Autoamerican came out when I was 12. It was the first serious album I bought. I had three colorful disco lights in my room and this music was the soundtrack to my entrance into teenagedom.

More than that, the album exhibits different genres of muisc... calypso (Tide is High), rap (Rapture), jazz (Faces and Here's Looking at You), new age (Europa, Follow Me), disco (Do the Dark), and country-rock (T-birds). It is a world tour of music genres set into one album.

Still brings back memories of those disco lights...
