Customer Reviews

It was exciting to have the band back together. The music fell way short though!!

I had bought this CD when it first came out. Back then, when you got excited about a new album, you bought it and listened to it over and over. This album fell way short of a Dokken album. Most of the songs on this album are small ideas that just repeat themselves within each song - they don't go anywhere. The songs are hollow. Not Much feeling. Where is the amazing George Lynch guitar work? Where are the great guitar solos? I don't know what the song writting process was for Dokken back in the 80's, but this time around did not click or aspire to any great songs. Too Bad. I used to like Dokken. I like the song: The Maze. That's about it sorry to say. The production and sound clarity is very good. --The Live acoustic album that came out also in 1995 was good though.

Last Good Dokken Album

The first of their reunion was the last good album they ever did. While George Lych may have left after the making of Shadow Life, it sounds like he left before it. Even Don's solo album sounded better than the Dokken albums after Dysfunctional. Get this one, it's the last good one. Everything made afterward sounds very generic to my ears.

It show's growth, but this is where Dokken peeked!

OK, remember this was a band from the 80’s when it was all about the long hair, make-up, tight clothing & high pitch vocals…and that was just the guys? The 80’s hair band were all about that and who could play the fastest guitar solos. The band never sounded tighter and the music is very good on this CD. The biggest problem is that Don Dokken is a one-dimensional singer, good songwriter, but not that good on vocals (even for an 80’s band). I however really like most of this CD. “Too High to Fly” & “Shadows of Life” are worthy of the Metal Gods. The Greg Howe remake of “From the Beginning” is a really good remake of the original, worth checking out. George Lynch, Jeff Pilson & Mick Brown should have found another (better) lead vocalist to record music with, but they didn’t and the rest is history. After this CD the band it rock bottom, which they remain, with bands like Winger & Poison.


Formed: 1978 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

At a time when the charts were ruled by pop-metal acts, Dokken was a major attraction throughout the 1980s. With vocalist Don Dokken's captivating stage presence and guitarist George Lynch's high-energy style, the band combined rockers such as "Kiss of Death" and power ballads such as "Alone Again" in order to create a number of best-selling albums. Dokken's roots date back to the late '70s, when Lynch, along with drummer Mick Brown, teamed up with Don Dokken to form the Boyz. In 1981, Don moved...
