Further proof that Don Dokken can make a great album without the presence of George Lynch.

This album, the first of Don's solo career, has the classic Dokken sound that fans of the original band crave so badly. Don's voice is just as beautiful, emotional, and powerful as always and the lyrics are in a very familiar vein. Current Dokken lead guitarist John Norum lights it up on the album, along side co-lead guitarist Billy White. Their guitar solos can very easily be mistaken for Lynch solos, and that is a great thing.

All the songs here are good, especially if you love such Dokken albums as "Under Lock and Key" and "Back for the Attack."
