Pilson sounds like Don Dokken on steroids.
"jpquest"
This album is the epitome of how two extremely gifted people bring out creative, unique, and stand alone music when collaborating to create a joint project.

With "Wicked Underground," ex-Dokken bandmates George Lynch and Jeff Pilson are back together again to deliver a new, yet familiar, breed of guitar rock on another generation of music fans. As part of the popular 80's rock band Dokken, Jeff and George worked together to propel the band to stardom thanks in part to George's highly influential guitar work and their great chemistry together as songwritters. After they both eventually left Dokken (Lynch in 1997 and Pilson in 2001), they have decided to join forces once again and pick up where they left off.
Although it's been four years, this album shows that Jeff and George still have a good creative chemistry between them. Instead of a throwback to the eighties, Jeff and George have decided to take a more modern approach to the record. But before some of you fellow Dokken fans are discouraged, let me reassure you that this is not a complete departure from what we have come to expect from Jeff and George. No, there is no rapping here like there was on the last Lynch Mob CD "Smoke This." Actually, it is similar in sound to Dokken's 1995 album "Dysfunctional," which was a generally well-received album by both fans and critics alike. There are the occasional vocal screams and computer programed effects (check out the track "Breath & A Scream" for an example), but believe me this does not take anything away from the album. For those of you that may have questioned George's musical direction after his rap-rock Lynch Mob album, you will be glad to know that George is in great form again. In addition to playing Bass, Jeff Pilson is also covering lead vocals on the album. And for those of you who don't already know, this guy can sing.

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when I bought this album. Of course, I wouldn't have been surprised if this combo sounded much like Dokken, but it didn't - at all. I truly cannot find much comparison between Dokken & Lynch/Pilson.
George Lynch (of Lynch Mob) & Jeff Pilson (one-time Dio bassist) have really created an interesting piece of work. It is obvious that "nu-metal" has had a bit of influence on this album, but it's really not a detriment in this case. Lynch's chops are still tight & clean on almost every track. Pilson's voice is in fine shape, showing some diversity & range. Also, the songwriting is quite good: interesting & intelligent lyrical subject with solid, organized arrangements. Overall, I would say the album is quite dark, with most of the songs in a minor key, some dissonance thrown in at the perfect time, and ominous-sounding titles like "When you Bleed", "The Evil that you Are", & "Goodbye Utopia". The CD packaging is an eyecatcher, too. I wish the song lyrics were printed, though.
My personal favorite cuts are opener "Breath & a Scream", the quasi-acoustic "Ever Higher", & the eerie "Awaken".
DO NOT buy this album expecting a Dokken minus Don; it is something totally different, and stands on its own as a solid contemporary metal album.

I bought this album the day it was released. I knew it was going to be good having sampled a few of the tracks on George's site. I'm pleased to say it lived up to my expectations. While my favorite Lynch album remains Wicked Sensation, LP is now second on that list. Lynch's tone and riffs are behemoth. The guy hasn't missed a step. He's toned down the shredding a bit and gone with a little more feel in the solos, but he still lets loose the chops enough to please this die-hard fan. Pilson sounds a bit like Don Dokken, but with more balls. I'd actually like to hear Jeff get a little tougher sounding, but perhaps that's just not his vocal approach. The songs are very strong. There's only two tracks I consistently skip over. The sound/tone a bit more modern. If you love George Lynch and are willing to be a little open-minded (like not expecting this to sound like Under Lock & Key)), then you'll dig this CD.

Back in 1988, went to the Monsters Of Rock Tour in Oxford, Me. and got a treat. On a miserable thundering rainy day for a couple of songs Jeff Pilson took over vocals for Don who ran off the stage due to the weather. Yes Jeff, Mick and Mr. Scary played on and it was awesome. These guys didn't need Don at all and hoped when Dokken broke up they would carry on. Never dreamed it would take 15 years to happen that George Lynch and Jeff Pilson would finally record together. The wait was worth it. The Wicked Underground the best album I have heard in years and has found a happy home in my CD player. Every track rocks and Mr. Scary's playing is brilliant. Without a doubt Mr. Scary is still the best. Pick this one up and you will not regret it. The Wicked Underground settles one question. Just who the heart and soul of Dokken was. No it wasn't Don with his big ego, but both Jeff and George.

Excellent job, guys! You have rekindled all that was lost from my musical tastes. I have a very broad but specific like when it comes to music. My first love is classical music but have a fascination for heavy metal due to their similar styles. George definitely has a sacred grove when it comes to playing the guitar. His style is very innovative but also contains undertones of a style that only George can create. This is what makes him so unique. I applaud Jeff for his outstanding voice and musical virtuosity. This album is the epitome of how two extremely gifted people bring out creative, unique, and stand alone music when collaborating to create a joint project. Again, great album! I can't wait until you release the next one or go on tour.
