First off let me start by saying this isn't your dad's Dokken, but what it is is a slice of Hard Rock that will satisfy most Dokken fans, no it's not their best effort but it is darn good. Much improved over 2002's Long Way Home. There are some really classic "Rockin' With Dokken" tunes on here, The Last Goodbye & Don't Bring Me Down are soon to be classic tunes. While Escape (the first single) shows a mature Dokken stretching out. My personal favorite on the disc is Prozac Nation, you won't find a more hook laden song on the disc, this I hope gets released as a single. On board this time around is Jon Levin on guitar who caters to the Lynch crowd with riffs & squeals all over the album and brings back fond memories of the 80's at it's best. Bassist Barry Sparks returns for album #2, and holds the bottom end down & shows why he is thought of as a master on the bass. Of course Don & Mick are still supplying the foundation for Dokken as the orginal members. Don's performance is awesome on the disc, his vocals sound stronger then ever & with Barry & Mick doin some backgrounds with him, you actually get some really tight & sweet harmonies. This album is what should have followed 95's reunion special Dysfunctional or at least would have been a better follow up to Erase The Slate. Overall an album not to be missed.
