KNACK THE

Critique

The Knack fait son apparition en juin 1979 avec un doublé single/album qui restera inégalé cette année là. Placé en milieu de disque, le hit majeur « My Sharona » est une tuerie power pop qui dévaste les charts et s'installe au sommet six semaines d'affilée.

L'album Get the Knack, paru simultanément, bénéficie de cet engouement. Certifié disque d'or en treize jours, il se vend à cinq millions d'exemplaires et constitue l'un des débuts les plus fulgurants de l'histoire du rock. Hormis la ballade « Maybe Tonight », il est gavé de titres rapides traités à la moulinette : « Let Me Out », « Your Number Or Your Name » et « Good Girls Don't » sont les pépites d'un album bien ficelé.

Le groupe, souffrant d'un déficit d'image, aura du mal à survivre à son hit. Il se résout donc aux come-backs (en 1991, 1998 et 2001) et tournées nostalgiques, jusqu'à la disparition tragique de son leader Doug Fieger en 2010.

Eh eh comme je suis le premier à commenter je sais ce qui s'est passé depuis presque 30 ans: tout le monde pense que The Knack est un one hit wonder américain qui n'a produit que le méga tube My Sharona, une scie entétante qui a inondé les radios en 1979 (il n'y avait que trois radios en France à l'époque, si, si !). Tout faux. On m'avait offert l'album à l'époque et je l'avait écouté à reculons pour dès la première écoute tomber dans la marmite: The Knack était l'un de ses groupe qui essayaient tant bien que mal de tirer leur épingle du jeu dans la sortie du maelstrom créé par les punks jusqu'en Amérique pour se faire une place au soleil avec d'excellentes chansons, faciles à écouter, bien composées, bien jouées, avec une idée à chaque fois, finalement ils sont à mi-chemin entre les Blondie de Parallel Lines (un chef d'oeuvre de la pop new-wave us) et les Plimsouls d'a million miles away. Toutes les chansons sont bonnes, dans des styles parfois très différents mais sans ambiguité excellents et variés.
Ah quelle chance vous avez, de pouvoir découvrir aujourd'hui ce cd à coté duquel tout le monde est passé et qui n'a pas vieilli !

Aujourd'hui encore, The Knack est classé comme un groupe new wave, mais c'est uniquement dû au fait qu'ils sont apparus en 1979, en pleine période new wave. Leur truc en fait, c'est tout bonnement de la power pop, complètement ancrée dans les sixties. Je n'ai jamais écouté aucun autre de leurs disques, mais je doute qu'ils aient jamais écrit quoi que ce soit qui approche la perfection de My sharona, ce que semble confirmer le caractère quelconque de la face B de ce 45 tours, Let me out, une chanson pourtant sélectionnée pour ouvrir l'album Get the knack.

HASH(0x8ba5cb7c) étoiles sur 5 Unfarily maligned pop gem 23 juillet 2006
Par Gizmola - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Very few people today really understand this album, despite the fact that it sold over 10 million copies world wide. The knock on The Knack, primarily came from high brow music critics who dismissed the band as pale imitations of other bands they were not like at all. They were written off one hit wonders, when in fact, their first two albums were full of catchy songs, and as overnight sensations, when in fact they were seasoned veterans, who had struggled for years in the moribund LA club scene of the post disco 1970's, and through hard work, had built a huge local audience based on their energizing live shows. They were ultimately signed after as many as thirteen record companies joined in a bidding war.

The first thing to understand about this album, is that it is for all intents and purposes, a recording of the band live. It was recorded in just eleven days at the staggering cost of just $17,000, which made it one of the most successful albums in history. With substantial airplay and heat around Good girls Don't and My Sharona, the album went gold in just 13 days. The Knack embarked on a sold out national tour where they rippped through the album night after night in a way that's only possible for bands who have honed their material through years of live performance. Less than 8 months later, they recorded their second album in two weeks, and it promptly went multi platinum.

