DON DOKKEN/Solitary (Cleopatra Records)

Solitary

Yes, this is the same Don Dokken from the band Dokken, who was semi-big in the ’80s. Don’t expect metal or rock music on this as this is an all-acoustic solo album from him. His voice sounds fantastic on this as he sings the songs with a ton of feeling and passion. The music I didn’t dig so much as it is just too mellow for me after a couple of tunes. Don’t just think I love metal or underground metal as AC/DC is my favorite band, and I love smooth jazz and also Firehouse, Journey, UFO, Rush, and many other rock bands. Bottom-line just sounded like the same song repeatedly to me musically, with only some different lyrics sung to them. This didn’t click with me music-wise.
