5.0 out of 5 stars Platinum In 6 Weeks Sept. 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really solid album from first to last. Classic June 6 2002
By Bruno
Format:Audio CD
Despite those who think they're too "hip" to like the Knack, this group can play. Forget the reviewers claiming they're a bunch of no-talents. They obviously don't play an instrument or appreciate how much talent it takes to make music like this. The guitar solo on My Sharona alone is something few guitarists will ever match. This is great power pop that is easy to listen to yet rocks. It's fun music with some punch. It was fashionable to hate the Knack within a couple years of their debut, but you don't sell 6 million copies if you stink. I also enjoy more "cerebral" and critically acclaimed artists like Elvis Costello, Graham Parker, and XTC, so please, spare us the "they have no talent" stuff. They blow Elvis Costello away live. This was a concept album based on the viewpoint of a 16 year old boy and played in the style now referred to as "power pop" but which is really just early Beatles style rock and roll. So, of course the songs sound the same They're supposed to!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Knack's Debut Is A Classic Pop/New Wave! May 26 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Knack came out of nowhere in 1979 and scored big with their smash "My Sharona". They combined pop and new wave together and the combination was instant success. Their debut entitled simply "Get The Knack" in my opinion is their best lp. Songs such as "My Sharona", "Your Number Or Your Name", and "Good Girls Don't" are Knack classics. This newly remastered cd includes five bonus tracks. The demo versions of various songs could have been left off this cd because the sound quality sounds as if it were recorded with a hand held tape recorder. The sound quality of the rest of the disc is excellent though. The bonus cut "I Knew The Bride (When She Used To Rock And Roll" is typical Knack. The late 70's spawned a number of pop/new wave groups such as The Cars, The Romantics, The Pretenders, The Police etc. As disco was dying this new sound in music was emerging. Unfortunately for The Knack, they never really did make it as big as some of the other pop/wave groups at that time. This is a must have for pop/new wave lovers as it stands on it's own as a classic! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Knack-Attack May 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
Wow.....The album that pretty much killed Disco. GET THE KNACK is an amazing album even without one of the Top 125 songs of all-time, MY SHARONA. This album speaks to teenage boy angst as much as any LP ever recorded. A traditional 4 piece unit with a sound that is pure club/bar band. No crazy studio effects here...only straight forward Rock n' Roll. The Knack's sound got compared to the Beatles largely due to the following three Pop Gems: "YOUR NUMBER OR YOUR NAME", "OH TARA", and "WHAT THE LITTLE GIRLS DO", all Beatlesque tunes driven by the rhythm section. The bass lines are great, the drumming right on, and the harmonies very familiar. But, then comes five more pop/rock gems that can only be called "Knackesque" all characterized by a driving beat, great drum and bass work, and Doug Fieger's perfect vocal delivery: "MY SHARONA" Classic! a driving, addictive beat that does not allow you to sit still, "GOOD GIRLS DON'T" perfect pop/rock. Naughty stuff by 1979 standards. Check out the lyrics on this one. "FRUSTRATED" MY SHARONA Junior, but, does not really take much of a back seat. The Title itself tells you what the song is about. "SELFISH (SHE'S SO)" one of the best songs about a stuck-up chick you'll ever hear. Love the teasingly long intro. "SIAMESE TWINS (THE MONKEY AND ME)" deviates from the LP's "guy wants chick, needs sex theme" by discussing...what else....drugs. Listen to the drums on this one! Fieger shows his sensitive side with "MAYBE TONIGHT" A cute, underrated gem. I always viewed "LET ME OUT" "LUCINDA" and "HEARTBEAT" as being listenable filler. So...what you've got is a vintage album of 12 songs that do not [stink]. That is about 12 more than anything you'll pick up today.
