Lollapalooza: The Cars still got it
I really liked The Cars' latest album, "Move Like This," which sounds so much like vintage stuff from the band.
So I headed over to see them Sunday afternoon. I was not disappointed.
They played a ton of old hits, such as "Just What I Needed," "My Best Friend's Girl" and "Shake It Up." They also hit on a lot of the new material and played just about every song from "Move Like This."
I was impressed that Ric Ocasek and Co. sounded just like they always have, even without the late Benjamin Orr (who sang songs such as "Just What I Needed"). That may actually be my only complaint, that they sounded too perfect. But it's not much of a complaint at all.
