I'm not a nice boy - and I never was! So sings Angry Anderson, not knowing that he would later sing the love theme in Neighbours! This album contains all the songs - from Rock 'n' Roll Outlaw to Astra Wally - that appear on their excellent eponymous debut album. This review is inspired by my original (vinyl) copy of that album. Any album which inspired a cover of one of its songs by Guns 'n' Roses can't be bad. That's what happened with 'Nice Boys', covered by G 'n' R' on 'Lies'. Listen to the first three tracks: Rock 'n' Roll Outlaws, the aforementioned 'Nice Boys' and 'The Butcher and Fast Eddie' and I defy you to say that this is not already shaping up to be one of the best - and rawest - rock albums you've heard. And there's much more to come.

Pure beautiful,brutal,edgy rock'n'roll.

A classic slice of unadulterated musical aural pleasure.

This is on a par with AC/DC Back in Black.

Hard rock at it's best 30 Sep 2002
By Michael Duthie - Published on Amazon.com
I've seen Rose Tattoo play live about 10 times. The first time was at a place called Bombay Rock in Melbourne. The band played flat-out for 50 minutes before their singer Angry Anderson collapsed, was carried off by roadies and failed to reappear. The intensity of their early live shows was only ever matched by their first album. Line-up changes conspired to rob the band of it's soul and in the end Angry was leading a bunch of anonymous wannabes.
This CD is really something to behold. I have yet to hear any band come close for sheer power. Astra Wally ( the story of a suburban heroin dealer) is the standout, closely followed by the singles Bad Boy For Love and One of the Boys. The band also showed it could be effective when they put the brakes on (TV) and the Butcher and Fast Eddy also has been regarded as a classic tale of suburban street gang rivalry.
The bonus tracks show you where the band went wrong...
For thise who like AC-DC, Guns'n'Roses and the like do yourselves a big favour and check it out.

An Unrecognised Classic 4 Jun 2000
By Mark A McGrath - Published on Amazon.com
If there is any album from Australian Rock 'n' Roll (not pop) that can stand alongside AC/DC's 70's classic TNT (only released in Australia - Jailbreak '74 was a combo of their first 2 albums; High Voltage & TNT) then this self titled debut album is it.
From the first track to the last this album assaults the senses with a ferocity even more threatening at times than AC/DC. What made 'the Tatts' such an awesome band to see live was that their anger was real (along with their tattoos - who else was sporting tatts in the 70's?) and their delivery was ruthlessly precise. They were mean and they meant it! They weren't just aggro rockers though, they were razor sharp musos who could deliver the goods live big time like hardly any other band around.
Nearly every song on this album is regarded by Tatts fans as a classic...lead throat Angry Anderson howls and growls over the top of impossibly loud and hard guitars that are driven by a relentless rhythm section operating on a 12 bar blues 4/4 time format. Add to this Peter Wells' snarling, stinging slide guitar and you've got a truly unique sound, something like Chuck Berry being mugged by AC/DC & ZZ Top on speed.
Putting the song writing genius of Anderson, Wells & Cocks to one side, much of the credit for this album goes to its producers, Harry Vanda & George Young, the same producers of AC/DC who rode a wave of success during this period writing and producing hits ranging from glam powerpop to hard rock. The production of this album is faultless; power chords that flash ontop of a wall of sound that's underpinned by a smooth and fat bottom end.
During the late 70's & early 80's Rose Tattoo were regarded as the most powerful live acts in the Oz Rock business and to this day now have legendary status in Australia, England and several European countries like Germany where they pulled off a successful reunion tour last year.
Legend has it that Angus Young and Bon Scott from AC/DC used to get up on stage with the Tatts at a now legendary and long gone live joint called 'The Bondi Lifesaver' in Sydney and do Chuck Berry and The Kinks numbers (a lot differently mind you). One night they dragged brother George and partner Harry down to see this unsigned act. George & Harry was mightily impressed and virtually signed them up on the spot. The rest is history.
Rose Tattoo are one of the best kept secrets of Rock 'n' Roll - it was a privelidge to experience them live, and this album is a testament to their greatness.

This album has gone down as a true rock n roll classik! From the opening cut of 'Rock N Roll Outlaw' to the bluesy 'The Butcher and Fast Eddy' this CD will have you screaming for more. Back in the days of record albums, the first side (or first 5 cuts of the CD) may be considered to be called the best album side album.
The best tracks on the album (as if there are any bad tracks) are 'Rock N Roll Outlaw', 'Nice Boys', 'One of the Boys', 'Remedy'.. well damn the whole CD is awesome.
As Angry Anderson has told me, 'The Butcher and Fast Eddy' is a true story about a gang fight that took place in Melborne Austrailia. After this album was released, it was rumored that Angry Anderson was in fact 'The Butcher', although he denies it.
Buy this CLASSIK CD, hear some fantastic hard rock, learn some Australian Folklore, and understand why the Aussies have put out some of the best hard rock ever.

Cool slide guitar hard rock! 30 May 2005
By Motleymental - Published on Amazon.com
Rose Tattoo is one of those forgotten bands that should be more appreciated than they actually are. This album rocks, period. Angry Anderson is singing like no one. Similarities with fellows Aussie rockers AC/DC are quite recognizable: they have the same sense of rhythm, and this album has been produced by Vanda & Young, who also produced the 5 first AC/DC albums (prior to Highway To Hell). This is Tattoo's first album (out in 1978), and probably the best. The major difference with AC/DC is the voice: Anderson and Scott may be coming from similar background, they don't have same depth in their voice. Anderson's voice is more gravelly, more... angry. The slide guitar is also another thing that makes their sound unique. It is almost on every song, every solos are on slide guitar. So cool... I recommand this album to every proud hard rock aficionados.

Standing in the Shadows of Giants 26 Jun 2001
By Azmodi - Published on Amazon.com
Rose Tatto are a hard rock band from Australia and thus comparisons to the great AC/DC are inevitable. Let me get them out of the way: Rose Tattoo is no AC/DC. This aside, however, they are a good hard rock band and this is a good album with excellent, very raw production from Vanda & Young (sound familiar?). "Nice Boys" is pretty much a perfect rock song, the best on the record. Other stand-outs include "Astra Wally" and "Remedy." There are also eight bonus tracks, four being live, which vary in quality. Check out Rose Tattoo if you like your hard rock with a slight punk inflection, just don't expect another "Thunder from Down Under."
