Default Rick Ocasek - Troubleizing

I figured I'd post this as a lot of younger/newer fans might not be aware of Billy Corgan's work on what is considered Ocasek's (The Cars) best solo album. Billy sings on a few songs, and his fingerprints are obviously all over the distortion guitar sounds (around the same time he was doing Ransom soundtrack). Auf der Maur actually sings on some tracks too. Check out the amazon sound samples for a good taste:

Billy's voice sounds amazing on Crashland Consequence. It has that classic Corgan sad sound found all over MCIS.

Asia Minor sounds like a Sadlands demo with the word association-style lyrics Boz was doing around that time.

Nice refresher. Fantastic album.

Crashland Consequence always stood out, as I recall.
