Dokken – The Very Best Of Dokken

Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 2, BMV #2: Dokken – The Very Best Of Dokken

Several of you guys talk about Dokken frequently, and I always say “sounds great, I need to get to them,” so when I saw this CD for $5 I knew it was my chance.

No kidding, this is some straight up awesome rockin’. Sure, some of it is cheesy and predictable, some of it would make great 80s fighter jet action movie soundtrack music. They’d fit right in with Poison and Mötley Crüe and the like, but they have something else, something different. There’s a charm to it all, a great mix of metal and the blues, an intelligence too, like a lover in a barroom brawl. Does that even make sense? Anyway. Make no mistake, these fellows could play! I really liked Tooth And Nail, because that was 100 mph and let’s go go GO! I also liked the slinky blues pummeling of Mr. Scary. The guitars there are stellar.

I jammed through these 16 tracks with ease. I dunno if I’d need any of the albums, but this collection of tracks served me very well. Now that’s what I’m Dokken about!
