Product Description


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

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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the Definitive Ratt Album Feb. 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ratt'n Roll? No, I think Ratt'n Rock!!! Sept. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ratt was one of the first hard & heavy rock bands that I've heard in my life, at this moment I'm a heavy metal fan who has a lot of tastes, since this kind of soft, posser and glam metal to the extreme sounds as death metal or grindcore (Please don't get surprised about it, as a 38 years old man, I'm an open minded rocker for all the genres). But I remember the first time I've heard Ratt, I enjoy 'till now it's sound. The guitar duo with the late Robbin Crosby and Warren De Martini give me a fact as how can did they sound in an acid metal strings tapping or licking mode. Stephen Pearcy have an unique and "trademark" voice so powerful and Crucier & Blotzer did the complete end, a real glam metal machine with all its gears so solid and perfect in sound or motion. "Back for more" is a real power metal piece of work and technic melodic with nice riffs and beats, "wanted man" is the "lone far west" metal song and "round and round" was the high term of the commercial 80's metal. I respect a lot another bands as Motley Crue, Dokken, Quiet Riot, Hanoi Rocks and Poison, I enjoy heard them too as well, but Ratt is Rock. Don't look their looks, just heard their noise and get on!!!

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
