In my dreams, it's still the same: This album rocks, it will remain!

"Under Lock and Key" is one of my very favorite Dokken albums. It's amazing! Right off the bat, "Unchain the Night" impacts the listener with the signature sound of Don Dokken's wailing voice combined with George Lynch's wailing guitar. They may not like each other, but they definitely worked well together, especially here.

This album is both intense and soft when called for, creating a wonderful variety (considering that glam metal doesn't offer much variety to begin with). My favorite tracks here are: "The Hunter", "In My Dreams", "Lightning Strikes Again", and "Jaded Heart." Every song is amazing though, so get this one in its entirety.
