Don Dokken tries to go it alone,
This review is from: Up From The Ashes (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.
