"Four on the Floor" (Shock Records/Vanity Music Group; 2022)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Rat Rod's "Four on the Floor" is a delightfully trashy rock'n'roll album that's all the more fun for it. It starts out sounding like "Little Miss Dangerous"-era Ted Nugent ("Cars, Guitars and Rock'n'roll.) and then morphs into a Bon Scott-era AC/DC sound on "All or Nothin'" and then, as the album progresses, we get flashes of Sunet Strip hair bands and a lot of tracks that remind me of Krokus (which is good; I like Krokus).

I really enjoyed listening to this album from start to finish. You know why? Because it's fun! And there's not enough fun in rock'n'roll these days. Like Heath Ledger's Joker said: "Why so serious?" Hell, yeah, Rat Rod. You keep on having fun!

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
