That's a good song. Good rhythm/verse fine chorus up until the phantom "hear me callings" and a tasty solo.

 

Should have changed up the chorus. It overall better than I expected.

I don't mind it either. Not amazing, not bad. Something I could enjoy enough.

I like it. Pretty simple, but quality Pearcy / Ratt styled tune.

Been enjoying the new Pearcy tunes.....makes me look forward to the new Ratt stuff, too!

Three for three for me. Like everything I've heard so far and look forward to picking this one up. Nice Ratt riff and no mistaking who is on vocals. Uninspired? Not even close. Maybe slightly subdued but after all the wear and tear through the years no one can reasonably expect the pipes to sound identical to their debut. My 45 year old legs aren't logging a 4.5 40 time these days either. Hell, even Steve-O from Jackass has mellowed with age.

For sure the closest he has come to putting out a solo album that sounds like a Ratt album. I like it.

Yeah, everything about this is just sounding very good. Just like a new Ratt release to me.

Here's how it panned out for me - not bad, but a way off classic Ratt

 

1. I Know Im Crazy - 6.5

2. Ten Miles Wide - 7.5

3. Shut Down Baby - 5.5

4. Dead Roses - 5

5. Lollipop - 5.5

6. Hit me with a Bullet - 7

7. Rain - 8

8. Want Too Much - 7

9. What do ya Think - 5.75

10. Jamie - 8

11. I Can't Take It - 7.75

12. Passion Infinity - 6.75

13. Summers End - 5.5

 

'Rain' and 'Jamie' were the closest to classic Ratt, and were quite nice.

I'm not far off that at all actually. There's a nice EP in this album, for sure, but overall the album is poor. I am not sure why artists fill their albums with 13 songs when it must be as obvious to them as everyone else that some songs are lazy and should be left off.

 

But there is some cool stuff on here and obviously all the stuff that sounds like Ratt rates best. A couple of 'Round and round' riffs thrown into the mix on two songs on this album, that I counted. So yeah, it's okay, but I'd have preferred an EP of the songs in bold;

 

1 . I Know I'm Crazy - 5.00
2 . Ten Miles Wide - 8.00
3 . Shut Down Baby - 5.00
4 . Dead Roses - 6.00
5 . Lollipop - 6.50
6 . Hit Me with a Bullet - 6.00
7 . Rain - 8.25
8 . Want Too Much - 7.75
9 . What Do Ya Think - 3.00
10 . Jamie - 8.00
11 . I Can't Take It (2017) - 8.00
12 . Passion Infinity - 7.75
13 . Summers End - 5.00
Total - 65%

Ha, yeah, we definitely seem to be on a similar page - same songs rated well and all.

 

And Lindsay, I do very much like the good songs. 'Rain' is especially really cool. There is good stuff on here, but jeez there is a lot of filler too.

 

And sadly, especially on the album opener, when the song isn't good, Pearcy also sounds pretty bad at times. He is who he is and we all know and accept his voice. But there's a few times on this album when even for the die-hard you have to admit he's not quite where he used to be.

 

Anyway... the overall album scores poorly, but I'm not going to deny there are good songs on here.

Agreed! The good songs (the ones closest to RATT) are very good. It's just has some really bad songs too. It would make a pretty good 6 song EP if you cut the crap.
