Coming off the 1984 mega-hit HEARTBEAT CITY, many expected that the Cars' follow-up would be another top ten hit that spawned several hit singles. While it did contain one official hit single ("You Are the Girl") and was certified gold, 1987's DOOR TO DOOR only managed to reach #26 on the album charts. But more significantly, it led to the band's break-up one year later. It may not the band's most inspired or consistent album, but it does contain several strong tracks that have been forgotten over time.
Perhaps as a sign that the band was trying to get back to basics, a pair of tracks that originally appeared on a 1977 demo for their first album were re-recorded for DOOR TO DOOR--"Leave Or Stay" and "Ta Ta Wayo Wayo." Also included was one of the band's hardest rocking compositions, the stomping title track, as well as the sullen "Strap Me In" and the upbeat pop of "You Are the Girl." Rumors of turmoil within the band swirled before the release of DOOR TO DOOR, and after completing a U.S. tour, Ric Ocasek told his bandmembers in early '88 that he was leaving the group, effectively ending one of the most popular bands of the '80s.
