2.5 averageRobbit | December 14th 16

The Knack's 2nd album was a huge disappointment after such an inspired debut. It's largely just a half baked rehash of the first album and most of the songs aren't compelling enough for a second spin. The main single "Baby Talk Is Dirty" re-purposed "My Sharona's" octave skipping guitar riff in a catchy way, but the Fieger's porpoise-like squealing and S&M fixated lyrics were just WAY too creepy for many casual fans. It's no surprise that the song rose no higher than #38 on the Billboard singles chart. Their failed single "Can't Put A Price On Love" is a bit more palatable, but still no great shakes. Plus, it probably wasn't such a great idea to have an album title that sounds like an apology. For many fans like myself, that was warning enough to spend my money elsewhere.
