A Great Deal of Metal Fun!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tooth & Nail (Audio CD)
Dokken were one of the few bands in hair-metal era that actually managed to stand out and be distinguishable from a lot of their contemporaries. "Tooth and Nail" is probably their best effort and it's great deal of fun! It made plenty of trips to my turntable in the 80's and I'm glad it's available in CD now! And for all you ex-80's metalheads out there, like yours truly? It's a nice big hunk of metal nostalgia. Don Dokken's unique voice and George Lynch's blinding guitar compliment each other quite nicely. And the drums and bass hold everything together like crazy glue. Lynch manages to shift with little or no effort between different styles and moods -- thick, churning blues riffs, speedy stacatto solos and acoustic tracks and so on. The high points, IMHO, are "Alone Again", "When Heaven Comes Down" and "Don't Close Your Eyes." So, break out your denim, leather, bandannas and your hairspray. This one's a real treat!
