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.

Customer Reviews

Impressive Comeback!

Wow! The opening riffs of Eat Me Up made me feel like it was 1985 all over again; tough, tight and sleazy. This is Ratt all the way but they don't rip themselves off. It's as if this is just their next album after Detonator. The single, Best of Me, isn't close to being the best song. That distinction belongs to the appropriately titled As Good As It Gets. Other hot numbers are Take a Big Bite, Don't Let Go and Look Out Below. What a great time to be a power rock fan. In the last two years we've gotten excellent new albums from AC/DC, Ted Nugent, Motley Crue, Kiss, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath w/ Dio and now Ratt. I LOVE ROCK! Support these guys and buy a song or two. This is an age where older acts are mixed with newer ones and it ain't gonna last forever. Enjoy your ratt tails off!

ratt pack rocks

music does the talking. excellent job guys.

AS GOOD AS IT GETS

New Ratt in 2010 and they said it would never happen again. This is a big day for Ratt fans and heavy metal fans. Can't wait to see them tour with this album. Not a bad cut on the whole album. Go for the Special Edition download - it's worth the extra $3 bucks for the live songs.
