Description: The Cars’ stunning debut may not be the first new wave album, but in many ways it best defines the genre. With its arching classic rock hooks fused with DIY spirit, streamlined 50s influenced song structures paired with tasteful synth flourishes, and smart aesthetic combined with big production, this is a perfect album by most any standard. It was an immediate hit upon release and the influence it cast still reverberates through every Weezer album that hits the racks. With a directness that still sounds as fresh (though probably less peculiar) as it did in 1978 and a masterful sequencing and pacing, the overall listening experience makes this album sound more like a greatest hits LP than a debut, and —with about six of its nine tracks playing on a radio somewhere right now—it practically is. Also comes housed in one of the greatest album covers of all time. Let the good times roll!
