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).

Format: Audio CD
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.

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.

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 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!

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.

Format: Audio CD
Chances are if you've sampled or even just read reviews of "Broken Bones" you're a lot like me, a headbanger from the 80's whose tastes have morphed over the years but still has a sentimental weakness for the genre. I first witnessed Dokken in concert back in 1984 and have made albums like "Under Lock and Key" among my favorites. In taking in a few samples of this release I made sure that I had a sober realization that he's pushing 60. A recent YouTube viewing of him live in concert (where Lynch crashes the party, no doubt!) helped reinforce that reality. Truth be told, I had up until now written Don and his incarnation of the band off after what I considered the swan-song gem of "Erase the Slate", especially after grabbing a hold of Lynch and Pilson's "Wicked Underground" and finally with Don putting the brakes on a much-awaited reunion of the original lineup a few years back.

Enter this title. Much of the positive reaction is well warranted with some minor caveats. One of the first elements I try to soak in when checking out a hard rock LP is the guitar and I can honestly say that as a guitarist for most of those 30 years who made Lynch one of my influences I find Jon Levin INCREDIBLY impressive. His 'element' is really a strong derivative of GL; he has wound up doing Lynch better than Lynch himself. His expression, passion and proficiency are something that I have to say however are missing in much of the former's contemporary efforts. The rest of the band, 'Wild' Mick Brown (good to see him hanging in there) and Sean McNabb are serviceable but somewhat subdued with Levin and Don in the foreground. To be fair, that's pretty much par for the course in the Dokken realm, so no major disappointments in the rhythm department.
