Product Description

Amazon.ca

Along with Motley Crue, Quiet Riot and Twisted Sister, Ratt was one of the main players of the '80s glam metal movement. Although many of their songs lacked diversity and emotional poignancy, their guitarist Warren De Martini possessed the flash and technical ability to escalate the group above most of its peers. Out of the Cellar is by far the band's best record, but between the blazing solos and call-and-response choruses are many lackluster moments. What saves it from the bargain bin, however, is the quintessential metal anthem "Round and Round," one of the greatest three-or-so minutes in '80s rock. --Jon Wiederhorn

By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Ratt's debut album Out of the Cellar is often referred to as Glam and Hair Metal but truth is, Out of the Cellar was very much what would be considered a metal album during the 1980's, and at that point in 1984 it certainly was metal. Ratt is in fact a little edgier than many of the other glam bands and had more in common with Motley Crue than Poison. The band is one of the better Glam bands, one of those that really are worth listening to as they had a certain attitude that made them interesting and less of a "soft" band than other Glam bands. Out of the Cellar is very much a masterpiece of Glam Metal just like Led Zeppelin IV is an essential Hard-rock album, just like British Steel is an iconic Metal album, just like Master of Puppets is a masterpiece of Thrash Metal. OOTC is one of the best of its kind is what I mean, it's one of the best Glam AND 1980's rock albums.

When people think of Ratt the first song that usually comes to mind is Round and Round and it's definitely the band's signature song. The band had the right timing with this song and its video which MTV aired quite a lot back then. However, there is a lot more to Ratt than this great song. Opening track Wanted Man is an excellent opener, very edgy and heavy, one of the album's best songs. You're In Trouble is very enjoyable, a good catchy song that has all the right elements which makes OOTC a strong album. I quite like Lack of Communication, Pearcy sounds very energetic and angry on this one, lots of attitude. Back For More is an amazing rocking ballad, it rocks and it's not a power ballad, it just has a soft chorus and it's one of the album's strongest tracks. Morning After and I'm Insane are good rockers. I'm not a huge fan of She Wants Money but those 10 tracks rock and together make a very good album.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very good debut April 5 2005
By The One
Format:Audio CD
I'm glad that I have this album in my collection. I really do like this album. There are about two songs in which I'm not too crazy for, but besides that, a very good debut album. I will be getting another Ratt album in the future because I know it's going to live up to the debut release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential 80's Metal! May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my all-time favorite CDs. It is the example of 80's hair metal in a nutshell: the makeup and the hairspray, the catchy chorus, the pink Epiphone Explorers. The album kicks off with the heavy Wanted Man, then comes the best hair metal song ever, Your'e In Trouble. Every inch of that song is all hair metal should be. It also has one of the best choruses known to man. Then comes Ratt's only Top Twenty hit, Round And Round. Then all the other songs in their hairsprayed, spandexed glory. The album closes with the cool but rather repetitive Scene Of The Crime. This is one of the greatest albums ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Debut April 19 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just a great debut. There are no week tracks on this one. Just a hungry young band from LA. Their later material seem to suffer from repetitiveness, but for this album and the next two, these guys wrote and played some catchy pop metal, that helped define the decade. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST BANDS FROM THE 80'S April 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
I REMEMBER BUYING "OUT OF THE CELLAR" WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT ON TAPE, AND MAN I WORE THAT THING OUT THE FIRST DAY I BOUGHT IT. SUCH A GREAT ALBUM, FULL OF GREAT SONGS FROM START TO FINISH. STEPHEN PEARCY VOCAL'S ARE JUST ONE OF THE BEST AS FAR AS SINGERS GO. THEIR ALL GREAT MUSICIANS. RATT ALWAYS HAD A KNACK FOR WRITTING GREAT HOOKS AND CATCHY SONGS, EVEN MOST OF THE NON-HITS WERE GREAT. BUT IF YOU'RE JUST NOW CHECKING OUT RATT, THIS IS THE PLACE TO START. MY REVIEW IS ALSO DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF ROBBIN CROSBY, WHO SADDLY PASSED AWAY FROM AIDS. REST IN PEACE ROBBIN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ratt; but no cheese here...... April 20 2004
By Hilow
Format:Audio CD
This CD rocks! The production is mesmerizing. My Favorites are "Your Direction" and "Communication" and the last one I think it is called "Scence of the Crime".
"Your Direction" starts with a single over driven guitar a-chugga-chugga chow, a- chugga chugga chow, then the rythm guitar cranks up, a chugga chugga chow, a- chugga chugga chow
it cranks. I cannot listen to this one while driving. I must pull over while other concerned drivers pass witnessing my epileptic fist pump and head bang. I usually listen to it next to a homeless camp in golden gate park. The winos really like this one (hey Jeb,its that ratt guy again!); a definite get outta yer' cardboard box and jamm'er.
"Communication" is different. Though formulated like most hard rock, "Communication" is a whole different dimension. Still excellent guitar but the playing is so tight and unified. Superb. Definitely a cut above other rock bands efforts. Vocals are tight and superb.

"Scene" Well the first 2.5 minutes of this song are head and shoulders above any attemps at rock to date (I mean anything). The intro is purely theatrics. A solo guitar repeating a highly over-driven diminishing scale in the upper registers, repeating again and again followed by some kind of timing thing with the drummer, No bass no vocals just the guitar driving high above the tom drum separate then, guitar rolling into another octave they combine and then the vocals "I wanna rock........ but you your there to ro-oll.... I came by your house but you you were'nt alone.............."
You must buy this album. I left a copy of this in my girlfriends car, all she listens to is crappy KOIT soft rock less talk, she picked me up one day and she was totally rocking out to this CD. She won't give it back! I'm a little scared.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heavy metal staple
In the 1970's, heavy metal was full of bands with original sounds. No one band sounded just like another. Then in 1978, one of L.A's best bands made their recorded debut-Van Halen. Read more
