"Rocket o' Love" is one part "All Right Now", one part "Mony Mony" and two parts Cheap Trick. It's fun but I think the guys were trying too hard to write a radio hit. My favorite track on this CD is the mid-tempo AOR gem, "One Day at a Time". By the end of the disc, things get pretty hokey and out of ten, I'd give this a 5.

I really love this C.D and they prove they can Rock as good as alot of the Hair Bands.Rocket O' love is really a kick ass Jam!!

From: Axelinger Date: January 19, 2004 at 19:08
Billy Ward???? What is this -- Knack Sabbath?

From: Propane Date: November 30, 2004 at 17:19
Who's idea was it to insert these guys?! They STUNK! Their Album stinks and they don't have any talent. Sorry guys, bands like this are why we hate new wave (80's). DO NOT SUPPORT THESE ASSHOLES BY BUYING THIS CRAP.

From: tipp88 Date: April 6, 2005 at 16:38
Propane Ive been reading alot of your posts and it is pretty obvious U don't like the 80's genre rock style of music.let me guess?U Probably like limp shitzkit and Korn(in my sh*t).Everyone it has now been confirmed.....Propane is a special needs child!!!!Translation ...He is a Retard!!!!!!!!!!!

From: tipp88 Date: April 6, 2005 at 16:40
By the way for a bubblegum rock band in the late 70's this album is damn good!!!It's definitely worth the $$$.

"My Sharona" that's the one!!!.

From: andi Date: October 27, 2011 at 16:56
i don´t know how to describe this Album....it´s not really Hardrock but it rocks if you understand....some Songs recalls me like a Mix of Aerosmith and Thunder...some Songs get really similar to E.L.O(Body Talk remembers me to E.L.O´s "Hold on tight"....)and the last Song is just a little bit similar to Queen with Brian May on vocals!!!!Very different Album!!!First Songs are good Party Rock Songs!!My fave´s are "River of Sighs" and "Shine"

From: Doug Date: November 21, 2011 at 14:41
"Andi's" description is a good one. A harder edged Knack for sure. It's not bad.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 25, 2011 at 19:26
A pleasant rocking surprise with some AOR added too!!!...indeed and album that will put a smile in your face of happiness ...i've just gotten the re-issue with 4 bonus tracks...my faves are "Rocket O' Love","One Day At A Time"(nice AOR),"River Of Sighs","Won't Let Go/Aces And Eights"(AORish),"Body Talk","Your Mau Mau","Down With The Blond parts I & II"(bonus track and with some Led Zeppelin feel),"Nowhere To Run"(bonus track and a cover of Martha & The Vandellas best song,the original version of Martha appeared in the movie The Warriors)& "A Prayer(bonus track and a nice one)...recommended album....The Knack is not only "My Sharona" ...90/100
