Product Description

Product Description

This 1990 debut solo offering from Don Dokken is perhaps the softest, most middle-of-the-road collection in the singer's long melodic rock career. Fans of '80s hair metal certainly count the band that carried Dokken's name as one of the premier outfits of the decade. But when their guitar-slinging histrionics, sad-faced ballads, and colorful outfits became highly unfashionable, the group couldn't sustain themselves through the constant fighting between the singer and guitarist George Lynch. The on-again off-again relationship was off for five years during the early '90s. Lynch made some noise with his own band, Lynch Mob (proving that he could write decent songs without the help of Dokken), and Dokken released Up from the Ashes, a collection of near-balladry. Joining the vocalist on this disc are guitarist/songwriter John Norum (most notable for his work with Europe), guitarist the Billy White, bassist Peter Baltes, and drummer Mickey Dee. The record is well-produced, and the performances (especially Norum's soloing) are quite polished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely brilliant 10 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
This record does lack some of the raw power of Dokken's earlier work, but that isn't to say that it doesn't rock, and 'The Hunger' is up there with 'Till The Livin End'. It sounds like Dokken, but a more mature Dokken, which is a very good thing. The song writing is far superior to that on earlier Dokken CDs, where exceptional cuts were mixed with average material. Not one dud here. That is what really makes this CD; consistently excellent songs. The production is also very good, the best of all the Dokken CDs, every instrument is clear and well balanced. The guitar work, while in general not as raw, is stunning. Brilliant riffs and solos just keep on coming throughout the record. Billy White and John Norum do a very good job of bringing their own signatures, whilst keeping the Dokken vibe. These two can shred with Lynch, but arguably they both write better constructed solos. My only gripe is that the opening riff to Crash and Burn is one of the best I've ever heard, and it disappears after the intro. Still if that's all I can find to complain about... I have all of Dokken's 80s work, and this is probably the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars From the ashes of Dokken... 10 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
...Don does well, mainly not to stumble without Lynch, Pilson and Brown. The more-than-capable Norum fills Lynch's mammoth gap, if not exactly effortlessly. Whilst slightly lacking in the shredding department, Dokken does on this release what he does best- churns out great melodies. That's not to say this is a Dokken 'The band'-style classic; it is a rehash of the old formula to an extent, and doesn't deviate from the Dokken template (Dysfunctional's reunion of sorts is a more apt progression). However, this grower sure has some fist-pumping belters, notably 1000 Miles, When Some Nights, Mirror Mirror, and the excellent Living A Lie. A great slice of hard-rocking cheese.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don shows there's life after Dokken 13 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
Dokken were one of those big US 80's rock bands that sold mega units in the States but went completely under the radar on these shores (see also Ratt, White Lion). Whilst arguably more musically gifted and certainly a better band than the likes of Motley Crue and Poison, they perhaps weren't deemed as marketable to a UK audience and so went largely unknown. Which is a shame as their back catalogue is strong and their career high Back for the Attack (1987) is one of the best albums in the genre. Anyway, not long after that was released the band imploded (due principally to irresolvable tensions between lead singer Don Dokken and guitarist George Lynch) and Dokken and Lynch both undertook solo projects. Dokken's reputation allowed him to assemble a top notch cast of musicians: John Norum (Europe) as one half of a stellar guitar duo, Accept's Peter Baltes on bass and a drummer (Mikkey Dee) who would go on to enjoy a lengthy career with Motorhead. They were joined by a comparatively unknown `kid' from Texas called Billy White who Dokken had heard some tapes of which had by all accounts `blown him away'. White completed the guitar line up.

There was a lot of competition between Dokken and Lynch back in the day and they would both have been eager to make the better record. Listening to the first two tracks here, you would say Lynch wins hands down (without even having listened to his effort) as they are instantly forgettable: none of the catchy melodies and sculpted production that you'd associate with a `Dokken' album. Then something happens, and that something is the third track When Some Nights. It's as if you're transported to a hot West Coast summer's day, driving along the interstate with the soft top down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don Dokken tries to go it alone 10 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
Don Dokken obviously decided it was time to put out a solo album riding on the bands success. There is nothing really bad on this album but nothing outstanding either. It opens with Crash 'n Burn, a good intro but fails to keep the momentum up. John Norum's guitar work is ok but again it sounds like he's just going through the motions. Most of the songs ( as usual ) are to do with 'love' lost or found or holding on to it. There is nothing here to compare with Kiss of Death or Into the Fire, if he was trying to get away from the Dokken sound, he didn't,it's just an inferior version. Good in it's own right as a solo album but could have been so much better.
