Editorial Reviews

Dokken exploded out of the red-hot hard rock/heavy metal scene in Los Angeles in the early 1980s. Such classic albums as Tooth and
Nail , Under Lock and Key and Back for the Attack were all multi-platinum smash hits. Songs like "Alone Again", "Just Got Lucky", "Into
the Fire", "In My Dreams", "Unchain the Night", "Dream Warriors", "Burning Like a Flame" and "Heaven Sent" are still regarded among the
genre s finest compositions. Dokken shared the stage with the likes of AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith, Judas Priest, Van Halen, Kiss, Scorpions
and Bon Jovi, just to name a few.
Dokken have been touring and recording since there arrival on the rock scene in the early 80s and are now delivering their 11th studio
album. Broken Bones is a true return to their classic sound, following the path that Dokken took with their last release 2007 s highly
successful, "Lightning Strikes Again .
Dokken are going back to the roots of their sound and with a monster production, unearthing the hot riffs and soaring melodies that built
the band s success. Broken Bones rocks hard but still has incredible melodies, which is exactly what Dokken fans have been waiting for!
DOKKEN is now Don Dokken (vocals), Mick Brown (drums), Jon Levin (guitar) and Sean McNabb (bass). The album was mixed by Bob St.
John (Extreme, Zappa).

Rumored to be Dokken's last studio album of new material this is definitely as some others have correctly stated the best release of the Don/Jon Levin collaborations. Clearly Levin has established himself as Dokken's best guitarist since legend George Lynch departed for the 2nd time in 1997. Hired guns Reb Beach and John Norum were excellent replacements but in Levin Don found a talented guitarist who could play like George but also co-exist in a band setting. Broken Bones is a no-holds barred pedal to the metal for Levin who shines brightly both in his play and his tone. It's the best since his idol George Lynch in the Back For The Attack era. Guitar freaks will appreciate the nasty, crunchy, and fiery sound coupled with some tasty bluesy licks and bone crunching riffs. Don sounds much better than he did on 2008's Lightning Strikes Again due to throat surgery in 2010. Bassist Sean McNabb is a welcomed addition driving a tight rhythm section with longtime drummer "Wild" Mick Brown. The classic Dokken harmonies are here as are Don's penchant for lyrics regarding disastrous relationships. Some very hooky well written choruses are present and well as an album recorded with very solid production values. If this is indeed Dokken's swan song it is a fitting and surprisingly excellent finish to a storied career VH1's Behind The Music would have a field day with.

On a personal note I witnessed a concert by the band Sept 21st here near Buffalo, NY and I can attest Dokken was red hot. Don doesn't hit the high notes anymore and the songs are slightly tuned down to accommodate his register but he can still sing very well. Sean McNabb is a great musician and drummer Jimmy DeGrasso is filling in for "Wild" Mick who of course is touring with Ted Nugent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let it end September 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Few bands have given me more pleasure over the past 30 years than Dokken. Even without George, without Jeff, and a weakened (and at times embarrassing) Don, this band is still one-of-a-kind. No matter the lineup, Dokken is still capable of delivering a little magic on every release. Jon Levin is incredible. Never thought I'd say this but I almost don't miss George. The ultimate complement a Dokken fan can pay...Levin is that good. The first and last 3 songs on Broken Bones are up to the Dokken's best standards and the 5 tunes in the middle are all still totally enjoyable. Don's vox are not as strained as on Lightning Strikes Again - he seems to have found a register where he can still sound smooth. (of course, Mark Boals in the background doesn't hurt but cheating is allowed at this age)

Keep it going, Don - we're still out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best since Back For The Attack.... September 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is Dokken's best studio album since "Back For The Attack". These tunes are the most well written since that era. The catchy hooks and choruses are back....great group vocals....and blistering guitar work from Mr. Levin. Songs like "Empire" and the title track "Broken Bones" could have been on the afore mentioned album. If Don is right and this is Dokken's last album, they are going out with a bang! I have been a huge fan of the band since "Breaking The Chains", and Ive felt that the last several albums suffered from lack of energy and a very doomy feel. But this cd kicks ass. They sound great....you are not going to hear Don hitting those high register notes anymore....but then, he is about 60 years old now lol. He has done a great job on this cd. Very good stuff, and an album that oldschool diehard Dokken fans will love to add to their collection for repeated listens!

2.0 out of 5 stars i wanted to like this, but......... October 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD
there was a time when i was a huge dokken fan [albums 1 thru 4] so i'm not a hater, but i just don't see what others are digging about this CD. Don's limited range vocal performances are so lacking in energy, conviction and fire, it makes it difficult to listen to. on top of that, his bland and lifeless vocal tracks are pushed to the front of the mix at the expense of the guitars. it's a very 'polite' sounding mix and totally lacking the energy the [very good] music deserves [compare it to the sound of the last Ratt CD folks]. the guitarist does a carbon COPY of George Lynch. tone, phrasing, vibrato, flat 5 riffs- everything Lynch did he does to a tee. some may love it. respectful and cool when playing the old material but i think it's cheesey and Karaoke like when a guitarist so blatently adopts [steals] another ones style while writing NEW material. i wanted to like this, but it's just not that good- better than most of the non George releases but fails to come even close to any of the original Dokken stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Broken Bones March 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have one thing to say to anyone who says this disc has no catchy hooks or melodies. It is time to get your hearing checked. To me this is what melodic rock is all about, listen to the lyrics, these songs not only sound great but the songs are melodic & full of meaning. I don't expect guys that are close to 60 to be writing & singing about strip clubs, partying etc etc. to fans of this band and Don Dokken I don't know what more you could expect. Don has struggled with his voice in recent years and live he has seen better days but here he nails it. His voice is perfect on these songs. I just hope there is at least 1 more disc left in them because this just left me wanting more.
