It happens all the time. Popular bands break up, then years later they reunite and sadly wind up sounding little like the turbo-fueled entities they once were when they started. Then there are the rare exceptions – like Ratt.

Customer Reviews

Ratt, to me, were one of the best hair metal bands out there.
Scott
Stephen Pearcy's vocals are at their best and Warren DeMartini always amazes with his guitar work!

Ratt was a GREAT band, and in my opinion, this is their best album.

During our family's annual summer vacation, my cousin had found this tape on the beach after a huge beach July 4th party back in 1984, someone had left it behind. After a trade involving a frisbee and two packs of firecrackers, I took the tape back to the condo. After shaking the sand from the cassette and listening to the whole album, I came to the conclusion that I had come out on the winning side of the deal. I've since bought this on CD and still enjoy listening to it.
If you ever wanted to know what 80's pop/glam metal was all about, look no further than this album. This album was a massive hit and a big step forward from their Ratt EP, putting Ratt at the top of the metal heap of the early 80's. Some people have said "Detonator" or "Dancing Undercover" are the band's best albums...I disagree. While those albums are good, this is definitely their best. No question about it.
With this album, Ratt crafted a distinctive look and sound all their own. From the opening of "Wanted Man" to the last cord of "Scene of the Crime," you have an excellent album. Top notch prodution, the songwriting, the blazing Warren DeMartini guitar solos, they're all here and then some.
The biggest hit from this album is "Round and Round," followed by "Wanted Man," a great opening song for the album. You also get a reworking of "Back For More" from the Ratt EP, this version being a huge improvement over the first.
The only downside...yep...the hair band lable. Do not let that sway you. These guys were on the music scene prior to the blow-dried-no-talent-wannabes that left nothing but empty Aqua Net cans on the music scene.
If you have their greatest hits album and want more, get this, you won't be sorry. Enjoy -- and thanks for reading!

I was first introduced to Ratt on Friday Night Videos in 1984 when they first showed the video for "Round and Round." (You know, that really cool video with Milton Berle!) I liked the song immediately, and it didn't take more than the next 3 times I heard it to make me badly want to get the album "Out Of The Cellar." Just before I did, I had already heard the follow-up single "Back For More." ANOTHER killer track!! I bought the album, and it remained one of my most-played albums that year. The above two songs were my favorite, plus I also liked "You're In Trouble" and "Wanted Man". Sorry, but "Lack of Communication" never did it for me, I basically refer to it as "Lackluster Communication."
Ratt was a group that had a glam image, but were certainly not a bubblegum group by any means. They had a good, crunchy sound; more melodic than the Crue and no less talented. Ratt was also never one to ride on anybody's coattails. I've always found it interesting that as soon as they became big, they distanced themselves from other L.A.-based heavy metal bands. (You would have expected a young band like them to do the opposite.) First of all, they described themselves as hard rock, and they went out of their way to distance themselves from the "heavy metal" category. In fact, lead singer Stephen Pearcy STILL maintains that Ratt was not really a heavy metal band at all, just a regular hard rock band. Whether or not this would accurately describe their style of music I guess is a matter of personal taste, and is therefore subjective. In any case, I have always respected them for being very non-pretensious about themselves. Listen to their music and decide for yourself what they are.

If you want a cd that sums up hair metal in like 9 songs, this is the one. Every song you can just imagine being played in some Sunset Strip club. While many might say the title for greatest glam cd should go to The Crue's Shout at the Devil, or Poison's Look What The Cat Dragged In, this is actually better.
Every song has a catchy chorus worthy singing along to (just listen to Your'e In Trouble if ya doubt me) and conjours up images of spandex, makeup, and hairspray.

When I saw Ratt open for Ozzy in 1984, I was 14 year old and I wasn't that impressed. They were loud and Stephen Pearcy was as foul-mouthed a frontman as any metal singer could be and that was about it. Being that the show was in San Diego, most of Ratt's hometown, well...maybe they were just trying to show off. Anyway...I ended up buying Out Of The Cellar on cassette tape right before I left on a three week cross-country family vacation. Being ill prepared for the travel I had only packed three cassette tapes (Dio's The Last In Line, Out Of The Cellar & Ozzy's Bark At The Moon). Well...three weeks is a long time on the road and in the back of the family van...to New York and back to SD. Lots of time to just sit back and listen and that's what I did. Out Of The Cellar became one of my favorite albums and is still on my all-time list. Could it be that I know it like that back of my hand? Maybe? But familiarity usually breeds contempt and I have nothing but respect for Out Of The Cellar. Wanted Man. Round And Round. Back For More. The obvious MTV hits. Killer. Then you have You're In Trouble, Lack Of Communication, In Your Direction & She Wants Money. Juvenile? Probably. But what part of 80's Metal wasn't? Please. This album absolutely f*cking rox! Warren Di Martini is a shredder that never really gets to show you how good he really is. Pearcy's strange style is mezmerizing. Solid. Hands down, one of the best metal albums of all time. Brings back a lot of memories for me. Classic.

Dig it.
