An instant smash about youthful lust. Catchy grooves mixed with attitude. Tunes reminiscent of early Beatles, Elvis Costello... and for those that can't remember that far back, check out the "One-Ders" from Tom Hanks' movie "That Thing You Do". Early on, The Knack couldn't get a break and they remained unsigned. Yet, they had a massive underground following... and you'll read in the liner notes... during a 3 week span (Oct/Nov 1978) they were joined by Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Stephen Stills, Eddie Money at various shows ON STAGE. Doug Fieger on vocals and guitar... the Knack was his brainstorm. He assembled a great band - and these guys can play. Bruce Gary on drums is simply amazing. Berton Averre blisters on some of the guitar solos. Sure, "My Sharona" was the #1 song in America for 5 weeks in 1979, but it heavily overshadowed the rest of the album. "Your Number Or Your Name", "Oh Tara", "(She's So) Selfish", "Good Girls Don't", "Frustrated" were all wonderfully crafted radio hits to come. If you grew up listening to music in the 1970's and 80's... you KNOW this album. Having found it on CD again... it's a short drive down memory lane. It's 24-Bit digital remastering is crisp. Liner notes are informative of the band's rise to quick fame. Bonus tracks are decent for the 1st or 2nd listen, but considered throw aways after that. This is a great album.
