Editorial Reviews

Rhino and Elektra have teamed to round up the best from Dokken's six Elektra albums and Don Dokken's 1990 Geffen album. It's the only Dokken "best-of" out there and it's got over an hour of music, including Alone Again; In My Dreams; Burning Like a Flame; Dream Warriors; Into the Fire; Breaking the Chains , and 10 more!

Customer Reviews

I have to say: Dokken is one of the best metal bands ever !!!
Meldeen
Great Don Dokken vocals, marvellous guitar work by George Lynch and brilliant, tuneful, melodic choruses that were a trademark of the 80's metal.
Bartosz Grzegorzyca
Bands like Ratt, Motley Crue, Warrant, Poison, Winger, 80's Kiss were the classic hair metal's combos and they were great, no doubt about it.

It's nice to see a "best of" album with most of this band's good stuff. All the big air play hits are here: Breaking the Chains, Alone Again, Into The Fire, The Hunter, It's Not Love (Thanks for that one!), In My Dreams, etc. Some hot stuff from later releases from the band (and Don's solo effort) also make it a bonus CD: Mirror Mirror and Too High To Fly.
While this release from Dokken is a good compilation, a few (of my) top songs from the band didn't make the list: Don't Close Your Eyes, Bullets To Spare and Prisoner Of Love. It's tough to please everyone! However, Don Dokken's smooth vocal delivery coupled with George Lynch's fine axe work make this a great album to pick up regardless of personal preferences for one tune or another. If you don't have a Dokken album in your collection and you like 80's hard rock/pop metal, this is the one to get.

THE BAND: Don Dokken (vocals, guitar), George Lynch (guitars), Jeff Pilson (bass), Juan Croucier (bass on Dokken's debut only), Mick Brown (Drums & percussion). *Note - the song "Mirror Mirror" is from Don Dokken's solo release - featuring John Norum (guitar), Billy White (guitar), Peter Baltes (bass), and Mikkey Dee (drums).

THE DISC: (1999) 16 tracks clocking in at approximately 75 minutes. Included with the disc is a 14-page booklet containing song titles/credits, an brief yet insightful paragraph about each song, a 5-page intro/history on the band, 2 color band photos, and which songs came from what albums and chart success. Label - Elektra / Rhino.

ALBUM REPRESENTATION: Breaking The Chains (2 songs), Tooth And Nail (4), Under Lock And Key (3), Back For The Attack (4), Beast From The East (1), Up From the Ashes (1), Dysfuntional (1).

COMMENTS: This is a great single disc collection of Dokken material. However, if you're looking for a more in-depth taste, then go with Dokken's "The Definitive Rock Collection" (featuring all the songs on this disc, minus "Mirror Mirror")... released in 2006 with 29 tracks on 2-discs. "The Very Best Of Dokken" features 16 blistering tunes - no filler, with the exception of perhaps "Mirror Mirror" from Don Dokken's solo album (1990)...this song seems strangely out of place here since it's not technically a Dokken "band" song (if you do feel that this song needs to be here, then you need to include one of Lynch's solo songs here too... the best choice being most any track from his "Wicked Sensation" album).

This is the first greatest hits CD that I ever bought from Rhino records and I'm glad that they released this Greatest Hits CD on Rhino Records cause the sound quality is really good and the liner notes is very informative, it's everything that a Dokken fan needs to know, what got me into Dokken was hearing In My Dreams on the radio when I was getting ready to go to bed and I was packing up to go to Long Beach, Washington, I think that Dokken guitarist George Lynch is one of metal's underrated guitar players of all time and he can really play and I think that Dokken was one of the best hair metal bands of all time too cause they had good songwriting skills as well, this CD has 16 cuts from 1983-95 and 14 of it was from 1983-88 and we do get to have one Don Dokken solo cut called Mirror Mirror which is quite a good song and I'm surprised that the song didn't make it big, plus I had no idea that George Lynch formed a new band called Lynch Mob either.
Here are my ratings for each track.
Breaking the Chains: Dokken's first known song off of their debut album and it is the title track but this song is a classic, who can forget the video when George Lynch starts breaking the chains during the guitar solo part? 10/10
Paris is Burning (live): This live track is actually off of Dokken's debut album and it's awesome, I like the opening part of the song the best. 10/10
Into the Fire: Now we enter the Tooth and Nail album and this song is a classic, excellent chorus. 10/10
Just Got Lucky: This is one of Dokken's heavier songs but this song isn't quite one of my favorites. 8/10
Alone Again: This song was Dokken's biggest hit and I'm surprised that they didn't score a Top 40 hit on the Billboard charts.

I was 15 when Dokken's Breaking The Chains came out. I have been hooked ever since. I am 33 years old now, and still love Dokken and other 80's hair bands. This cd is a must have. It has every song yoiu would want from the early 80's to the early 90's. Don Dokkens sultry, bluesy, voice and George Lynch's fiery, blistering guitar, made Dokken an 80's icon. Get this cd, you want be dissapointed. Metal Rules....

For me this music just gets better with age, I've listened to this CD on a regular basis ever since I purchased it last year. George Lynch's guitar-work just owns me. His brilliant fret-work is showcased in this collection. When you pop this CD in your player, you are instantly blown away by Lynch's guitar in your face with a monster riff on 'Breakin The Chains'. And an awesome guitar solo to boot. In my opinion, the opening 1:30 of 'Paris Is Burning' could easily stand up to Eddie Van Halen's 'Eruption', and that says a mouthful. This portion of the song is a finger-tapping, fret-work frenzy! I enjoy all songs on the CD, the only one I usually skip is the Don Dokken solo song 'Mirror, Mirror'. It is a good song, but I feel that it probably should've been left off this collection. 'In My Dreams' is awesome, 'Dream Warriors', 'Tooth And Nail', 'Walk Away', 'Heaven Sent', and the guitar-frenzied instrumental 'Mr. Scary' all rock hard! Don Dokken is a great singer, his vocal range and style fits well with this style of music. Jeff Pilson's bass and Mick Brown's drumming are also a great complement to Don's singing and Lynch's awesome guitar work. As another reviewer said, it truly is a shame that Lynch and Don Dokken don't get along. This band had excellent chemistry together during this era of their music. Reb Beach from Winger replaced Lynch a few years ago, he is a great guitarist and is a good fit for the band because of his flashy style. This album is guitar riffs galore! So if you're a fan of great, flashy, over-the-top, larger than life 80's style rock/metal, you'll absolutely love this CD! Do yourself a huge favor and get this one. Two words for ya, ROCK ON!!!
