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.
The unsung hero of this album is the late Bruce Gary on drums. Listen to his fills on "Your Number Or Your Name" for starters. All in
all, this is a truly enjoyable Power Pop album which remains timeless to me . Ignore the haters and give this one a spin, if you already
haven't done so hundreds of times
