor to this site.

Let’s start by looking at my top three reviews shall we?

Nirvana – Smells Like Teen Spirit

“Smells Like Teen Spirit, I said when I first played the Nirvana’s hit single, “gave me an out of body experience”. It had my head banging by the end of the first verse. It was one of the best rock songs, and one of the best pop songs I’d ever heard. And although I had no idea what any of the words meant, I instantly fell in love with the song.

Smells Like Teen Spirit is easily one of the most iconic songs of its generation. And even 20 years later, it was exactly this thrill which completely started my lifetime. Something like this song is new, strange, gorgeous and fully accessible, but yet many still have not discovered this amazing anthem. This song will always be like a drug to me.
