iTunes Review

Though it at first seems like just another portrait of a teased-hair rock band, the iconic cover image of Under Lock and Key actually says a lot about Dokken’s position among the hordes of hair metal acts competing for dominance in 1985. Like every metal band of the era, Dokken is shown with exquisitely gelled hairdos, posing among billows of fiery smoke, but they are also wearing brightly colored blazers. It’s a juxtaposition of hard rock tradition and pop fashion, which is precisely what’s represented in “Unchain the Night,” “In My Dreams” and “It’s Not Love.” The band kept abreast of the public’s taste for power ballads, but at their core Dokken was much more of a straight-ahead rock band than many of their hair metal contemporaries. Whether it was the rock-solid riffage of “Unchain the Night” or the pummeling assault of “Till the Livin’ End,” the band was always at its best when they were constructing slamming riffs.

Customer Reviews


My favorite Dokken release. Some hair bands actually had some good musical chops and this was definitely one of the best along with Motley Crue, Ratt, Skid Row, & Cinderella. Brings back some great memories. I'ts Not Love, one of their best. Also love Lightning Strikes Again, Unchain The Night, & Til The Livin End. I'ts all worth checking out.

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...
