Seven years after the failed comeback Serious Fun, the Knack reunited with new drummer Terry Bozzio in tow and recorded Zoom. Sounding like a re-energized and de-sleazed version of Get the Knack, Zoom is the best album the maligned power pop band has recorded since their debut. Doug Fieger's songwriting is sharp and melodic and the band delivers the tunes with vigor. A few cuts are a little undistinguished, but there are more solid, memorable songs here than on most of their albums, and that alone makes it a successful comeback. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
