It's Alive! by The New Cars
Released: Jun 2006
Label: Eleven Seven Music
Let's imagine who's in the audience of the performance recently caught live for this release: Fans of Todd Rundgren, the semi-esteemed pop auteur who replaced original singer/mastermind Ric Ocasek? Hardcore Cars fans (known affectionately as "the Car-tel") fiending for their favorites? Total dupes? With only two original members, these Cars are "New" indeed, though Rundgren's deadpan, spot-on reenactment meshes well with a band that is far tighter than it should be. But why they would record these songs when the originals are classics -- and why anyone would pay for it -- we might never know.
