Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP repressing remastered by Joe Reagoso from the original Atlantic Records tapes, The Out Of The Cellar album features 10 hard hitting Rock masterworks including their top charting hit singles 'Round And Round', 'Back For More' and 'Wanted Man' as well as a plethora of Metal radio classics.
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

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.Read more ›
"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.
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!

Classic L.A. hard rock album! Must have. Ratt's EP, then this album, and Invasion of your Privacy, are must haves for hard rock fans. There isn't a weak song on this album.Published 18 days ago by Amazon Customer
Only drawback to this is that the marketing guys thought it would be a good idea to print "Flashback" on the inner-jacket. I hate that I can't remove it. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Low351

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... Read morePublished on April 19 2013 by Sir Steven
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. Read morePublished on April 5 2005 by The One
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. Read morePublished on May 22 2004 by HeadbangerDuh
