Alone Again and Other Hitsby Dokken
For a band that only released four studio albums during their '80s heyday, Dokken sure has enough compilations on the marketplace. If it's a budget-priced collection you're looking for as a sampler of their '80s output (which is by far their best era), then Rhino's Alone Again and Other Hits covers most of the bases. Equally at home with anthemic arena rockers ("Breaking the Chains," "In My Dreams," and "Dream Warriors," the latter of which was the theme song for one of the Nightmare on Elm Street movies) and syrupy power ballads ("Alone Again," "Slippin' Away"), there was also the rare instance when the band combined the two styles ("Heaven Sent"). But by no means is this a definitive collection, as such MTV favs as "Burning Like a Flame" are absent, as are such fan favorites as "Kiss of Death," "Tooth and Nail," and the George Lynch six-string showcase, "Mr. Scary." But the meat and potatoes of the Dokken catalog is here, and you can't argue with its affordable price.

Don Dokken and crew are back and for a budget. This album included all of my long time favorites, Dream Warriors, Just Got Lucky, Alone Again and even interduced me to more of their tracks that I did not know. But after listening to this album, I found that all the songs included were quality and worth having. Great for the casual 80's hard rock collector.
