Remastered with 5 bonus tracks (two studio and three live). 'Rats' is the third studio album from the Canadian singer/songwriter and was released in March '94 and features Stevie Salas on guitars.

Sass Jordan's third album continues in the vein begun on Racine; this is roots rock with teeth.

"High Road Easy" received considerable radio airplay, and the other rockers on the album are similar-catchy with an edge, showcasing Jordan's gut-deep voice.

As on Racine, the up-tempo stuff works the best: "Damaged", "High Road Easy", "Ugly" (featuring a guest appearance from George Clinton), "Honey", and "Wish".

Of the slower songs, "I'm Not" and "Give" are excellent - Jordan's got way more attitude and a much stronger voice than most singer-songwriters, and both are shown to their best advantage on 'Rats'.
