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).

I'll start with the songs... 3 stars, there are 3 or 4 songs that stays on your head, memorable, but the rest are forgetable. Empire, Broken Bones, Tonight are amazing songs, with great guitars, great choruses, great solos and they stick on your mind for a long time. The rest of the songs allthough are good, are conventional & sometimes when you're not paying attention, it seems you're listening to the same song (due mostly to Don's lower vocal range)
Solos: 4.5 STARS. Oh my... Jon finally got off George's shadow on this one!! he is playing his way, his rules, not trying to be George. This is one of the most enjoyable parts of the record. Most of the songs have excellent solos. Way to go Jon!!
Voice & Choruses 3.5 STARS: Ok... we all know Don's voice is all screwed up, but the good thing here is that he found a tone where he is confortable and he can sing, sounds repetitive sometimes, but is way better than listening to him trying to reach the high tones without good results. The good thing here, is that they add lots of choruses and voices like the good old records, so the choruses sound really good, no matter that Don's singing the lower parts, its good enough.
Production: 4.5 STARS: I have to say, this is the best Dokken record in terms of production since Disfunctional. Sounds amazing! the sound quality and the little details are really well taken. I gave the first listen with earphones and listening to the CD directly. I like the songs way better that way. After that I add them to my ipod and you loose a lot of sound quality.
I recently bought T&N which I think is a great great record. I feel they play with more energy, and the songs are more memorable sometimes, But the production is not the same and the solos are better in Broken Bones (Yes, George was second place this time)
Bottomline... A great & honorable record for a band that survived it all and it's saying goodbye.
