I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST THEY EVER DID-ALL THE LEAD GUITAR WAS DONE BY WARREN ON THIS ONE FOR SOME REASON- GREAT SONGS- DRIVE ME CRAZY-7TH AVE- ARE A FEW THIS IS A MUST FOR RATT N ROLLERS

From: T-BONE Date: August 18, 2001 at 12:13
Good cd, but the songs started getting too commercial. I think they were trying to be too radio friendly. Got some good songs, but the first 3 were still better. I gave it a 7.5

From: richierocker Date: May 19, 2002 at 16:12
I agree with T-Bone, the songs did sound to commercial, but I loved the album Slip of the Lip is such a pure balls to the wall songs dripping with machoism. Crank this album, it rocks

From: Andre Date: July 17, 2002 at 15:20
My second favourite Ratt album.Circa 86 they became really big playing huge venues like Square Garden NYC.It features my favourite Ratt song `Bodytalk`a fast mid-tempo song.It`s a hard rocking album.Difficult to get tired of it.Great chorus,Robin`s riffs (RIP)awsome.Blotzer`stumps on the music.Croucier gives the groove that hard riffing needs.He and Bobby make the perfect team.The fancy arrengements and solos by Warren melts like butter and also makes the difference.Their last effort SUCKS!!!!

From: Andre Tekken Date: July 23, 2002 at 10:13
Again and again this stupid webmaster insist that this band sould be in Glam category instead of hard rock!! Hey who hired this dude!!!

From: Desert Rat Date: August 31, 2002 at 19:48
This has got to be the most solid Ratt album, with Invasion Of Your Privacy a close second. Rocks from start to finish and never lets up. Yes it's radio friendly but that isn't always a bad thing. Not a bad moment here.

From: nitrodoll Date: September 2, 2002 at 12:00
also a classic ratt album, if i could only recommend one ratt album to anyone who don't know them, i wouldn't know which one to pick (or maybe their ratt n roll compilation)...great cd... one of my first compact discs... ratt n roll forever nitrodoll1974@hotmail.com

From: Baris Date: September 10, 2002 at 8:10
The last 'true and good rockin'' Ratt album. Although the songs smell commercial, in fact they are nice and catchy. 'Slip Of The Lip' is so hot. One of the Ratt records that I totally like.

From: J.C. Date: November 2, 2002 at 9:20
I think that anyone who is a fan of Ratt's music would agree that 'Dancing undercover' is a heavymetal masterpiece.'out of the cellar' was a great record too,but i think 'dancing undercover'kicks even more ass.With songs like 'drive me crazy','slip of the lip','body talk' and the title track(just to name a few)you know this album smokes!

From: Brian Date: December 13, 2002 at 22:28
My favorite Ratt album.Great driving music ,especially Dance,Drive Me Crazy and Bodytalk.9 out of 10.

From: ALEX ZAMBRANO Date: March 12, 2003 at 14:36
THE BEST ALBUM OF HARD ROCK ,MY INSPIRATION TO LIVE IN THIS WORLD

From: Gar Date: April 4, 2003 at 7:32
Well... my opinion of this album isn't as high. There are a few good songs on this, but there's not much else going for it. Legend has it that the album was complete until they realized that there was no potential 'hit song' on it. So producer Beau Hill had to write one for them. That song was 'Dance' and it ended up being the biggest song on the album. Not a complete waste, but definitely the weakest RATT album of the 80's.

From: Dusty Date: July 14, 2003 at 14:37
Dance, bodytalk and looking for love are great songs, but the album is not as good as invasion of your privacy, it's just more of the same.

From: King James Date: July 14, 2003 at 20:50
Dusty is right. Invasion of Your Privacy was probably Ratt's best album altogether. They're all good, though. Ratt is one of the best heavy metal bands ever!

From: Dusty Date: July 17, 2003 at 13:18
Ratt is one of the best indeed!

From: RR-Finland Date: August 28, 2003 at 10:14
Ratt is still going strong with this album. Body Talk, Looking For Love... Commercial or not, I like it!

From: Kristian Date: January 29, 2004 at 15:17
Body Talk aren't on my copy, it's listed on the cover, but the actual disc only contains 9 songs. Does anyone know anything about this?

Sounds like you got ripped off. Let me know, I'll send you an MP3. Contact me thru the message board.

From: Blue Tequila Date: January 31, 2004 at 13:16
This is to Kristian--I just put in my copy of Dancing Undercover and Slip of the Lip and Body Talk show up as 1 song thats 7:04 long so it looks like there are only 9 songs. Thats when I'm playing it in Winamp. And in Windows Media Player it shows Slip of the Lip as 1 song thats 7:04 and lists Body Talk as the next track but it's actually Looking for Love and again Slip of the Lip and Body Talk are combined as 1 song. Very weird but chances are the song is on there. Hope that helps!

From: Jack Date: April 26, 2004 at 5:56
IN MY OPINION, A BIT HEAVIER THAN THE PREVIOUS ALBUM. THE PREVIOUS ALBUM IS A BIT BETTER THAN THIS ONE.

From: charvel man Date: May 17, 2004 at 18:16
This album has a sound to it like they just threw down the songs in a week or something. I usally just listen to certain songs off this one. I give this record 2 *'s very average.

