  1. Filter
    With Rat A Tat Tat, there's plenty of unforgettable melodies to make this his strongest and most accessible work to date. [Winter 2010, p.96]
  2. Most of Rat A Tat Tat strives for genuineness, pop, and wry wisdom, and absolutely does better than the average record attempting it.
  3. Under The Radar
    His appeal grows over the course of Rat A tat Tat, each track feeling more and more like a conversation, a conversation set to an excellent groove. [Winter 2010, p.62]
  4. Taken as a whole, Rat a Tat Tat is the sound of a confident and laid-back artist wallowing in homespun delight. The album is all self-possessed abandon, getting its kicks and sidling away under the dim glow of streetlights.
  5. Few songs from either record match the bombast of his work with Broken Social Scene, perhaps, but Collett’s albums are better viewed as part of a whole, and Rat A Tat Tat strengthens the country-fried side of his solo personality.
  6. He manages to allude heavily to other artists without losing his own idiosyncrasies. Chief among them is his syncopated jive-cadence delivery.
  7. Alternative Press
    It's not for a lack of experimentation on Collet's part that Rat foregoes any sort of bar raing. It's still a solid forging of '70s-rock gruff. [Apr 2010, p.122]
