...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.
