Ram it Down is neither a terrible album nor a particularly fantastic one. It has some of the best songs of the band's 80's era, but also some of the blandest.rYou're pretty much better off nitpicking those 5 and forgetting the rest of the album. There's really not much of a point in jamming the whole thing, unless you're a diehard fan of this era, and of this album in particular.
It's a great album, with a great opener song (Ram It Down), altought Iy may sounds 'annoying' or 'cheesy' in the early. It turns out better at the end ("Blood Red Skies", "I'm A Rocker" and "Monsters Of Rock").
Extreme underrated! This record has is weak points sure but also has amazing songs like Ram It Down (probably the best solo duet ever made), Hard as Iron, Blood Red Skies or I'm a Rocker. One of my personal favourites.
