Dokken's "Tooth and Nail" - an absolutely ESSENTIAL album for any fan of 80's metal/rock if you ask me. And another great album from '84....damn, that was a great year for rock & metal wasn't it?! So many great releases...

 

Anyway, now here's the tough part...what's your favorite song off of it?!

 

My favorite could change from time to time, but I'm gonna go with "Don't Close Your Eyes"! I just love the riff on that one!

Closely followed by; "Just Got Lucky", "Into the Fire" and "Alone Again".

 

Also in my opinion, this is one album that was "all killer and no filler"!

 

So, what do you think?

My answer would most likely change with my mood, but currently I'd say "Just got Lucky" would be my fave. When you're in the mood for something more "metallic" though, it's hard to beat the title track or "When Heaven Comes down". :banger:

Wow now that's a tough one but I went with DON'T CLOSE YOUR EYES although WHEN HEAVEN COMES DOWN comes in a close 2nd....I also think ALONE AGAIN is one of the best power ballads ever recorded...

True statement...if you don't own this album, well shame on you. Very difficult to pick as everyone has said but I'll go with Just Got Lucky.

Well, shame on me then. Somehow I'll try to live with myself. God knows I can certainly live without this album. -_-

For no reason I can explain, my favorite song on this disc has always been Bullets to Spare. Maybe the stop and start drums got my attention, or maybe it's that Lynch's playing is unusually crisp and understated. It is definitely a nice hard rock tune on a great metal release, no matter what that silly metalmeatheadWD40 (or whatever Mark goes by these days) thinks. :nyanya:

Yeah, well I kinda figured that it might've been done before...

 

But I do know that there have been a lot of new members since then, that might not have took part in it before. And I was listening to it the other day, and wanted to talk about it again! haha

No worries. :headbanger:

I think there's a Tesla and a Black N Blue poll that we've done at two or three times.

"Just Got Lucky", followed by "Into The Fire" and "Alone Again". Great album!

Exactly the same for me. :)

    • When it comes down to it, it is the love that matters. I feel the love of Christ in my life. I feel the certainty that He loves me. An atheist says that does not exist, it's imaginary. You even deny love to even be a thing, it's a chemical, it has no meaning. You walk outside, you see trees, you hear birdsong, and it means nothing. I see beauty everywhere I go, the beauty of Christ and His creation. I know beauty can be corrupted. I know evil exists. I know there is death. That is free will, baby. A person chooses to do what they do. Do I care if you believe what I know to be true to my core of being? No, not really. It's like someone saying to me "Def Leppard's Pyromania sucks". I know the music moves me and I love it. With Christ in my life it is that feeling x 1000. If it angers you that I have this love, as it seems to for some here, I can only apologise. It would be like not breathing to deny it. If that hurts your feelings cause once upon a time some church or Christian hurt you, I can just say, don't blame God for the followers. Evil appears in every element. Humans are fallible. Humans do bad shit. I am only responsible for my own soul. Do I want God to come down and intervene in every evil? Hell no. I love that we are free to choose. Forcing someone to love you is not love. Also, how about people be responsible for what they choose to do rather than blame God? You say there is nothing but death and darkness at the end. I know this is just a plane of existence and death has lost its sting. Again, I stress, I don't care if you agree or not. I'm not here to judge you. You are free to choose. I just ask for the same courtesy that you accept I don't share your views and that you can move past your hatred for that choice (not all on this site, just some).

    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.
