Out of the Cellar

Although I never knew it in 1984, in retrospect I can see, Ratt was a better band than Motley Crue. The musicianship was superior across the board, the songs were better and so was the production. Iíve always liked Ratt, and I bought all of their albums, but for some reason, I never gave them the credit they deserved until years later. I guess when I was thirteen, I never wanted to admit that a band could be better than the Crue. Anyway this was Rattís grand entrance spawning the single Round and Round that would forever define the bandís sound and style. This rating like those given to the early Crue cds is based partially on itís impact at the time. Required for any 80ís metal collection. --Scott
