Product Description

Amazon.ca

Their debut album went gold in record time and the initial hype from the Beatles' own label (Capitol) was that this was the group destined to be the next big thing--which they were for this one album. "My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't" were the big hits. But the hype and their overnight success set off a "Nuke the Knack" backlash that saw their subsequent records fail miserably. Get the Knack, however, is great power pop. "Your Number or Your Name," "Lucinda," "Oh Tara" and "That's What the Little Girls Do" are all top notch pieces of songcraft, brought to their fullest potential by the flawless production by Mike "Commander" Chapman. --Rob O'Connor

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT SQUEEZER EVER July 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
This POWER POP BAND rocketed quickly after release of this album.That means social environment thirsted for this kind of 60's RIVERPOOL SOUND REVIVAL.This band is one of the followers of THE BEATLES,such as CHEAP TRICK,BIG STAR,etc.... In this album,THE KNACK members did not parodied themselves as a BEATLES CLONE,but they could update their style in the late seventies.
All in all,this album maybe a miracle hit,but their catchyness still lingers on in the 21st century.Let's kick the KNACK running.

4.0 out of 5 stars One singular sensation. Jan. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
What a pop time capsule THIS is! Crisply performed, energetic and slightly naughty, The Knack's debut took the world by storm. This was quickly followed by a backlash heretofore unseen in pop music...a widespread resentment of the band only because we liked them too much. They didn't molest any children. They didn't offend any racial groups. We just loved them, and then hated them because we felt stupid loving them.
That's a shame, 'cause this is timeless catchy pop rock that will outlive any "knuke the Knack" memories.
By the way, "My Sharona" is STILL one of the greatest mindless pop singles ever. Admit it. You know it. You love it. Get over it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The lost art of Rock 'N Roll !!! May 5 2003
By Joey M.
Format:Audio CD
This album is Rock 'n Roll perfection. Honestly, this is one for the archives that can be securely placed next to any Beatles, Stones, or Kinks material you can name. Success was EARNED and DESERVED with this true power-pop gem and nobody speaking the words "one hit wonder" can EVER take that away. Yes, real Rock 'N Roll may now be a lost artform - but I thank the Knack for keeping it "alive and well" during my youth. As you listen to this wonderful CD you will realize that this was not only a spectacular debut for the Knack and a special moment in the history of Rock 'N Roll - it was also an end to an era. We're all living in a backstreet boy, britney spears nightmare now... so until real Rock 'N Roll makes a comeback, relive the magic and GET THE KNACK !!! Buy this CD!

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!
