iTunes Review

The Cars were among the most successful new-wave rock bands of the late ‘70s and ‘80s. Leader Ric Ocasek had always maintained the band would never reunite and after the death of bassist-vocalist Benjamin Orr, it sounded like a safe bet. But in the fall of 2009, Ocasek realized the best musicians to work on his latest set of songs would be his former bandmates. With Jacknife Lee (U2, REM, Weezer) co-producing, the Cars jump into the 21st century with an album that sounds like they’d never stopped. The first couple of previews from the album, “Sad Song” and “Blue Tip” reminded listeners of the old band, while tracks like “Keep On Knocking” and “Free” have the same drive and aggression of the band’s first few albums. “Soon” is a haunting ballad that would have been a natural for Orr. Rather than find a replacement for him, keyboardist Greg Hawkes handled the bass parts. The Cars were always ahead of their time: Elliot Easton’s guitar chords and Hawkes’ dreamy synths sound completely contemporary. This is one reunion that doesn’t sound like a reunion, but the next logical step.

Customer Reviews

Something's missing...

Hey guys, Elliot Easton is at the door. Let him in, and let him play.


The Cars manufactured sleek, gleaming new-wave jingles, beginning in 1978 with their still-spiffy debut album. Turn on a Cars song, and instantly the world becomes a sea of androgynous boys and girls dressed in vinyl, wearing sunglasses and cruising for anonymous hook-ups. After nearly three decades apart, the surviving members – Ric Ocasek, Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes and David Robinson – have reunited for “Move Like This” (Hear Music), their seventh studio album (cofounding bassist Ben Orr died in 2000). Fans who loved the old Cars will find little has changed with this awesome comeback album and an all around TOTALLY AWESOME time!

The Cars Still Rev and Rock!!

Timeless! The boys, even without Benjamin Orr (R.I.P.), sound as good as ever! I was in the 8th grade when their self-titled debut album dropped and it, along with Candy-O, Panorama, Shake It Up and Heartbeat City got me through the junior high and high school years. And, Door to Door offered a familiar sound my junior year of undergrad and helped me get to graduation.

Fast forward 24 years and Move Like This sounds like the band pressed the rewind button or entered a time machine and dialed it back to 1984. As unique as this album and The Cars' sound (always) is, it feels and fits like an old pair of driving gloves! And it takes my mind back to the good old days!

Is it me, or does Sad Song sound like it could've been on their debut album - 33 years ago?! And "Soon" is a ballad that would've fit right in on Heartbeat City; just imagine if Ben Orr sang lead on this song?

This album is definitely worth the investment! Every song is great, just waiting for old fans, new fans...all fans to listen to and enjoy!

Blondie may have had a string of number one hits and Talking Heads may have won the hearts of the critics, but the Cars were the most successful American new wave band to emerge in the late '70s. With their sleek, mechanical pop/rock, the band racked up a string of platinum albums and Top 40 singles that made them one of the most popular American rock & roll bands of the late '70s and early '80s. While they were more commercially oriented than their New York peers, the Cars were nevertheless inspired...
