Not bad, but also not outstanding. John is a typically AOR artists that always delivers decent to good AOR stuff, but never makes a real masterpiece. It's all well done, but nothing spectacular. Good, but it misses that extra touch.

From: Parr Date: May 17, 2004 at 7:25
A agree with you AOR freaky. Good records but not that little extra. I think Man With A Vision is his best record, btw.

From: koogles Date: May 17, 2004 at 11:56
John Parr's career nosedived with this release. You figure "St. Elmo's Fire" would have guaranteed his follow-up project some level of success, but 5 (maybe 6) people seemed to care. Then again, rewarming a song off your last record ("Don't Leave Your Mark on Me" Mark II) and throwing on a 6-month old song from the "American Anthem" soundtrack ("Two Hearts") gave "Running" all the freshness of day-old donuts.

From: Rycheage Date: May 26, 2004 at 23:51
A variety of sounds and influences throughout the album, but what it all boils down to is that John Parr is one talented individual. His style is unique, an unquestionable vocal flavor played over some hi-tech musicianship provided by some of Europe/UK's best players.

QUE CARAJOS COMO NO COMENTAN MAS SOBRE ESTE TREMENDO CANTANTE DE AOR, YA PUES CARAJO QUIERO MAS COMENTARIOS O SE LAS VERAN CONMIGO, JOHN PARR ES LO MAXIMO TIENE TREMENDOS TEMAS TANTO EN ESTE ALBUM COMO EN EL ANTERIOR POR DECIR UN TEMA Don't Worry Bout Me SI NO COMENTAN MAS LES VOY A METER UNA GOLPIZA A TODOS, ASI QUE A COMENTAR.

Much more polished/Hi-Tech than the debut, and probably non the better for it. I preffered the rawer sound of the debut. Nevertheless, this is still a 'goodie'. Material wise there are 2 standouts here - 'Two Hearts' is an excellent smooth AOR track, whilst 'Scratch' completely rips off the guitar riff & sound of 'Two Tribes' by Frankie Goes To Hollywood (it is bloody great though). The rest is competent,immaculately played/ Produced AOR.

From: ArnoldLancelot Date: April 4, 2005 at 13:03
It must be probably just taste, but unlike comments above, I take with me his first two records rather than thousands of aor cds out there. My humble opinion is that this togheter with his first one, are really amazing!(a bit light weight here and there but AMAZING!) Could sound as Robert Tepper's s/t at times, with a lot of hi-tech influences, but for me, the sax on the opening and the closing songs is stunning, don't miss it. A must have.

From: Geoff Date: September 17, 2005 at 0:44
I have to agree with Arnold. This ain't bad at all. The first track is a nice catchy opener, 'Don't worry 'bout me' is beautiful AOR, 'King of lies' is horrible, the title track is solid, 'Don't leave your mark' has a strong chorus, 'Blame it on the radio' is a terrible music experience, but a great chorus anyway, and 'Steal you away' is a great AOR closer and album highlight. The rest is awful, but this is, IMO, a lot better than other so called AOR classics.

Folk, this album is faboulous! Pure AOR. The songs "Don't Leave Your Mark On Me", "Blame It on the Radio" (a great ballad) and "Two Hearts" are great!!! Congratulations Mr. Parr.

From: HaremScarem Date: April 24, 2006 at 13:29
"Don't Leave Your Mark On Me": TEMAZO!!! Un buen disco de AOR, también por "Two Hearts" y "Blame it on the radio", coincido plenamente con thiago.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 22, 2008 at 0:30
Oh my God!!!...this release from Mr Parr was FANTASTIC!!!.Pure Aor supreme in here!!!."Don't Worry About Me","Two Hearts","Scratch","Blame It On The Radio" & the one that gives the album a title "Running The Endless Mile" (4 me the best!)are witness of what i want 2 say...If you can grab this album don't think it twice!!!...you'll get hook on!!!.90/100

From: edwithmj Date: July 14, 2009 at 22:17
Not a bad disc at all. This contains some nice little tunes like Two Hearts, Don't Worry 'Bout Me, Runnin' The Endless Mile, Blame It On The Radio and Steal You Away. It's a pity the song The Minute I Saw You from Three Men And a Baby isn't included but I ripped it from the DVD of the film. Great song. If anyone wants it I can email it to you. Just message me on the forum.

excellent release by JOHN PARR back in 86 and this surely captures the spirit of the 80s !many good songs and hooks ,alittle lite of course but you can t have it all !"don t worry about me","running the endless mile","blame it on the radio" and "steal you away " my favs!good stuff!

From: nimzo Date: November 20, 2017 at 1:43
Very good AOR, hi-tech release. I like the voice of Parr and the hi-tech touch with excellent sax in some tracks. The best songs here are "Two Hearts", "Don't worry bout me" one of the best, "Running the endless mile", the awesome "Don't Leave Your Mark On Me" with a killer chorus, and "Blame It on the Radio". 88/100
