DOKKEN ‘Change The World - An Introduction’ Sanctuary SMRCD127 (2004)

In the light of the recent Hell To Pay set, a reminder of this West Coast bandís back catalogue is maybe no bad thing. But to cover it in one disc? It needs two. Trust me.

The original lineup featured guitarist George Lynch, but this post reformation collection (1996 onwards) shows vocalist Don Dokken still had the power and ability without him. Still pandering to MTV, thereís the big hair leanings and plenty of power and acoustic moments too.

'Erase The State' kicks off well, some older tracks including 'Unchain the Night' sound good live. Yet even though Dokken have moved on and made some refreshing strong music in the 90s/00s, itís not the Classic 80s Dokken most fans should get to hear. But this collection will introduce to those stuck in the 80s. Pretty enjoyable, but could be better.
