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.
