LA's gift to power-pop lovers everywhere, The Knack burst out of the gate in '79 with My Sharona, one of the most infectious anthems of the new-wave era. Here's that and the hits Good Girls Don't; Baby Talks Dirty; Can't Put a Price on Love, and Pay the Devil plus their best album tracks!

If you want to have one Knack collection and don't want to spend a lot, this is a very good retrospective. Of course, "My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't" are here, along with a few neglected classics ("You're Number or Your Name") and some harder to find songs such as the Springsteen penned "Don't Look Back". If you want just one album by this band, then it really should be "Get the Knack", but this is the best of the three or four career retrospectives.

Made in USA in 1999, Serial# 72435-20581-2-9, Playing Time 35:18
This CD is part of EMI's "10 Best Series", which consists of putting what the record company deems to be the 10 best tracks from the artist.
This compilation features tracks up to their 3rd album, "Round Trip", plus 1 song (Don't Look Back) left in the vaults until the "Retrospective" album issued back in 1992.
THE KNACK, mostly known for "My Sharona", make basic but catchy music; I'd call it "Fun Rock": straight ahead, unpretentious melodies, that make you want to "get up and dance". The sad part is that the CD only lasts 35 minutes, their writing style consisting of 3-minute songs.
If you've got other retrospectives, you'll probably pass up on this; but if you don't, it's a good place to get exposed to their songwriting skills.

I agree with "Great Place to Visit ... " 's review. This is acceptable for a best of compilation, but if you know The Knack from songs like "My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't", plus you like the new wave power pop of groups like Cheap Trick, Squeeze, or the Romantics (with a vocalist, though, similar to Queens' Freddie Mercury), and/or you like post-modern Beatlesque ... you'd really be better with this group's great debut album, Get the Knack. However, the compilation here gives a good overview of the band, overall, and may show a little more expansion of their skills. I just happen to fall into the former category and feel that the first half of Get the Knack ... is dynamite.

The first time I heard their hit song, I thought it was a Toyota commercial, and the guy was singing, "my Corona." Then someone told me I was an idiot, and I always think about that when I hear it. This is a really good album, and their ties are narrow.

I have no capability whatsoever to have an MP3 player or an I-Pod, so I rely on being able to still purchase CDs to play, listen to and enjoy. Obviously, I purchased this so I could have My Sharona to listen to.

A very good compilation of a band that could have done much more in the history of rock. Unfortunately, they disbanded, but the outcome left by far deserves an opportunity.
