Imo it doesn't suck, but I don't love it.

I was surprised to hear this on the radio yesterday. It does not suck.

Absolute classic. If you think this song sucks, you're not my kind of people. This song proves that you can make a great ROCK song with just synthesizers.

Agree with @spoon81 & @nothingfails, it is NewWave - either you like it or not but Cars rather much epitomizes the genre. Rock on!

I just recently picked up the 2 Tubeway Army albums and I now need to get The Pleasure Principle, Telekon, and Living Ornaments '81.

I will pass on the NIN-ish stuff.

You'll be doing yourself a disservice. The new album, Splinter, is amazing.

Check this in-house performance at KCRW to get a taste: http://www.kcrw.com/music/programs/m...an/hd-showcase

Have to agree. The new album isn't bad, but it's definitely in that path. I'm not a NIN fan, so that does have something to do with it.
