iTunes Review

Eleven years since their last album, Ratt return with 2010’s Infestation and take hair metal back to the mid-‘80s, even as its members lurk around 50 years old. Close your eyes and it’s the same attack that made 1984’s Out of the Cellar an essential piece of the lite-metal puzzle. Guitarist Robbin Crosby passed in 2002, but singer Stephen Pearcy reunited with Warren DeMartini and Bobby Blotzer and added Quiet Riot’s Carlos Cavazo to the band while writing up tunes that sound like they belong to a band twenty-five years younger. Pearcy’s still a leering, swaggering partyhound with a nose for wild women and DeMartini and Cavazo whip out the twin guitar attack and the vintage solos with the same kick and precision of old. “Eat Me Up Alive” is a metalhead’s anthem. “Look Out Below” features some prime riffage and “Last Call” features the ensemble vocals and deep, cavernous echo that made these guys such a formidable group back in their day.

Infestation

The best 80"s rock album released since the 80'S! Seriously! This is great. The first song "Eat Me Up Alive" will go down as an absolute Ratt classic. "Best of Me" is a good pop guitar song and would have been top 20 in USA in 1985. "Lost Weekend" is the little brother of "Lack of Communication". The rest of the album is very very good. Most Ratt albums have a few fillers but I'm still trying to find the filler on this one. I even bought the "bonus" track called "Scatter" and even though it doesn't fit with the other songs on this album it is also a damn good tune. This album made #30 on Billboard charts. These guys should leave the lawyers alone and keep writing quality tunes likes these. Party on dudes!
