The new album by Rattís original lead singer is what Portrait should have released a few years back. The attitude, the sleaze and the songs that helped define the band in the Ď80s is back. Itís too bad John Kalodner didnít get it. Rather than making Ratt viable again in the late Ď90s, he snipped off the bandís balls.
Luckily, Pearcy knows what Ratt-N-Roll is all about. Does the album break new ground musically? No, but who cares? Pearcy delivers eleven brand new tracks including "Gotta Be Me," "Turn It Upside Down" and "Ya Talkiní To Me," which could easily fit in Rattís back catalogue.
It would be nice to see the band reunite and make solid Ratt-N-Roll music such as Pearcyís Social Intercourse, but since the original Ratt is far from reuniting, this album is your best alternative and will make a good addition to anyoneís sleaze-rock collection.
