A high water mark in hair metal,

This review is from: LYNCH MOB-WICKED SENSATION (Audio CD)
Whilst I've never been a huge fan of guitarist George Lynch's day job, Dokken, his debut solo band album is one of the best albums within the late 80s/early 90s hair metal genre.
With a harder edge than the more pop-orientated bands like Bon Jovi, Lynch Mob still manage to deliver a set of songs that are very easy on the ear, combining great hooks with cracking riffs. For those of you needing a comparison, I'd say it combines the riffage of early Skid Row with the vocal melodies of The Cult.
It's definitely an album of its time - heavy on guitar, throwaway lyrics that would be banned on grunge/altenative albums - but ultimately, it's a highly enjoyable album that, for me, is in a higher class than much of the output in that era.
Listen and enjoy!