From: jack Date: July 26, 2004 at 4:31
the same goes with me,charvel man! WHICH CERTAIN SONGS YOU USUALLY LISTEN TO? Mine is dance,one good lover,body talk,looking for love and the last song in this album.

From: Geoff Date: September 21, 2004 at 18:27
'Dance' and 'Looking for love' are my faves here but this is just another slab of great riff driven hard rock - what you'd expect from Ratt. Consistent, great stuff!

From: Metalhead Date: September 22, 2004 at 17:27
Just discovered that Robin Crosby was a better lead guitarist than Warren. He did the solos on Drive Me Crazy and Looking For Love. More melodic and crazy. DeMartini never wandered into different territories in his solos, always does the same thing.

From: DefLeppard8192 Date: November 16, 2004 at 10:19
Too commercial, are you insane, commercialism is what makes a good record, take Pyromania by Def Leppard, totally commercial compare too High n dry, ad then Hysteria, PERFECTION!! the more commercial the better, as long as we're talking about Metal bands. Ratt is not glam, and Def Leppard is not just hard rock, they are both melodic metal, they are certainly better than Mettallica. The best songs here are Dance, Slip of the Lip, and Body Talk.

From: Propane Date: November 30, 2004 at 23:06
What's this 'Glam' crap?! These guys are hard rock! Leave it to someone who is in charge to get it wrong, just like when these bands were filling arenas and music companies were mislabeling them. I liked this one as well as the others. Nice job.

From: VinceK81 Date: November 17, 2005 at 16:22
As a true RATT fan ( I have the 'R' design from the insert of 'Reach for the Sky' tattooed on my back!) I might just have to go and say that this may be the finest album in the Rattalog. As killer as the older hits were/are, you can't deny the cleverness of 'One Good Lover' or 'Lookin' for Love'....then come's the hits off of 'Dancin'' a'la 'Slip..' , 'Dance' , 'Body Talk' , F.CKIN' KILLER! Pearcy and the boys let it out on this one, it's a must own, must study, must master. RIP IT UP!

From: davedropd Date: December 5, 2006 at 21:30
This is a weird record, because when it came out, I thought it sucked for the most part. but over the years, I have come to like it a ton. I love the guitars, Warrens playing perfectly matches that sleazy rasp of Stephen's. But in the same tokken, there are 4 songs on this that are not that great, with drive me crazy, and enough is enough, being the two worst, and that's a lot on a 10 song disc. Still no Ratt collection would be complete without this. So do some undercover dancing and get it!

From: Rycheage Date: August 26, 2007 at 10:17
Ratt started to get a bit sloppy here to appease mainstream radio and MTV. 'Body Talk' and 'Slip Of The Lip' are just OK but the rest seems like they were thrown together in a few days. Maybe the excesses of the road were starting to get to them at this point. 'Dancing Undercover' is an OK album, even 20 years later but not up to snuff for Ratt.

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 10:02
This was 3rd time lucky,another great one.

From: WookieEnthal Date: July 11, 2009 at 22:34
This is my favorite Ratt album hands down. Every song just hit home for me. This disc a good example of why you should actually have the liner notes in front of you and listen to it start to finish...it's like an adventure and that seems to be lost on the new generation of rock fans...one of the bad points of free downloading. Try it, you might just like it

From: JAYBONE Date: May 26, 2010 at 15:42
This was the first tape i ever bought. Yes i said tape lol. I suppose that dates me but oh well. Still my all time favorite band.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 13, 2011 at 21:16
Cool album by Ratt!!!...catchy Glam ...recommended for persons who like the commercial side of Glam..this band in that aspect kick a**es pretty good and as human beings are very nice too(had the chance to meet them in 1990 during their Detonator world tour in an autograph meet and greet at a record store in England)..."One Good Lover","Drive Me Crazy","Seventh Avenue" & "Enough Is Enough" are excellent tracks 4 sure...88/100...Glam it!!!

From: rockhardrock Date: February 7, 2011 at 15:21
not as good as their previous two records.but even tough, the band stayed true to their style-melodic hard n heavy double guitars attack. some songs here rocks, like: body talk, dance, dance, dance, enough is enough and take a chance. the rest is too simple for me and too repetitive. the song slip of the lip just showed the direction the band went to on their next two releases.

From: edwithmj Date: November 26, 2011 at 17:52
Another good one by Ratt. Starts off averagely with Dance and One Good Lover but quickly picks up with stand outs such as Drive Me Crazy, Slip of the Lip, Looking For Love, Seventh Avenue and Enough is Enough.

From: vanitybinge Date: January 9, 2013 at 19:49
My favorite RATT album, def the fastest guitars of all their albums.

From: hair metal again Date: September 3, 2013 at 2:00
this one is a classic and the mighty RATT get through the golden era of hard rock music with a fantastic release!as always the rhythm and lead guitars are astonishing ,Stephen s vocs unique and the songs powerfuland commercial!the only thing that s missing is a big ballad and maybe this was a mistake !the great Beau Hill in production is a guarantee of commercial bliss and "dance",'"slip of the lip","it doesnt matter","body talk" are the proof!essential!
