My favorite band; I've actually done several CD-R compilations for Dokken, and I usually wind up dividing them up into "Lynch" and "post Lynch". I find discussing their post-Lynch output more interesting, so here's one I may actually throw together later today :-)

 

1. Haunted

2. Maddest Hatter

3. Empire

4. Only Heaven Knows

5. Sunless Days

6. Point of No Return

7. Almost Over

8. Erase the Slate

9. Broken Bones

10. Haunted Lullabye

11. Don’t Bring Me Down

12. Little Girl

13. Sunset Superstar

14. Voice of the Soul

15. Heart to Stone

16. For the Last Time

For me it's an EP at best, sadly. I included 'Voice of the soul' and 'Change the world' in my list as they are on par with the best of Dokken's entire discography. Add to that 'Erase the slate' and 'Mary goes round' and you have the only songs I remember from all post-Lynch CDs, despite the fact I own and even like all albums since (well, I don't really like the new one at all). They're all "okay" but I'll be cursed if any of those songs stand out after the 'Erase the slate' CD.

 

Why on earth is 'Change the world' missing from your list? Seriously. ;)

It's a good song, but for whatever reason, it's never been one that's stood out for me.

 

I'm kinda surprised that tracks like "Little Girl" and "Only Heaven Knows" aren't on your list Geoff. They're as catchy and melodic as much of their prior output. :-)

 

*I think I'll do a Lynch compilation too for shits and giggles, as mine will probably be quite a bit different from most. :P

I felt the Japanese Best of Dokken disc did a credible job of showcasing the band. I started with that compilation, tweaked it slightly, added 2 songs and never really waded into the newer Dokken era too much.

 

And voila:

  1. "Tooth And Nail"
  2. "In My Dreams"
  3. "Breaking The Chains"
  4. "Into The Fire"
  5. "In Your Honour"
  6. "It's Not Love"
  7. "Alone Again"
  8. "So Many Tears"
  9. "Kiss Of Death"
  10. "Just Got Lucky"
  11. "Back For The Attack"
  12. "Unchain The Night"
  13. "Dream Warriors"
  14. "Mr. Scary"
  15. "Walk Away"
  16. "Night By Night"
  17. "Will the Sun Rise"
  18. "Heaven Sent"

First of all I don't think it's a week track , second-on an album of 13 songs(really good songs)saying it's one of the week tracks really isn't saying much!

Nope, sorry - I just don't hear it. I didn't think it was a particularly strong song to begin with, then I heard the version on 'Beast From The East', which is weaker than Superman in a Kryptonite suit. But, then, of course, my list includes 'Don't Close Your Eyes', which I don't think anyone else here has gone for, so clearly I'm in a minority ;)

Opinions will differ, of course. I like the song, but following this debate, I've been listening to it and I'm willing to admit that maybe it was too high in my list. It would still make the compilation, but might be nudged just outside the top ten.

 

To be honest, I'm far more shocked that you don't have 'Night By Night' or 'Unchain The Night' in your list! Heathen! :P

    • Pretty solid for what it is, but sadly, no killer track for me. The title track and 'King Of The Dead' and 'Taste Your Tongue' are my favourites, but none of this will be on my 2022 playlist.  
    • All in all it's a pretty decent album. First two songs and the tasty 'Say Farewell' are my picks of the lot, but everything on here's pretty solid. Biggest critique would probably be that it's all pretty similar and one-dimensional. But it's a pretty solid dimension.  
    • I guess this one's okay in places. Some cool metallic riffs here and there but overall not overly exciting. Solid for what it is, and I imagine Sword die-hards will probably dig it. 
    • Yeah, I was reading your list thinking that I was happy for you that you were that invested in your favourite albums this year. The albums in my list are far better than those, lol but I'm not sure I'm quite as passionate about them as you are about your top 10. Not sure, I say, as I will wait until the end of the year to see how my penned thoughts end up.  Anyway, I'm going to check out this VHS Collection thing tomorrow to see what that's all about. Otherwise, of your list, that Iron Allies one must be the curveball of the year, surely. Cannot for the life of me personally see what you see in that, but to each one's own, and glad you dig. 
    • Well I love my top 10 and it was basically impossible separating them. All killer albums imo. 
    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment-    
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums. 
    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.
