Well I'm probably in minority here but I think this is one of my least fave Dokken CD of the 80's. Stuff like "Dream Warriors", "Heaven Scent" and "Night BY Night" are first rate pop metal, but then there are a lot of filler too. I even think Don has stated somewhere that "So Many Tears" is one of the worst songs they ever recorded.
Been a while since I listened to this but I probably wouldn't rate it over 8...probably somewhere between 7.5 and 8.

What's the bonus track like?

Great album. Not every tracks is a winner though.

 

My favs are Prisoner, Night By Night, Cry Of The Gypsy.

 

Bored by : Dream Warriors, Mr Scary, Lost Behind The Wall

 

[need to amend my score for Sleepless Nights....I like that one]

just going on memory here.

 

Dream Warriors - yeah its OK, but the subject matter. Jeez. Something for 12 yr olds maybe. Yeah! Im a Dream Warrior ;-)

 

LBTW - the chorus is just a bit drab......isnt it? Will have to re-listen.

 

Mr Scary - well its an instrumental....again OK, but when you heard it 10 times do you really need to hear it again?? Skip.

Just listened to the whole cd tonight just to partake in the poll. Its probably been 20+ years since I have listened to this all the way through.

 

This is my 3rd favorite Dokken disc. First one being Under Lock and Key. They could have left off Mr. Scary (this is a blatant filler for me). I remember even when this album was new I did not play it that much. I would always go back to their older stuff. Its a great cd but I find their others to be more satisfying.

    • Nice. I have absolutely no idea.  Iron Maiden / The Lord's Prayer reference... Bruce?

    • STAR is out now on bandcamp and for 24hrs only, it's free, or "name your price"! so if you want it go grab it.  As for the song it's more LeBrock Awesomeness with a killer solo from McRocklin. lebrock.bandcamp.com/track/star-feat-mcrocklin
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music is thrilled to announce the signing of Powell-Payne a dynamic four-piece band hailing from West Wales, United Kingdom! Formed by founding members Mark ""Penfold"" Powell (ex-drummer of Psycho Kiss) and Adam Payne (former vocalist of Airrace) in 2022, Powell-Payne's journey began with a single goal - to create a heartfelt song dedicated to their lost loved ones. Joined by their dear friends Adam Davies on guitar and Steve Leyshon on keyboards, Powell-Payne quickly realised the magic of their collaboration and decided to embark on a full album project together. Expanding their lineup to include the exceptional talents of Aydan Watkins on guitar and Alex Anderson on bass guitar, Powell-Payne is ready to rock the world with their electrifying sound! Watch the video "Distance Between us":    
    • These guys can be found with the silver bells and cockleshells.
    • From the KC FB page: Kingdom Come is excited to announce a 'Return to the Kingdom'   Kingdom Come will be kicking off 2024 with a new lineup, management, a new album, and a brand-new tour, starting March 15th at The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. And the following night, March 16th, we will be in Lakewood, OH, at Mercury Music Lounge.  Two new band members will be joining our lineup. Veteran touring drummer Matt Muckle (Paul Gilbert, Lynch Mob) will be taking over drums for our dear recently-departed brother, James Kottak. And we're introducing the incredible Ezekiel Kaplan as our new vocalist.  We hope to see you all in March, and out on the road this year, as we 'Return to the Kingdom' to continue the legacy of Kingdom Come!  👑 https://kingdomcomerockband.com  
    • I think it's the other way around.  Still it's a very hooky album. I often thought a song doesn't necessarily have to end at 3:00 minutes. The endings are too abrupt sometimes.
