Blondie ‎– Autoamerican. Format: CD, Album, Reissue, Remastered. Country: UK & Europe. Catalog number as '72435-33595-2-2' on the spine, on the disc, and on the lower corner of the backsleeve but as '7243 5 33595 2 2' on the upper corner of the back sleeve.

Autoamerican is the fifth studio album by the American rock band Blondie. It was released in November 1980 and reached No. 3 in the UK charts, No. 7 in the US, and No. 8 in Australia. The album was a radical departure for the band, with opening track "Europa" setting the pace. The track is a dramatic instrumental overture featuring orchestral arrangements and ending with vocalist Debbie Harry declaiming a passage about automobile culture over an electronic soundtrack

But then, it's hard to imagine what that third single could have been on an album that leads off with a pretentious string-filled instrumental ("Europa"), and also finds Harry crooning ersatz '20s pop on "Here's Looking at You" and tackling Broadway show music in a cover of "Follow Me" from Camelot. Though more characteristic, the rest of the tracks are weak compositions indifferently executed. Thus Autoamerican was memorable only for its hits, which would be better heard when placed on a hits compilation.

Blondie's fifth album, Autoamerican, marked a major change in musical direction. It may not have continued the ongoing success of the band's first four albums, but it was still fairly decent by anybody's standards. After Eat to the beat, Blondie could have gone several ways, but not in the way that any die-hard fan of the band or indeed anyone who listened to the major radio stations would have thought.

Autoamerican" is the crème de la crème of Blondie albums. Autoamerican" is in a league of its own, and I find challenging to describe the different sounds, but I'll do my best. First off, guitarist Chris Stein decided he wanted an orchestra on many of the tracks. Which is evident on the instrumental track, "Europa". This is the perfect way to open the album because it gives the rest of the songs an sound  . I actually would have been happy to get the "Best Of Blondie" album instead which has the 2 outstanding tracks from this album on it except that inexplicably the album version of "Rapture" is not on that album! As a guitarist, what made "Rapture" so great for me was Stein's playing on the solo which you only get in full in the album version.
