  1. 1984 was such a great year for Metal music!

    Dokken had made waves with BREAKING THE CHAINS in ’83 but they actually hit it big with this album and four singles: ‘Tooth & Nail’, ‘Just Got Lucky’, ‘Into the Fire’ and ‘Alone Again’. None of them were chart busting hits but they did get played a lot on Rock radio and MTV, especially ‘Alone Again’. I love this whole record!

    If you like the Pop Metal/MTV hair era, try the next Dokken album UNDER LOCK AND KEY…..that sounds real slick but that album made Dokken a multi-platinum band.

    Heavy Metal Addiction

    • Nope…not today…not ever…George is totally giving up on Don. George dose not need him anyway. I love what Dokken has done. HUGE fan. But George has moved on. As he should.


  3. Tooth and Nail had great songs, but the sound quality was horrible. It was produced by Tom Werman and Roy Thomas Baker. If you listen carefully to some of the drum sounds on this album, they actually sound distorted. I mean no disresoect to Tom Werman, but this album sounded worse than the Breaking the Chains album. Paris is Burning, which was on the first akbum, sounded better than any sing off of Tooth and Nail. However, the songs were awesome and they deserved beteer production in sound quality. In my opinion, the best Dokken album was Back for the Attack.
