"Tell The World: The Very Best Of Ratt" is a career-spanning compilation album featuring twenty tracks from all seven of Ratt's albums, including their quartet of consecutive platinum LPs from the mid-to-late-'80s: Out of the Cellar, Invasion of Your Privacy, Dancing Undercover and Reach for the Sky, plus their 1990 album Detonator and their self titled 1999 album.
"Ratt" is the self-titled sixth studio album by the American glam metal band Ratt. Often referred to as "1999" by fans (partially to avoid confusion with their EP, which was also self-titled), this album saw the band's musical direction shift to a more blues-influenced rock sound and further away from their previous glam metal roots. This is the first studio album to feature bassist Robbie Crane.
Ratt's comeback album Collage finds the Los Angeles hair-metal band acting as if the '90s were the '80s, meaning that they're just turning out the same three-chord, good-time party rock as before. Surprisingly, the band doesn't sound nearly as tired as they did on Detonator, the last album they recorded before breaking up, performing these entirely predictable songs with some passion. That doesn't make Collage a great record, especially since the group fails to write really memorable hooks, but it is competent and fitfully enjoyable and a perfectly respectable comeback effort.
