Sorry about last time... I don't know what I did wrong....

I'll try again!!

Dokken has had so many great albums!! And they are coming out with another one this year!! It is called..."When Lightning Strikes Again". I can't wait!!

 

What is your favorite Dokken album?

My favorite is "Under Lock & Key"

 

What's yours?

'Back for the attack'... closely followed by the excellent 'Under lock and key' and 'Tooth and nail'.

Oh, sure, wait until I post in the other Dokken thread, then decide to put up a proper poll. You bastid!! I don't know how much more of this taunting I can take... :doh:

 

My post in the other thread contained a joke about loving "Dysfunctional" and "Shadowlife," but it doesn't bear repeating, so I'll just go on record as saying my favorite album is "Back for the Attack," followed by "Erase the Slate." I also like about half the songs on "Under Lock and Key," but the album as a whole is sort of patchy, at least to these ears. "Hell to Pay" was also OK, though nothing to cream your pants over.

 

By the way, I've heard a few snippets from their new album, and my musical libido didn't so much as twitch. Somebody bring in a fluffer...

Back For The Attack for me...

ULAK :banger:

:lol: I opened up this thread, saw that reply and thought 'Shit, I accidentally opened one of the 'What album or track' threads at the moment.' Then, 14mins later, my brain kicked into gear and I cracked the code.

Dysfunctional?? Really?? I bought that when it came out, but, honestly, it didn't do much for Me.. Maybe I better give it another spin sometime soon.....

Yea, really! It took a while for it to sink in though. I bought it when it first came out, listened to it two or three times, and thought "ehhh, it's OK," and put it on the shelf. Didn't listen to it for over a year but then I got the ONE LIVE NIGHT "unplugged" disc and was very impressed with the live version of "The Maze" from DYSFUNCTIONAL on there, which prompted me to give the original some more spins. I wound up enjoying the rest of the album too, nowadays I reach for DYSFUNCTIONAL more often than I do most of the other Dokken discs on my shelf.

'Dysfunctional' is a definite grower. Good album. Backed.

double backed.

 

I chose "Back For The Attack" though. :banger:

Back For the Attack :banger:

 

Followed by Tooth & Nail, and Erase the Slate :banger:

 

*Dysfunctional is a very underrated release; "Lesser of Two Evils" is one of my all-time fave Dokken songs, and "Too High To Fly" kicks some serious ass as well.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?
