RATT's debut album was glam metal at its best. Sleezy, catchy, in-yer-face metal that took as much pride in hairspray as it did in the music. One of the earlier successes in pop-metal, RATT actually scored a top 40 hit in the US with “Round And Round.” The fact is that most of the tracks on this album are equally infectious. I always thought of this band as a louder version of Aerosmith for some reason. They have the same attitude and songwriting skills, however they didn't have the same staying power. On this first album it was the right look, the right sound and the right everything at the right time. I find this to be one of the better glam metal releases of the 80s that still sounds good even today. Although they had several decent albums after this debut, it was this one that sounded good from beginning to end with one strong track after another.

From the frantic prowling of "Wanted Man" to the blasting celebration of "Round and Round", Ratt epitomized the glam metal breakthrough in 1984 with the twin guitar attack of DeMartini-Crosby and the slutty sleazy voice of Pearcy and established a new genre called Ratt n' Roll. "Lack of Communication" got the dirty rhythm and "Back For More" is so freakinly addictive, you want to kept coming back for another listen. Other worthy tracks that was estranged and buried six feet under are "The Morning After", "She Wants Money", and "Scene of The Crime".

Going triple platinum is not an easy task but they sealed it, and thank God they went big and poisoned many newer bands otherwise glam won't last that long. Seeing Crosby's long time girlfriend Tawny Kitaen in her lusty torn lingerie crawling actually made it easier to spot this record in the local store. A truly influential album that you had to buy and listen before you die!
