  • Careful, the sixth studio album by The Motels, is an important milestone in the band’s musical journey. This album marked a transition from the punk-infused post-punk style of their earlier albums to a more mature, sophisticated sound.

    The Motels had already established themselves as a respected and beloved band in the post-punk genre with their previous five albums, and Careful was the culmination of their evolution. The album featured catchy, memorable songs with a polished sound, courtesy of the production by John Carter. The upbeat melodies, infectious hooks, and thoughtful lyrics gave the album a unique appeal that was both accessible and engaging.

    The standout tracks on Careful are “Suddenly Last Summer” and “Mission of Mercy”. The former is an anthemic track that is sure to get any crowd singing along, while the latter is a heartfelt ballad with a soulful vocal performance. Other highlights on the album include the bouncy “Total Control” and the moody “No Doubt”.

    The Motels have crafted a timeless album with Careful. Its blend of post-punk and pop elements is sure to please fans of both genres.
