GET THE KNACK is a finely crafted album of hard hitting Power Pop that I’ve been enjoying since I was 10 years old. At that age, I was blissfully unaware of all of the controversy surrounding The Knack. Despite its meteoric success in 1979, the band had many detractors who resented their inexplicably fast rise to the top, the tongue-in-cheek marketing nods to The Beatles and the seeming arrogance of their band in not allowing interviews. These controversies have already been more than adequately discussed elsewhere, so let’s focus on the music.
It's hard to remember why this album inspired so much antagonism back in 1979. Most of the songs treat girls as alien but desirable creatures, and singer Doug Fieger is maybe a little too gleeful about the dirty thoughts they inspire, but as art crimes go those are misdemeanors. The power pop sublimity of "My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't," on the other hand, is a rare achievement. It's hard to remember why this album inspired so much antagonism back in 1979.
