Perfection. Pop-rock’s standard for what a perfect album should strive to be. Many artists tried to follow this blueprint, some succeeding on their own right, but this LP will always be the original. All nine tracks are bonafide singles, making my “top two” selections nearly impossible. The Cars still wrote some fine singles and strong albums through the 80s, but nothing will eclipse this career and genre-defining album.
Favorite Track: Just What I Needed
Second Favorite: Bye Bye Love
