I had such big expectations on this album when it came out but it turned out to be a big disappointment for me. Don Dokken meanwhile was cooking up a hot new band. Even staunch-’80s rock supporters probably won’t enjoy Up From the Ashesas the record exudes nothing close to the fire of Dokken ‘s original band. The production is perfect.

Fair enough but i thought it could have been trimmed down a bit…. Well the happy ending is that Dokken recently did a Japanese tour with the classic lineup, and things went dokkn. Please enable JavaScript in your browser to use the site fully.

This is a shame since Mikkey Dee is such a drum demon. But he could still sing like crazy. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.

Rather than remembering the live album they finished with Beast From the Eastpeople recall the animosity and bitter attacks in the rock press.

Been enjoying some Dokken stuff recently. Fans of ’80s hair metal certainly count the band that carried Dokken ‘s name as one of the premier outfits of the decade. Dokken imploded in not with a bang but a whimper. Well, that certainly answers the flag confusion regarding Norum!

The record is well-produced, and the performances asjes Norum ‘s soloing are quite polished, but the songwriting and lyrics are standard at best, and pretty out of date by the time this offering hit record store shelves. Nobody could accuse him of leaning on George Lynch.

I remember him trying to get a band together with John Norum inI think. Post was not sent – check your dno addresses!

No real weak songs ddokken within. The Canadian flag is very very hard to draw. You must be a fan of Dr. I remember being a bit upset by the Norwegian flag beside Norum back when I bought this album.
