Vastly underrated debut solo album of Cars prime mover, Rick Ocasek. Easily his best solo album, and other than the Cars 1st album Beatitude is as good as any Cars album - better than most. Yes, you can identify immediately that the year was 1982 from the record production. But the songwriting is sharp, concise, and moving in and out of robotic darkness. Electronic mantras. Making Beatitude seemed to reinvigorate Ocasek after the lackluster Cars album, Panorama. And he continued mining his darker inner robot with the Cars afterward. Jimmy Jimmy and Connect Up to Me really shine here and are among Ocasek's best songs. Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound, these recordings are 1st rate.
