After all the reviews I've read about this album, I was expecting it to be a total downer. Suprisingly, it isn't, at least to me. There isn't one song on Door To Door that I dislike, and a few of them I really find to be among the band's best. Overall though, it's still the Cars' weakest album. Most of the magic that had surrounded Heartbeat City and their great 1985 single 'Tonight She Comes' (my favorite Cars song) had worn away by 1987. Most of the band members seemed more interested in their solo albums working on Door To Door. It's no wonder they split up after this album. At least it starts out great, with 'Leave or Stay', packed with more of that familiar Ric Ocasek humor and a nice, melodic chorus. After that comes the sole 'hit' on Door To Door, 'You Are The Girl'. A charming song with some of the band's best harmonies, and pretty, trademark keyboard-driven melody. There's still magic here at least. This was the first Door To Door song I'd ever heard, as it was also on The Cars Complete Greatest Hits collection. 'Double Trouble' is good, but not great, though it has a good chorus and driving guitars. 'Fine Line' is one of my favorite Cars songs. Moody, atmospheric, and filled with great lyrics, this has, like 'You Are The Girl', a classic Cars feel. One reviewer dubbed 'Fine Line' as a limp 'Drive' remake, though it's always reminded me more of 'A Dream Away' from the Shake It Up album or 'You Wear Those Eyes' from Panorama. Possible the best song on Door To Door. Then there's 'Everything You Say' which is one of a few of the songs on this album that has a different feel than your average Cars song. It's almost country or rockabilly-ish. I still like it though. Another great chorus. 'Ta Ta Wayo Wayo' is weird and different, but still quite good. Reminds me of Sandinista!-era Clash, sort of.Read more ›

the cars' album "door to door" was released in the latter half on 1987. it's true that most people say this album was a disaster and really killed the group, but i say don't judge so quickly. it's apparent that this album is so very little like "heartbeat city" but that's the beauty of it! "door to door" has more of a rock and roll feel to it as opposed to "heartbeat city" (although "h.c." is still a great album.). people really underappreciated this album, featuring the extremely catchy "you are the girl" which is toward the beginning of the album. this is such a happy song you gotta love it. after that is the flipside of the coin with "double trouble" probably my favorite cut on the album. this song is great hard rock. although it's very simple and i was waiting for more guitar work from elliot, this song will keep your ears attentive for the whole song. next is one of their old songs from '77 that was released finally on "door" called "ta ta wayo wayo". this song is also very addictive as ric croons out another tune and david robinson controls the drums. "coming up you" displays some great vocals and synths and should be one to check out. the song "fine line" is another catchy tune that will keep you rocking. and finally, the brilliant "strap me in" displayed that the cars can still rock, with that catchy elliot easton guitar lick. this album should have gotten more attention. this album shouldnt have killed the cars career like it appeared that it did. although not on the levels of "panorama", "the cars", and "candy-o", this album deserved to go multiplatinum. the reason why this album did so poorly is because they had gone completely pop with "heartbeat city" and to come out with this was like night and day.Read more ›

If this album had been released 1 year after 'Heartbeat City', rather than 3 years, I reckon it would have STORMED the charts- it may not be as adventurous or edgy as their 70s work, but so many people seem to have overlooked the fact that this is REALLY solid, catchy, satisfying, eclectic, hugely enjoyable pop/rock. 80s fans should go nuts for this if they give it a try- it's got everything from pop/rock songs absolutely PILED high with synths AND guitars to slow, simple, moody ballads to big growling rockers to accostic driven pop songs to piano boogie to explosive speed metal, all armed with strong hooks and polished with just-right production. Far from being messy or incoherent, I think this is one of The Cars' most consistent albums in terms of quality (I'm yet to hear 'Panorama'). Give it a go- you may just find 'Door to Door', as I did, becoming a highly valued part of your music collection!

This cd is on par with about any of The Cars' albums, despite what some reviews will have you think. It does explore a harder rock, somewhat more 'guitar-oriented' sound than their other albums, but not to any negative end. I think that The Cars wanted to do something a little different; after doing Heartbeat City, which was the ultimate synth-oriented album, they wanted a change of direction. And it works, pretty much--still sounding like The Cars but harder-edged. I think the whole album is good, with the exception of 'Fine Line' which is slow and boring and sounds like a B-side you'd never want to hear again. I'd say if you own a good Cars greatest hits collection (there's several), Heartbeat City, this album, and their 2011 comeback cd (Move Like This) you have a pretty good representation of their best work as a whole.