With that kind of success comes an inevitable amount of envy and naysaying. For its critics, The Knack were second class musicians, aping other better bands, and marketing themselves as a latter day Fab four. What the critics never really understood, is that success of The Knack was base on their synthesis of LA's punk scene DIY ethos, 1960's Brit Rock, and American rockabilly. After years of Disco dominating the charts, the stripped down uptempo punch of this album cut through the airwaves like a knife. The Knack blazed a trail that the new wave rock bands of the 1980's followed to fame and fortune.

Lyricist Doug Fieger focused most of his songs on teen angst from the male point of view, and in doing so, he spoke directly to a huge under served teen audience, while at the same time, sewing the seeds of The Knacks demise. No self obsessed ink merchant would ever be able to preserve his or her dignity as long as The Knack was around, with their songs about unrequited teenage lust, embarrasment, sexual frustration, and heavy petting, as if the Knack had invented the topic.

The Knack were tirelessly hounded by the press, with a venom unrivaled until the Milli Vanilli fiasco. This war culminated with the inclusion of this album on Rolling Stone's infamous "Worst #1 Albums of all time List." Would it surprise anyone to find that "Get the Knack" came in on that list at #1?

The proof as they say, is in the Vinyl. Get the Knack is one of those albums that you can put on, and play all the way through. There's not a clunker in the bunch, and many of my favorite songs on the album were never singles, including "Your Number or your name", "Oh Tara", "Maybe tonight", "That's what the little girls do", and the riproaring closer "Frustrated". The Knack was in its day, one of those rare bands where what you got on record was exactly what you got live. Its long past due time this album regained the respect that it deserves.

HASH(0x8ba5cbd0) étoiles sur 5 If you don't like this CD, you don't have a clue! 26 décembre 2005
Par J. McDonald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I've seen several negative reviews of "Get the Knack" and I really have to wonder if those reviewers even have a clue as to what real "Rock N' Roll" is. There is certainly more to this album (and the Knack) than just My Sharona. Simply put, this album is PACKED with great songs and is one of the greatest Power Pop releases of all time.

The knack scored THREE top 40 hits plus another top ten AOR hit, so the term "one hit wonder" DOESN'T apply. But when you have a hit the size of "My Sharona", it's easy to understand why some people think ONLY of that song. Sharona is still one of the biggest selling singles in the HISTORY of rock and is also one of only TWELVE songs in the HISTORY of the charts to re-enter the hot 100 - more than a decade later!

Songs like "your number or your name", "oh Tara" and "maybe tonight" are pure power pop perfection. If you don't understand what the Knack ACCOMPLISHED with this album, you'll probably want to avoid buying anything by the Beatles or Kinks as well. The huge success of this album was well deserved and reviewers from the past or present can never take that away.

On the follow up release ("...but the little girls understand"), you'll find MANY more truly great songs by the Knack, including a great cover of the Kinks "the hard way" (arguably, even better than the original)!

"Round Trip" (the third album) suffers from a few duds, but I give the Knack credit for trying to move in a new direction and NOT simply deliver another "Sharona". Worth checking out!

I also highly recommend the DVD documentary "Getting the Knack", for those interested in gaining a bit more knowledge of this group.

If you like Rock'N Roll and don't own this CD.... you've got problems!

* Special Note *

Bruce Gary, The Knack's original drummer (on the first three albums) died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma on August 22, 2006. He was a well respected drummer in the industry, playing with artists such as George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Stephen Stills, Jack Bruce, Albert Collins, John Lee Hooker, Randy Meisner, Robby Kreiger and many others. Fans of the Knack will never forget him! Our sincere condolences to his family!

Doug Fieger, the Knack's lead vocalist and primary song writer, lost his long battle with cancer on Valentine's Day (2-14-2010). Doug was a brilliant pop song writer, coming up with some of the finest PowerPop tunes of all time. You will be missed Doug!

