A perfect greatest hits album. 23 Mar. 2005
By M J Heilbron Jr. - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a perfect greatest hits album because:

a) it provides all the important songs of the artist's career...

b) it provides remastered versions of said songs

c) it is sequenced as if it should be played in its' entirety...the song order matters

d) it demonstrates artistic growth, increasing your appreciation for the artist

e) it provides context of that artist within their genre and other genres

and f) at least three times you will say, out loud, "that was awesome", when listening to it.

The dexterous wordplay, the thundering beats, the hysterical many artists, from the rap world to the rock (could Linkin Park even exist without, say, "Rock Box" or "Walk This Way"?) owe their careers to these three musicians.

There is nobody, nor will there ever be anybody, like Run D.M.C. They were the best at what they do, and this disc is proof.

How Hip-Hop is supposed to be 7 Nov. 2002
By AW177 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
With the tragic loss of Jam Master Jay and w/ the rest of the group disbanding, it seems a part of hip-hop has died as well. The part of what hip-hop is supposed to be, non-violent raps, positive messages (Down w/ the King), etc. seems to have died as well. Run-DMC never needed what today's artists have, huge entourages, plenty of ice, cars, girls, etc. and the use of the "n" word over and over again. If only today's artists can learn something from Run-DMC instead of just giving them props, things may be different today and Jay may still live. God Bless Jam Master Jay and the rest of Run-DMC. RIP Jay, you will be missed.

Who's house? Runs house! 17 Aug. 2004
By Alan Pounds - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Where do you begin with a Group like Run-DMC. A group that broke down all the barriers from hard rock to rap, although melodic and accessible enough to break into popular music. They kick it out with drum machines, scratching and also mixing in guitars and keyboards. They got some amazing rhymes and lyrics to match. Run-DMC are pioneers, like The Beatles. They've paved the way for hip-hoppers since their debut in 1984.

In closing, This CD is a great introduction to Run-DMC. It's the one I started with, and I have purchased the first four albums because I thought it was so great. If you are looking for old school hip-hop, Run-DMC is the way to go. It doesn't get much older or cooler than this.

October 30, 2002: The Day Hip Hop Died 29 July 2004
By hiphopforlife - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I was destroyed when I found out that Jam Master Jay had been murdered; not only as a die-hard lover of hip hop, but as a black man and as a human being. I still can't imagine who want to kill the peace-loving family man who helped usher and cultivate the greatest musc in the world? That shows that world that we live in today. Enough of the doom and gloom; the life's work of JMJ and his partners in crime Run D.M.C are among the most important in music history; they guided hip hop from something that New York kids did in the streets the biggest cultural revolution since the creation of rock and roll. Speaking

of rock, rapping over heavy metal riffs? Gee, THAT will never catch on! That concept also furthered rock bands to incorporate rap into their miscial compisition, spawinig bands like Faith No More, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and Korn among others. Though their star power diminshed through the '90's, their influence was overwhelming, such as groups like De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Salt N Pepa, Naughty By Nature and The Alkaholiks. This album is merely a crash course in their illustrious career, it's still worth getting for the rare "Christmas In Holliis track recorded for a beneft charity album(where's "Here We Go?). I still say my condolences to the family friends and fans of Jason Mizell, aka Jam Master Jay; rest in peace. Stop the violence.

Epic 31 Oct. 2002
By tthecat - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Hard to say enough good things about the band. Yes, they brought rap into the mainstream, along with The Beastie Boys. Yes, they helped resurrect Aerosmith's career. We won't hold it against them that most rap-metal has been horrible, Limp Bizkit included.
But they were so much more than that. They changed how rap music sounded, with their dense tracks giving rise to a new style. Eventually, the clever use of rock samples produced the Bomb Squad, and the whole Def Jam label. Rick Rubin should get up every morning and thank Run-DMC for his fortune.
As for the songs, this is a much better collection than the previous hits CD. Can You Rock It Like This is a wonderful addition. I would have added You're Blind, Pause and I'm Not Going Out Like That, which show the band's political side. Their message of respect and empowerment should not be overlooked.
But, you can't beat how the CD starts. King of Rock/It's Tricky/Beats To The Rhyme/Can You Rock It Like This.
Get this as an introduction, then go get King of Rock, Tougher Than Leather, and Raising Hell. All 3 are essential.
Jam-Master Jay, RIP.
