Album of the Day
Out of the Cellar
March metal madness continues with Ratt's OUT OF THE CELLAR; their Atlantic debut may have been the L.A. glam metal band's second album but it's the one that made the group worldwide stars. They also had a bit of help from MTV, which gave the “Round And Round” video (featuring a great cameo from Milton Berle) plenty of play in 1984. But the 10-song collection has much more to it than that #12 hit single; catchy choruses abound on such originals as “Wanted Man,” “Back For More” and “I'm Insane,” and Stephen Pearcy's raspy vocals coupled with lead guitarist Warren DeMartini's insistent licks make OUT OF THE CELLAR damn near irresistible. The triple-platinum smash is surely Ratt's finest hour, and one of the definitive albums from the days of spandex and big hair.
