The Cops are my favorite of the bands, but is Outlandos better than The Cars' debut?

What if I have never had the slightest interest in any of these bands before? Is it worth it still?

Well you could at least relisten to one of them, and see where you find yourself liking/disliking and go from there

I've got Blondie.

Blondie is a VERY close second for me.

"Parallel Lines" and The Cars debut are perfect albums start to finish.
