"This is not a reunion — it's more like a conjunction," Cars frontman Ric Ocasek told Rolling Stone earlier this year. He's not kidding around. Move Like This, his band's first studio album in 24 years, finds the New Wave legends sounding almost exactly as they did in their late Seventies/early Eighties heyday. This isn't to say the album is a retread. Ocasek's distinct voice and knack for hooks is front and center, but the sound of the record is slick and modern. Opening number "Blue Tip" has the rich low end of an LCD Soundsystem dance-rock rave-up, while "Keep On Knocking" and "Sad Song" sound like Ocasek has learned a thing or two from having produced hard rocking albums by Weezer and Guided by Voices. Move Like This will hit stores on May 10th, but you can stream the album in full now.
