Dokken discography tierlist


Recommended Posts

I just noticed my tiers are different tiers to yours above. I do prefer the tier labels above. I have no idea what the album at the bottom of my list is. Curse the small text.

lol, I know it's just to get a bite, I assume, but would be curious to hear you explain why those bottom four aren't bad, just not your thing. But 'Under lock and key,' 'Tooth and nail' and 'Up from the Ashes' are actually all bad. Your thing or not, they're bad albums but the bottom four aren't? Please indulge me and offer an explanation. ;)

yea tooth and nail could probably join into that other category.  I've never been much of a Dokken fan, but they have a handful of albums that don't out right suck.  I recently did take another stab at Dokken's discography; as I do with lauded bands from time to time but nothing really took.  Honestly outside of a new single I'll probably never listen to Dokken ever again.

So is it any good? As I didn't even know it was released......

It is VERY mellow acoustic stuff.  Much like how I have to be in a certain mood to listen to AIC, Godsmack, or Disturbed, I have to want to REALLY mellow out to listen to it. Definitely not gonna be for everyone.

Fair enough, to each their own and all that jive. Just can't figure out what 'Back for the attack' might possess to make it not bad compared to what 'Under Lock & Key' may possess to make it bad. BUT! To each their own, n' stuff.

yea most of the releases are not outright bad in the sense they're unlistenable, it's all just kind of dull for me.

Not gonna lie, but have never been a massive Dokken fan. When they record a killer song they do it brilliantly, but overall they never excited me. They are what I call a "Best of" band. A band that in reality I only need a compilation album.

I only own a handful of their albums, but Under lock and key would be my fave followed by Tooth & nail. That said, my fave song by them is on neither of those albums. Dream warriors.

    • That is simply brilliant...such a great band...love that artwork...this has made my day  
    • New EP out now, digital only. From rocknloadmag.com: Swedish melodic hard rock supergroup Crowne will release a new live EP entitled ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ on 19th August, a little treat to hold fans over as they await the release of a second album by the band. A live performance ‘Kings In The North’ from the EP is available from today on all digital platforms. The studio recording of ‘Kings In The North’ was the title track of their 2021 debut album, a record that truly delivered on the promise of the combined talents of the group members. Comprised of vocalist Alexander Strandell (Art Nation), guitarist/keyboardist/producer Jona Tee (H.E.A.T.), bassist John Levén (Europe) and drummer Christian Lundqvist (The Poodles), the record was a tour de force of Scandinavian melodic hard rock. It also featured guitar solos from Love Magnusson (Dynazty), who has now joined the line-up as permanent lead guitarist. ‘Live From Studio Gröndahl’ features the quintet tearing through five songs from ‘Kings In The North’ and allows fans to hear (and see) them playing live in an intimate setting. Crowne is the most exciting, thrilling supergroup created to date from the Swedish melodic hard rock scene. Having already crafted a beast of a debut, this stellar cast of outstanding musicians are currently working diligently to better it with the recording of its follow-up.

    • That's good to hear. The album Vanity Kills was pretty awesome. Some of the songs had bit of modern rock vibe to them which I thought was cool. Yep, hope we get to hear more music from you guys. 
    • Album out now. Listen to the rest of the album:                  
    • 'Forgotten Toys' out now. Listen to the rest of the album:            
    • Love these guys. In my opinion, they are more of hard/melodic rock than synthwave. Plenty of guitar riffs and solos. Another killer track, my fave song so far this year.

    • Yes, I'm the new bassplayer :). I have asked Ward Dufraimont to answer your question, as he is better suited to reply: In a nutshell : Expectations were high in 2010 with a debut album out on MelodicRock Records and big dreams, unfortunately the wheels started coming off from the word ‘go’. After losing our permanent drummer and rehearsal space and wasting precious time trying to sort that all out, frustration started to kick in. In an effort to keep moving forward, we recorded a second full length album in 2012, which sits unmixed on a hard-drive somewhere. Sometimes life gets in the way, and we decided to shelve the whole thing before friendships were lost. In 2022, with enough water under the bridge, we are back in full force, with a deluxe reissue of the debut album (out of print for years) to kickstart the whole thing. Playing out as much as we can, opening for the likes of FM, Jelusick, Gun, and others this year, spreading the word. We hope to have a new single out later this year, and more new music next year. A new decade, a new lineup, a fresh start. Nothing’s gonna stop us now !
    • New album out today.  Gave it one listen and seems pretty decent and in line with their last album. Worth checking if you liked their last one.
