There was a host of classic Metal albums released in the early 80's before hairspray and pouting became the vogue. Even with their big hair, Dokken always seemed like a true blue, no thrills, melodic Metal band with the ability to knock out some truly kickass songs. Their 1984 opus Tooth and Nail is no exception; ask anyone from that era and they'll tell you.Whether it's the title track or Just Got Lucky, you know you're in for a good time. These are the sort of tunes that should be played (loud) when knockin' back some Budweisers. Not even a ballad (the classic Alone Again) deters this album from rising above their contemporaries. Today, the music sounds vintage; a relic of when times were simpler and when the bands were better.
Go find/download/steal (whatever) this album and crank it up to eleven. This is the band that will remain with you through all the good, rockin' times.
