Best Of Compilations -- Band 2: RATT


Recommended Posts

This is going to be very tough. Lots of great tracks litter their releases. Same rules as the first thread: 1 CDR of 80 minutes.

 

What's your Best Of RATT!!??

Ratt is one band that released a Best Of that really did the band's legacy justice. No real glaring omissions were left off. It probably still ranks as my fav all time best of from a Hair Rock band. So no real need for me to make a 80 minute cd-r.

Yeah, it is a really good compilation CD. Some of my favourite Ratt songs are missing though (especially 'Between the Eyes' and 'Got Me On the Line') so I've used the 'Ratt & Roll' track list, taken a few songs out and added the ones I prefer at the end (haven't worked out the running time though, so hope I'm inside the 80 minutes, otherwise I'll have to take a song out):

Mate, that is extremely difficult. For many years, they were one of the most consistent hard rock bands around imo. This is an attempt at my Ratt top ten:

  1. Round And Round
  2. You're In Love
  3. Between The Eyes
  4. Got Me On the Line
  5. Wanted Man
  6. Back For More
  7. One Step Away
  8. City To City
  9. Scratch That Itch
  10. Lay It Down

It is if it isn't a joke, but each to his own ... Ratt were awesome back in the day. So many good albums.

 

Enjoying this thread idea. Can I propose Scorpions and White Lion for future threads?

You beat me to the Scorpions! lol I've done the Dokken and Ratt comps. I'm only doing their 80's & 90's stuff as I feel that is what I listen to the most from theses bands, although I do like their later works.

    • Folk, Prog, AORish.... however you wanna categorize them, these are some of the best vocal harmonies I've heard in forever. Lots of comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash in the YT comments Figure this should appeal to some here....           “Troika“, combining the immense talents of Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train), Neal Morse (Transatlantic) and Ross Jennings (Haken), initially began with Morse writing some acoustic songs he thought would be enhanced by strong vocal harmonies. After reuniting with former Spock’s Beard bandmate Nick D’Virgilio, the duo specifically sought out Jennings to complete the trio (all of whom contributed material to the project). Recorded during lockdown, D’VIRGILIO, MORSE & JENNINGS delivers melodic acoustic-filled anthems, charged rockers and sensitive ballads – all part of the mix – and the unique blend of the three voices and styles have created an album in which you will encounter these musicians in a way you’ve never heard before. Are you a fan of acoustic rock from the ‘70s with a touch of classic rock thrown in? If so, you’re going to absolutely love ”Troika”. This mostly-acoustic rock offering spends the first half bathing you in Crosby, Stills, and Nash-like acoustic pop rock full of fabulous multi-part lead vocal harmonies while the second half throws in some Hendrix meets Styx meets Foreigner classic rock to up the attitude. It’s such a fine record that the masses need to hear, and while the super-group last name approach will work fine for prog rock diehards, it just doesn’t roll off the tongue for the people who will really enjoy this record the most – regular lovers of vocal harmony-rich classic rock. Heck, even calling the band Troika would have been simpler. This is one of those delightful albums that has soothing melodic wonders and ripping, ‘70s-vibe classic rock tunes, and there truly isn’t a weak link in the 12-song collection. If you’re one of those people complaining that they just aren’t making great rock albums like they used to, you’ll want to grab a copy of this CD as soon as it’s released. Highly Recommended   01 – Everything I Am 02 – Julia 03 – You Set My Soul on Fire 04 – One Time Less 05 – Another Trip Around the Sun 06 – A Change Is Gonna Come 07 – If I Could 08 – King for a Day 09 – Second Hand Sons 10 – My Guardian 11 – What You Leave Behind 12 – Julia (Alternative Version) [Bonus Track] Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train) – vocals, drums Neal Morse (Transatlantic) vocals, keys, bass, guitars Ross Jennings (Haken) vocals, guitar
    • "Down to the Devil" is quite catchy. Shame this is only available on VINYL and as a digital download as far as I can tell... 
    • Sad isn't it. Listened to Sultans last night. That was so good.  This still sounds like 1 endless song with different words. A travesty and a waste.
    • The Needle Lies-Queensryche
    • Yeah such a mark up from them on certain things recently...the Devils Train & Madhouse cds where up in the region too...unreal   it cost £15odd direct from record company...with VAT & postage.
    • I pretty much love everything they release. Heavyharmonies samples of the rest of the album sound great, too.
