      Ratt's best album.

      "Detonator" is the 5th studio album by US glam rock band, Ratt. It was released in 1990 on Atlantic Records and produced by Desmond Child & Sir Arthur Payson. The line-up for the album was Stephen Pearcy (vocals), Warren DeMartini (guitar), Robbin Crosby (guitar), Juan Croucier (bass) and Bobby Blotzer (drums).

      "Intro Into Shame" is a 55 second intro played slowly on a detuned guitar which leads into "Shame Shame Shame". At the end of the first things begin to speed up a bit. Seconds into the second part of the song, the guitar is joined by drums and bass. The lyrics are about cheating.

      Stephen Pearcy's somewhat raspy voice gives "Lovin' You's a Dirty Job" an edgy, dirty sound pure glam rock naughtiness. The lyrics are, of course, all about innuendo. The music is heavy and impressive.

      Although it is one of the very few power ballads Ratt has ever performed, "Givin' Yourself Away" is still quite heavy. The lyrics are about a woman still in love with a man but denying her feelings, which could have made the song into a sappy love tune. However, Ratt managed to keep it from going down that route by making it just heavy enough to rock, while keeping it just mellow enough to still be a love song. They managed to find the fine line between the two and keep true to it.

      Anyone who loves glam music will appreciate this album. I'd recommend it for a glam fan who hasn't heard Ratt, or anyone looking to enjoy some true glam. In my opinion, it is their best album, hands down.
