Ratt (Reach For The Sky) 1988





Now I remember why I haven't listened to Reach For The Sky since basically the day it came out. It's a pretty weak album. It sounds like Ratt. It looks like Ratt. But it's not the Ratt of old. The album itself starts off very strong. But by the 3rd song, it's peaked. It's all down hill from here. The top song of course is Way Cool Jr., which showcased a more bluesier side of the band. It's a very creative and inventive song and all the credit goes to Warren DeMartini's rhythm playing with a way cool solo. Now days you can say it's a Ratt song 100%. But back when it came out the song for me showed they were more than just a Glam Metal band.

So what about the rest of the album? Pfftt. It's a lot of very average filler songs that aren't memorable by any stretch of the imagination. Not sure if the band as a whole was just bored by this time. I know that Robbin Crosby was in the throes of a crippling  h e r o i n  addiction at the time and may have contributed to a lackluster recording experience.

Album cover is horrible. To this day, I still don't get it.
