By C.S.
Hair metal 1980's style is often criticized but filled a carloads of individuals who have little or no knowledge of the genre.
One of the bright spots on a seemingly mythical dark tale that is often told about 80's rock are the Los Angeles, California outfit known as Ratt.
With so much competition in the area - Motley Crue Dokken,and the already established Van Halen to choose from and to rock out to,it would seem impossible to gain a foothold of originality in this over- crowded marketplace.
With the cannonfire like drum beat and sound of Bobby Blotzer, the raspy and rough vocals of Stephen Pearcy, the dual guitar attack of Robbin Crosby (rhythm) and Warren De Martini (lead) combo and the penetratingly solid bass playing of Juan Crouchier (a former Dokken memeber),Ratt created a balanced metal sound .
The bass like tonation of Blotzer and Crouchier work in poisionous tandem with Crosby and De Marini on "Reach" and they strike a smooth balance - no one group of musicians overwhelm the other in the playing and recording process, making 'Reach For he Sky" a gem based on production alone.
Blotzer begins the assault with a funk -filled double bass-drum beat that fuels "City To City", while De Martini sprinkles the ingredients of wailing guitar riff on top of Pearchy's opening screams and Crosby's vicious co - lead on "I Want A Woman".
The next track "Way Cool Jr" is record company driven, elementary school pop all the way as a early resting point after the fast start created by the opening tracks..

Ratt may not have been a top-40 metal band but they never ceased to put out good music (except for some Detonator tracks)...
Reach For The Sky is just a good, solid album with lots of hooks, great lyrics, and unique among the Ratt albums. The first few albums were very similar in style...though I love them lots still...and this album is different.

Taking into account hair, glam metal, RATT can be regarded as one of the most important bands for that genre. But their fourth LP "Reach for the Sky" is not their best achievement. Therefore, in my opinion their second LP "Out of The Cellar" is beyond comparison. Taking into consideration the music from "Reach for the Sky" we may feel that the album as a whole is fairly uneven. Some poor tracks co-exist with good or very good songs. In my estimation, the songs "Way Cool Jr" and "Don't bite the hand that feeds" stand out from the rest. They are simply the poorest. First two songs on the album "City to City" and "I want a woman" would meet the expectations of the most demanding heavy metal fans. The track number 5 "I want to love you tonight" is a pretty, memorable ballad. As regards five tracks which remain ("Chain Reaction", "No surprise", "Bottom line", "What's it gonna be", "What I'm after") it must be said that each of them is good or even smashing. But to be honest my favourite tracks are "Chain Reaction" and "What I'm after".
To end with, "Reach for the Sky" is one of the best hair or glam metal albums of the 1980s. It can be comparable to "Invasion of your privacy". Undoubtedly, it is slightly poorer than "Out of The Cellar". In brief, if you are a fan of heavy metal rock you will need to get "Reach for the Sky" to add it to your private collection of CDs. It will be money well spent.

LA hard rockers Ratt released their fourth album "Reach for the Sky" in 1988. This album marked a slight change for the band's sound; it showed them taking a more blues-rock approach to their music than previously seen. While not their best outing, this is still a pretty solid Ratt record.

To more than a few Ratt fans this album is one of their least favorites. I'm not really sure why exactly. This has everything that their previous albums had minus the terrible attempt at a ballad. I love Ratt a lot, but man, that ballad took quite a while for me to get into. The sound is virtually the same as before, but sees a heavier attempt at blues inspired hard rock. This would prove to be the band's last album with producer Beau Hill; their next album "Detonator" would see the band hiring former Bon Jovi producer Desmond Child to take the helm. My favorite songs from this album are "I Want A Woman," "Way Cool Jr," "What's It Gonna Be" and "Bottom Line."

This is just another fine attempt at Ratt to make a terrific record. This baby is easily one of my favorites, constantly getting spins on my iPod or CD player. No way melodic rock fans won't dig this outing, and you may be pleasantly surprised at how good this actually is.

I did not have this album growing up in the 80's. Some of the songs are familiar from the greatest hits album, but I was surprised to find that there are some other songs that I really like. My wife and I have made "Bottom Line" our anniversary song.