HASH(0x8ba5f024) étoiles sur 5 One singular sensation. 6 janvier 2003
Par M J Heilbron Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.

Ah...the Summer of '79. More than 25,000 punch-drunk baseball "fans" partake in the apocalyptic mayhem known as "Disco Demolition Night" at Chicago's Comiskey Park. Disco, the antithesis of rockers everywhere, dies a symbolic death in a fiery explosion that hot July evening. Meanwhile, the Knack's "My Sharona", a naughty, blistering ode to teenage sexuality, owns the # 1 spot atop the charts for weeks on end. Unbeknownst to anyone, the hands of time were cruelly ticking and the Knack's fifteen minutes were nearly over. Call it blind optimism, but we rampaging juveniles thought these guys would rule the universe forever.
Yes, Capitol Records shamelessly cashed in on the Beatlesque qualities of this energetic L.A. quartet and yes, it was all so brutally calculated. But, who really cares? And more more importantly, who really cared in 1979 when the only two pop records that mattered were "Get the Knack" and Cheap Trick's "Live at Budokan" ? We ate this stuff up. And for good reason. It rocked. It tugged at our hearts and stroked our raging teenage hormones. And most of all, it shredded everything else in that homogenus gutter known as Top 40. It was part punk, part Liverpool and for that one glorious Summer it was all ours. "Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't" were mega-hits, but every tune on the LP (as we called them back then) is pure killer power pop. The guitars slammed, the drums were punchier than a drunk brawler in a Sunset Strip bar and the hooks were unforgetable. "Oh, Tara", "That's What the Little Girls Do" and "Lucinda" were all catchy enough to have charted. Heck, they even pulled off a dynamite Buddy Holly cover with the infectious "Heartbeat".
Twenty years later, they're are plenty of gutsy, rockin' bands just like the Knack. Problem is, no one knows about them. Record companies won't touch 'em. No, they want serious stuff. You know, stuff like rap/metal, sappy singer songwriters and teenage creampuffs. Oh well, you can't beat 'em, so go ahead and get the Knack and rejoice in the pleasure that is/was rock-n-roll. They don't make them like this anymore!

HASH(0x8ba5f4d4) étoiles sur 5 The Knack-Attack 12 mai 2002
Par Christopher - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow.....The album that pretty much killed Disco. GET THE KNACK is an amazing album even without one of the Top 125 songs of all-time, MY SHARONA. This album speaks to teenage boy angst as much as any LP ever recorded. A traditional 4 piece unit with a sound that is pure club/bar band. No crazy studio effects here...only straight forward Rock n' Roll. The Knack's sound got compared to the Beatles largely due to the following three Pop Gems: "YOUR NUMBER OR YOUR NAME", "OH TARA", and "WHAT THE LITTLE GIRLS DO", all Beatlesque tunes driven by the rhythm section. The bass lines are great, the drumming right on, and the harmonies very familiar. But, then comes five more pop/rock gems that can only be called "Knackesque" all characterized by a driving beat, great drum and bass work, and Doug Fieger's perfect vocal delivery: "MY SHARONA" Classic! a driving, addictive beat that does not allow you to sit still, "GOOD GIRLS DON'T" perfect pop/rock. Naughty stuff by 1979 standards. Check out the lyrics on this one. "FRUSTRATED" MY SHARONA Junior, but, does not really take much of a back seat. The Title itself tells you what the song is about. "SELFISH (SHE'S SO)" one of the best songs about a stuck-up chick you'll ever hear. Love the teasingly long intro. "SIAMESE TWINS (THE MONKEY AND ME)" deviates from the LP's "guy wants chick, needs sex theme" by discussing...what else....drugs. Listen to the drums on this one! Fieger shows his sensitive side with "MAYBE TONIGHT" A cute, underrated gem. I always viewed "LET ME OUT" "LUCINDA" and "HEARTBEAT" as being listenable filler. So...what you've got is a vintage album of 12 songs that do not [stink]. That is about 12 more than anything you'll pick up today.
