Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
American art-rock was often stilted and lacking in humor until the New Wave arrived. Liberated by the influence of the Velvet Underground, Roxy Music and punk-era fellow travelers like Blondie and Suicide, the Cars methodically linked hookiness (enough to produce three hit singles and several other FM favorites from this debut album) and at least one raised eyebrow. The result still plays as a rock & roll classic. And if charm wasn't their aim, the fact is, it's undeniable. --Rickey Wright

"the cars released this great record back in 1978.shortly after it,s release it was all over the airwaves.this album is in my opinion another one of the finest debut albums in rock ever!!there are so many great songs on this album it may well be the cars quintessential album. ric ocasek ;rythm guitarist and chief song writer for the cars was in top form on this album.for me the best cuts are[and there are many!]you,re all i,ve got tonight,good times roll,bye,bye,love,moving in stereo,just what i needed,my best friend,s girl,all mixed up and don,t cha stop.i realize i have just named most of the tunes on this album but i think this album is a must for any cars fan new or old!i also love the cover that chick with the sexy red lips!!this album and their second album candy o from 1979 are two of the best albums the cars ever did!"
Should be called "Greatest Hits"

"Name another album by any band that starts off with 3 classic tracks like "Let The Good Times Roll", "Best Friend's Girl" and "Just What I Needed", and then add songs like "You're All I've Got Tonight", "Bye Bye Love", "Moving In Stereo" and "All Mixed Up" and you have a true classic, not just of new wave, but of popular music in general. Essential to any modern music collection. BTW, "Moving In Stereo" is what's playing on the soundtrack during Phoebe Cates' memorable pool scene in "Fast Times At Ridgemont High"."
