Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 284/500!

Numbered, Limited Edition! Half-speed Mastered From the Original Analog Tapes!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

One of the most successful and enjoyable debuts in history, The Cars’ self-titled album doubles as a greatest-hits collection. That’s because not one song here is unrecognized or unknown. A huge reason why the Boston quintet became America’s most popular new-wave band, The Cars launched eight tracks still regularly heard on radio stations everywhere. Consider the hit list: "You’re All I’ve Got Tonight," "Good Times Roll," "Just What I Needed," "Moving in Stereo," "My Best Friend’s Girl," and "Don’t Cha Stop." If you’re a fan of pop music, this album is a must-have. Just call it the best new-wave rock album ever made.

Led by Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr, the Cars managed to unite then-disparate styles: bubblegum pop melodies, angular art rock, progressive arrangements, and terse minimalism. Orr’s low, understated singing and Ocasek’s cool, detached vocals lend shades of doubt and double meaning to the lyrics, which are further counterbalanced by orchestral keyboard flourishes and electronic beats. The brilliant arrangements also benefit from a laidback cool and understated irony that remain uncommon in the over-the-top world of mainstream music. Obsessed with incorporating the latest technologies and sounds into its palette, the band spiced its tunes with delightfully quirky accents—country-tinged guitar fills, echoing Syndrums, reggae splashes, hard-rock tones and robotic pulses.

The results are the sounds of a creative landmark. At once accessible and eccentric, edgy and catchy, The Cars explode with emotion, energy, and hooks. It’s impossible not to get caught up humming and singing along to every song, an appeal that comes courtesy of Roy Thomas Baker’s stellar production. The legendary producer, best known for his work with Queen, ensured that the record seamlessly packed a smooth midrange, spacious imaging, and call-and-answer choruses in one tight package. Baker’s trademark touches with harmony vocals abound.

And now, The Cars sounds better than it has in any previous incarnation. Half-speed mastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited-edition LP allows the music’s oscillating rhythms, futuristic keyboard passages, panned stereo images, and rippling textures to be experienced like never before. The songs take on a surreal quality, the Cars manipulating the vibrant music at will to mesmerize the listeners’ senses and hold them at bay. Mobile Fidelity’s unparalleled pressing epitomizes the sensation of "moving in stereo"!

The Cars album Candy-O (MFSL 1-324) also available on Limited Edition Mobile Fidelity 180g Vinyl.

"We used to joke that the first album should be called The Cars' Greatest Hits," said lead guitarist Elliot Easton. The Cars' 1978 debut was arty and punchy enough to be part of Boston's New Wave scene and yet so catchy that nearly every track — "My Best Friend's Girl," "Just What I Needed" — landed on the radio." - www.rollingstone.com
