Album Reviews:

Paste (magazine) - "THE ELEKTRA YEARS is a great way to snap up the catalog of one of America's most intelligent and engaging bands in one fell swoop."

Album Notes

Audio Remasterer: Ted Jensen.

The Cars' studio albums have been boxed before -- most of them showed up on 2009's Original Album Series, while in 2014 there was a cheap and basic set called Studio Album Collection, 1978-1987 -- but the 2016 set The Elektra Years 1978-1987 is handsomely produced and newly remastered, two features absent on the previous sets. Ric Ocasek handled the digital remaster, while David Robinson is the art director on the set, overseeing the replicas of the original albums and coming up with the spiffy retro artwork. Sadly, "Tonight She Comes" -- a hit single featured on 1985's Greatest Hits and never part of an actual album -- wasn't added as a bonus track to either Heartbeat City or Door to Door, but that's the only flaw on this otherwise nicely assembled, affordable set. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
