Given the mad vogue in the 2000s for the quirky pop of the 1980s, it was only a matter of time until the Cars--one of the '80s most memorable and distinctive bands-- reunited. Yet the New Cars comprises only two of the band's original members, with the most glaring omission being singer and chief songwriter Rik Ocasek. Even stranger than the original frontman's absence is that fact that eccentric popster and longtime cult favorite Todd Rundgren has stepped into Ocasek's shoes.
The New Cars' debut, IT'S ALIVE, revisits 13 of the Cars' classic tracks, including most of their biggest hits: "You Might Think," "Shake It Up," "Let's Go," and "Just What I Needed" among them. Rundgren does a fine job on the vintage material, channeling Ocasek just enough to make the material fly while still being distinctive. Of particular note here are the three new songs written by Rundgren and the band ("Not Tonight" is a highlight), which fit nicely with the more familiar tunes. Overall, this is an intriguing trip down memory lane, and should prove lots of fun for those who missed the Cars the first time around.
