4.0 out of 5 stars Don IS Dokken! November 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I will be honest with you. I am not very crazy about solo projects by front men or members of bands I like. Often they "experiment" with things that they shouldn't and a strange, if not indeed just plain bad sound is created. The best example I can give you is Bret Michaels' tribute to Poison called "Show Me Your Hits."
That album almost killed Poison for me. It was just horrible!
So, I was at the store today and there were two Dokken albums on sale for a reduced price. "Shadow Life" and Don's solo album "Up From the Ashes." I had heard Puppet on a String from Shadow Life and thought it was a decent song but since hearing that song I was told by many that it is, to put it mildly, not a good or remotely happy album. So, I opted for the solo album and took a chance.
To say I'm blown away is an understatement!
From Crash 'n' Burn to The Hunger, I was shocked to hear just how much this album sounds like Dokken, the band! In fact, if I didn't know better, I'd swear George Lynch was on guitar! Of course, he wasn't. It was John Norum formerly of Europe. A little "FYI" information for you. John actually played with Dokken on their 2002-2003 tours. Not many can hold a candle to George Lynch, John holds a torch to it.
Crash 'n' Burn, Mirror Mirror, When Love Finds a Fool, Stay, and Livin' a Lie are my personal favorites off the album. There are a few melodies that fall a little flat and there are times when I think the chorus could have been slightly more energetic. But for the most part I thought the album to be one for the ages. It's up there with Under Lock and Key, for sure!
So, if you're afraid, as I was, of horrible and drastically different solo albums, fear not good citizen! This album is living proof, Don is the driving force behind Dokken: Not George, Jeff, or even Mick (though I LOVE Mick.) This is musical ecstasy. Pick it up! You'll be glad that you did!

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD rocks! Buy it!! June 7, 2002
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
I'm more of a casual heavy metal fan. I'm not too obsessed with one certain band, I just like lots of different bands. Some say I'm stuck in the 80's, but the best rock and metal came out of that time. The new stuff is [junk] and it sickens me that records like this one aren't getting the attention they deserve due to the early 90's grunge-wave and then into the newer rap-metal garbage. Back in the 80's, guitarists had to be skilled in the art of shredding, the rhythm section solid and powerful, and the vocalist clear and soaring. Bands like Dio, Ratt, Yngwie Malmsteen, Lizzy Borden, Queensryche, Van Halen, Tesla, Dokken, Iron Maiden, Ozzy, Europe, Judas Priest, Skid Row, ect...what happened to these great bands?
Anyway, on to the review. I was always a huge Dokken fan and obviously was [mad] when they broke up. When Lynch Mob came out with 'Wicked Sensation' in 1990, I immedietely went out and bought it. I had always assumed that no matter how good the other guys in Dokken were, George WAS Dokken and without him they wouldn't be half as good. I assumed he had all the talent and was the main driving force for Dokken. It sure didn't show on that Lynch Mob CD! It's not a bad CD, but there are only 2 or 3 really upbeat rockin' songs. Most of them are laid back, slow bluesy hard rock. Like I said, not a bad CD, but definetely not Dokken-esque. I didn't even know that Don Dokken released a solo album until recently when I saw it in a local record shop. I immedietely picked it up and was not dissapointed.
Don didn't skip a beat with this CD. This sounds EXACTLY like the Dokken from the 80's that we all know and love. Let's put it this way: This is not a Don Dokken solo CD, I'm willing to bet the band was called Don Dokken because the other guys in Dokken didn't want him using the name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than most Dokken albums. June 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being a big fan of the band Dokken, I was pretty ticked off when they broke up in "88" and like alot of other fans, I thought that Don was the one at fault. When he first released this album I refused to buy it just because of that reason. I went out and bought all of Lynch's solo albums and wasn't too thrilled with them. Recently I decided to give this album a listen, so I bought it. Anyone who reads this review take my advice and buy this c.d. especially at this great price. This c.d. is one of the best that I have. The music, lyrics, production is fantastic. Don compiled one of the most talented group of musicians ever assembled and it definitely shows. The only Dokken albums that are as good as this one are "Tooth and nail" and "Under lock and key". It is too bad that after George left the band this time around, Dokken did not hire John Norum to be it's new guitarist because I prefer him over Reb Beach.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as (and, in some cases, SURPASSES) Dokken December 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I am a longtime Dokken fan, and I was heartbroken when they disbanded in 1988-9 when Don and George just could not work out a reconciliation.

When this was first released, I admit I wondered how Don would do as a solo artist. This is quite a band assembled here - guitarist John Norum from Europe (careful observers will note that John Norum teamed up with Don Dokken again on the Dokken CD LONG WAY HOME), bassist Peter Baltes from Accept, drummer Mikkey Dee (a stint with King Diamond) and a great guitarist named Billy White. LOADS of talent here. This release totally exceeded my expectations - an all-around great release with no "fillers".

This CD kicks off with Crash 'N' Burn - one of my favorite songs of all time. A fast-paced song with a fantastic guitar solo. I'd rate this one a 10 - Don's vocals are great, and Dee / Baltes make for a fine rhythm section.

I love Don's vocals on 1000 Miles Away and When Love Finds a Fool. The latter features a sad-sounding acoutstic intro, and these songs touch upon the familiar Dokken-esque theme of being wronged by the ol' femme-fatale. Almost like "Alone Again" from TOOTH AND NAIL. Don Dokken can sing and croon with the best of rock's vocalists. "Stay" and "Down In Flames" are lyrically similar to the femme-fatale but those songs are more pop-metal than power ballads - cool stuff.

"Give It Up" is a song similar in theme to "Will The Sun Rise" from UNDER LOCK AND KEY. Kind of the same anti-war lyrics in each track. "Mirror Mirror" was a single released from this - that mid-tempo rocker is probably the most commercial friendly song from this recording.

I LOVE Peter Baltes' bass playing on "Forever" and "When Love Finds a Fool".

5.0 out of 5 stars still has the dokken magic
LOVE this record - it still stands up all these years later. "1,000 Miles Away," "When Some Nights," "Forever" and "Stay" are eargasms. Melodic hard rock at its finest.
