Website: Amazon
Description: 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.

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"Boston’s Cars became an instant smash with their chrome-plated debut. Ric Ocasek’s songs offered crisp, catchy snapshots of alienation and romantic distress, all given a smart New Wave sheen by the band’s edgy beats and electronic keyboards. Standout track: “My Best Friend’s Girl”"
