Quoting Benjamin

Door to Door just was in a separate area. It wasn’t what the entire band envisioned it to be. It wasn’t a group effort. It turned out that way, and I felt that was wrong. Door to Door was done at Electric Lady in New York. It was already written in stone when I got there. And that’s not a way to do an album.” —  from “The Cars: Shake It Up, Drive it Out,” by Steve Roeser, Goldmine, August 1, 1997
