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:

Haven't I done a poll on this already? :unsure:

 

Here it is all the way back in 2006.

I voted for "Into the Fire" last time so that's where my vote goes this time too. :tumbsup:

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.

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
