iTunes Review

Even though this “greatest hits” collection features re-recordings that the recent Dokken lineup made of the classic band’s big songs, the effort turns out surprisingly well. Admittedly, guitarist George Lynch was an integral part of these songs, but his replacement (Jon Levin) is so good that you never feel like anything is missing. Don Dokken’s voice doesn’t have the operatic push it did in 1987, but he brings to these songs a newfound weathered experience that serves to deepen them. While some of the tunes might lack the spark of the original performances, there is no doubt that the production has been improved. The boxy, echoing style of late-‘80's metal is replaced here by a meaty guitar sound, and a fat, full-bodied instrumental blend. Amazingly, “Alone Again,” “Dream Warriors” and “Unchain the Night” retain the atmosphere of the originals without sacrificing the heavy charge of modern production. “Re-recorded” is a phrase that will make any longtime fan cringe, but Dokken fans shouldn’t worry so much. These tracks aren't so much remade as they are renewed.

Why?

Ya know i love Dokken and they have been at the top of my musical list from day one... But why re-record classic songs and ruin them?? Not happy at all with this greatest hits album....

Why not?!?!

Ok, so Don's not 25 anymore....and? So many bands have adapted to the changing voices of their frontmen over the years. It's just a fact of life. I'm just glad that they are still doing what they were born to do....rock. I do enjoy these updated versions of the Dokken classics. You will enjoy a very nice production upgrade of what you are used to. Yes, Don sings lower but, who cares. I love hearing Don apply his craft regardless of the project or lineup. Very satisfied! I don't think Dokken fans will be disappointed. These songs are true to the originals with the afforementioned production upgrade. Very nice.

Why Baby Why?

At a time when the charts were ruled by pop-metal acts, Dokken was a major attraction throughout the 1980s.

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...
