Door to Door

Genre: Rock, Pop, New Wave
Notes: Excellent copy. Gatefold cover with very subtle creases and ringwear. Looks to be played very few times and sounds superb.
If you like: The Cars, Door To Door is an underrated and final return to their roots and a step away from the studio trickery of Heartbeat City...kind of the perfect swansong, it is well-deserving of a spot in your collection.
About: With their sleek, mechanical sound inspired by proto-punk, garage rock, and bubblegum pop, Boston-based quintet the Cars racked up a string of platinum albums and Top 40 singles, becoming the most successful American new wave band of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. They had enough rock & roll attitude to cross over to album rock radio, while still being heavily influenced by the art rock of artists like Suicide, The Velvet Underground, and Roxy Music. Their first two albums (1978’s The Cars and 1979’s Candy-O) were new wave classics; their fifth album, 1984’s Heartbeat City, was a modern pop masterpiece fueled by a run of videos that became MTV staples. The Cars broke up in 1988, but their music’s popularity and influence never faded. *Stephen Thomas Erlewine
