Reach for the Sky is Ratt's fourth full length album. Though it sold well enough to achieve Platinum sales status and spawned the popular "I Want a Woman" and "Way Cool Jr.", it was not enough to keep the band on the road for longer than seven months, as a result, "What's It Gonna Be", not released as a single, was used as a B-Side to "Lovin' You's a Dirty Job", the first single from their next release Detonator, in the hopes that people will go back and take a second look at Reach for the Sky.
This album has also marked the last Ratt album to be produced by Beau Hill. The band originally intended for the album to be produced entirely by Mike "Clay" Stone, but Stone's abysmal producing of the album, from the DAT tape recordings, prompted Atlantic Records to bring in Beau Hill to assist Stone and salvage the album.
