  • “We make Ratt n’ Roll music for Ratt n’ Roll people” — Stephen Pearcy circa 1990.

    This is the best Ratt greatest hits to date. You have 20 tracks all re-mastered. This is the perfect soundtrack for 80s rock lovers! A few of the tracks are from the 90s, but are in the same sonic tradition.

    I like how the set list is in non-chronological order. And I like how their biggest hits are spread across the cd. Unlike, older Ratt best of compilations “Round in Round” doesn’t appear at the beginning. I give them credit for starting things off with “Dangerous but Worth the Risk.” An excellent song that never had a video or was played on the radio.

    The only gripe I have is they included the clunky “Head I Win, Tails You Lose” again. So many better songs they could’ve picked. They should’ve scratched that and included a ballad like “I Want to Love You Tonight” or “Giving Yourself Away.”

    Also, because this is primarily the Atlantic years era there is nothing from their legendary self-titled e.p. Fingers crossed that the entire back catalogue gets revamped and reissued. A big cheese Ratt box set with rarities and live tracks would be sweet too.

    I saw these guys live this summer and I can’t wait for many more years of Ratt n’ Roll!
