The Cars Return to Form on Electrifying New Album 'Move Like This'

This week, Rolling Stone's Jody Rosen praises Move Like This, the first album by the Cars in 24 years, which he says "sounds so much like a Record by the Cars that you find yourself laughing out loud." Jon Dolan also gives the thumbs up to the Saturday Night Live comedy crew Lonely Island, who "show no sign of running out of impossibly brilliant half-jokes" on their second album Turtleneck & Chain. Also, Jonah Weiner digs Gang Gang Dance's strange, ecstastic record Eye Contact and Rosen pans songwriter Christina Perri's plodding, insipid new disc Lovestrong.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
