Blondie’s fifth album, Autoamerican, was a bold and ambitious departure from their previous work. Released in 1980, the album incorporated elements of jazz, blues, disco, and the avant-garde, creating a sound that was both eclectic and futuristic.

The album opens with the foreboding orchestral instrumental “Europa,” which sets the stage for the eclectic mix of genres to come. Other highlights include the funky “Rapture,” the reggae-tinged “The Tide Is High,” and the jazz-inflected “Sunday Girl.” Blondie also experimented with new sounds on tracks like the disco-inspired “Call Me” and the avant-garde “Walk Like Me.”

While Autoamerican was not as commercially successful as Blondie’s previous albums, it has since been recognized as a groundbreaking and influential work. The album was praised by critics for its eclecticism and its experimental spirit, and it helped to pave the way for other artists to blend different genres in their music.

Today, Autoamerican is considered to be one of Blondie’s best albums, and it is still enjoyed by fans around the world. The album is a testament to Blondie’s creativity and their willingness to experiment with different sounds. It is also a reminder of why Blondie is considered to be one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time.
