Tell the World: The Very Best of Ratt is a career-spanning compilation album featuring twenty tracks from all seven of Ratt's albums, including their quartet of consecutive platinum LPs from the mid-to-late-'80s: Out of the Cellar, Invasion of Your Privacy, Dancing Undercover and Reach for the Sky, plus their 1990 album Detonator and their self titled 1999 album. Ironically, the title track for this compilation ("Tell the World"), which originally appeared on the band's self-titled debut EP, is not actually included.

Critical reception[edit]

Though the compilation sold well and had good reviews, the album has been criticized as missing more hits from Ratt, such as "You Think You're Tough" and "Givin' Yourself Away".[1]
