Ric Ocasek's Beatitude is an intriguing exercise in developing the artier side of the Cars, the one that owed a great deal to Roxy Music and synthesized Bowie. While the album lacks pop songs as strong as Ocasek's work for the Cars, it showcases an eerie side that is occasionally as compelling as his more accessible works. Track Listing.
