Absolutely blindsided by this release.  The first studio album in 24 years....and it is amazing.  Ric Ocasik is back(as are all the rest except Benji Orr R.I.P).  I think it is nearly as good as Heartbeat City.  Their trademark sound hasn't changed a bit.    I didn't know anything about this until yesterday(and I'm a huge fan) and its been out for three weeks.

Any fans of the Cars, this is a must buy.  It's fantastic.

Caught them on Fallon last week. Great tune. Sounds like the last 25 years never happened in Cars' world - and that's a good thing. I want the Cars to be the Cars. I don't think Ocasik's voice has changed at all. Looking forward to listening to the whole album.

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:


* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

I've been listening to this a lot the last week and I really like it.  It's good stuff.

Yes, Move Like This is great. I took my (almost) 16 year old son to see them in Philly last month and now he is a Cars fan. He's even worked out some of their songs on his guitar. BTW - Loved the show. They are not the most 'entertaining' band in the world, but the music was excellent. They were very tight and very, very loud (or I'm just getting old :D ).
