Editorial Reviews

2011 release from the Ric Ocasek and Co., their first album in 24 years. Move Like This recalls the Aft-Rock minimalistic sound The Cars are so well known for, yet at the same time, maintains significant relevance to the music of today. Will appeal to all long-standing Cars fans and open the door to a whole new generation of listeners. The album was produced by The Cars and Jacknife Lee [U2, REM]. Features the singles 'Blue Tip' and 'Sad Song'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cars!! May 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
"Move Like This" is the Cars first album since 1987, and while it's been much too long since their last release, it was worth the wait! Aside from bassist Benjamin Orr, who passed away in 2000, all of the original members are back and they sound like they haven't missed a beat. The album's first track, "Blue Tip," is vintage Cars with Atari-era keyboards, a super catchy chorus laced with perky beats, and Ric Ocasek's trademark vocals. "Too Late" is a little more downbeat, a synth-driven tune with an electro pop foundation. Elliott Easton's guitar makes its presence known on "Keep On Knocking" and he turns in a very hip psychedelic solo. "Soon" is a ballad in the tradition of Drive, the hit that Orr sang back in 1984. "Sad Song" features a clever palm-muted guitar and on-the-upbeat handclaps. "Hits Me" and "Free" are a total recall of the new wave/pop sound the CARS had in the 1980's and captures their precise swagger perfectly. "Keep On Rocking" is more vintage Cars and has an incredible groove. While the band isn't breaking any new musical ground with their latest release, this is a finely produced album that fans of their earlier work will love, and is highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Climb aboard this DeLorean time machine... May 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Goose bumps all over as I take a magical ride back in time to my youth. There is no substitute for the original Cars. This album is "new-vintage", and aged to perfection! A musical treat for the ears and a warm memory morsel for the heart. Do you ever wish you could do it all over again?! Well, this album lets us all "Take Another Look"! Thanks for the fond trip back to the future! A MUST addition for your Cars collection.

05/19/2011 Update: "Move Like This" debuts at NUMBER 2 on the Billboard Rock Album Charts! Congratulations to the band and thanks to all the loyal fans that made this release a success! This century wants more Cars music! This century NEEDS more Cars music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Head out on the highway...looking for The Cars! May 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Just want to put my two cents worth in and tell the public that The Cars new album is really worth the cost! I bought mine at Best Buy today at $9.99 plus tax and it also included three bonus demo songs called One By One, Hits Me and Rocket USA. Also included are two music videos and they are Sad Song and Blue Tip. There is also a plastic Commemorative Pass telling the dates they play for the 2011 year and their web site! So all in all, a pretty good deal! The songs are a continuation of Heartbeat City and a little of The Cars first album thrown in for good measure! Thanks for your reading time...I'm not steering you wrong! (Get it!)...lol

4.0 out of 5 stars All Dark Quirkiness, No Detached Swagger May 10, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent album, with only a few minor weak spots in my view (some insufferable lyrics mar "Soon", for instance). Ben Orr's absence means the album lacks his detached swagger, and as a result every song is dominated by Ocasek's trademark dark quirkiness. You can actually identify the songs that Orr should be singing. But it's a completely solid effort with a few fantastic tracks, and best of all: real drums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cars!! July 10, 2011
By Tim Lee
Format:Audio CD
I wasn't sure what to think when I heard about a new Cars effort after 24 years. After the first listen, I liked it. After the second, even better. As the third listen morphed immediately into the fourth, I was sold! I've worn this CD out already. Thanks so much, Ric and the gang, but please don't wait another 24 years until the next release. I don't know if my senior living facility would look kindly on the volume level at which I would be playing it.

Get your hands on The Cars' new album and take it out for a spin. Whether an old fan or new, you won't be disappointed. Let it be said that while you'll soon be basking in that electrified glow that only The Cars can generate and sustain, the songs here don't exactly copy their old songs, but rather simply veer into familiar styles and territory covered in them; each one is distinctively new and yet uniquely and undeniably The Cars.
The record starts off with a rocker called Blue Tip, the title referring to the tip of a billiards cue. Here we are treated to a tasty barrage of claps, warbling synth, catchy vocals, and a bona fide techno vibe. It's really quite good. Then comes a little bit down-tempo number called Too Late that has classic Cars rhythms and nice harmonies. Keep On Knocking is a surprise: a heavy-metal guitar slashes out a chugging rhythm as Ocasek sings in his jumpiest, quirkiest style, and Easton's guitar comes into a keyboard-like solo like old times about 2/3 through. Soon is a soft love song done in a style reminiscent of the late Ben Orr, and the vocals and arrangement even call up the ghost of Roy Orbison. The gentle, chiming melody builds to a nice crescendo and then fades smoothly. Sad Song is an awesome display of mastery: the claps, the humming, throbbing bass like on Candy-O, the infectious foot-tapping rhythms, the catchy vocals, the flashes of sinister synth Hawkes lays down about 1/2 way in, all make this perhaps the biggest surprise and the song most likely to grab you tightly at first listen. Next comes Free, and just as it says, "You could go back in time," it features some Bye, Bye, Love and You're All I've Got Tonight-style choppy rhythms and syncopations.

I would love to see a tour too! Hopefully they are just playing it by ear and seeing how the album is accepted first before deciding on a full tour or not. If I recall, they broke up during their tour of Door to Door (or at least shortly afterwards), so that may still be on their minds. Who... Read More
