    A definitive collection of Dokken Metal hits!

    Posted
    Fiend

    If you are looking for the complete greatest hits package of Dokken, you have found it. "The Very Best Of Dokken" includes the best tracks from the very first album "Breaking The Chains up to the 1995 release "Dysfunctional". Dokken is still in the Hard Rock/Metal forefront to this day, providing us with more great current Metal. "Breaking The Chains" showcases the first bassist for Dokken, Juan Croucier, who later joined Ratt. Bassist Jeff Pilson joins on with Dokken with the album "Tooth And Nail", which spawned the great tunes "Into The Fire", "Just Got Lucky" and "Alone Again". I always liked the way Dokken presented ballads. The Metal edginess always lingers throughout all Dokken ballads, "Alone Again" is a perfect example. "Dream Warriors" really rocks, it was part of the soundtrack for "A Nightmare On Elm Street 3" and found on the "Back For The Attack" album. You will also hear "Mirror Mirror" from Don Dokken's solo album "Up From The Ashes", released in 1990. Mikkey Dee plays drums and John Norum plays guitar on "Mirror Mirror". "Mr. Scary" is a powerhouse instrumental played by George Lynch on lead guitar. George Lynch flexes his Heavy Metal muscle here, showcasing why he had become such an influential guitarist and exploits his uncanny talent. George Lynch has since been nicknamed "Mr. Scary" because of this historical Metal instrumental moment. Don Dokken on vocals is sensational, he can sing the heavy stuff along with ballads effortlessly, I have always considered his voice flawless. To sum up this album, you will no doubt enjoy the way in which Dokken incorporated vocal harmonies, melodies, searing solo's, riffs and leads and melting them together to create some of the most fantastic Heavy Metal the 1980's had to offer. Dokken as featured here: Don Dokken (vocals), George Lynch (guitar), Jeff Pilson (bass & keyboards) and Mick Brown (drums). The liner notes are heavy duty, with 16 pages of Dokken history, band photos, and tons of album credits. I heavily recommend "The Very Best Of Dokken" to any and all Hard Rock and Heavy Metal fans worldwide!

    Dokken was a solid, if not overly famous, band that didn't get a lot of normal FM radio airplay, but lives on through XM radio. All of their big hits are here, as well as some other good songs. This cd is a great chance to get familiar with the band if you haven't already done so-their fans will already have these songs, so for them, it would just be a convenient way to have everything on 1 disc.

    This quartet probably had more tension with its members than any hair metal band, but there are some excellent 80's tracks on here that bring back memories. It was worth the buy at $5.99 to hear those hits again.
