Product Description

Product Description

Digitally remastered edition of the L.A.-based Heavy Metal band's third studio album. Produced by both British studio wizard Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Kansas, Autograph) and Michael Wagener (M”tley Cre, Extreme) the album, originally released in 1985, is generally regarded as one of their best creations, giving rise to a number of classic tracks, including 'The Hunter' , 'Unchain The Night' , 'It's Not Love' and the chart hit 'In My Dreams' . It was a record that promoted them to an A-grade platinum attraction and one that resulted in the sort of curb appeal shared by the likes of the Scorpions, Ratt and White Lion. 16 page full color booklet 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, unpublished photos and new interview with Don Dokken.

Sure, they may have been the kings of heavy metal Cheez Whiz, but unlike many image-conscious '80s rockers, Dokken wrote genuinely appealing songs. Frontman Don Dokken's voice carried better than most belters, and George Lynch was a ferociously gifted guitarist who could tug at the heartstrings as easily as he could burn down the bedroom. Under Lock and Key, which wasn't as combustive as Dokken's first two albums Breaking the Chains and Tooth and Nail, seemed like an effort by the band to attract a larger following. It worked. Candy metal softballs like "It's Not Love," "Unchain the Night," and "In My Dreams" were heavy enough to keep the guys rockin', but sensitive enough to attract the chicks. And isn't that what '80s metal was all about? --Jon Wiederhorn

I purchased this album a few months back with the understanding that it was the SHM CD from Japan. This was not the case. It seemed strange that a SHM CD would be listed for such a cheap price. The average SHM CD is around $30.00 or more. I thought that maybe Amazon was just having a sale and getting rid of them, so I bought it.
When i got this album, it was not in the cardboard package and should also have had a Japanese label on it. I would have sent it back , but the TOOLS that work in the warehouse for Amazon would have just sent me the same thing over again. Buy the Album because you like Dokken. Don't buy it if you think you're getting the Japanese version

From the introdcutory acoustic opening chords of "Unchain the Night", quickly turning into a crunchy, solid hard rocker, this CD is a winner!
"The Hunter" growls and prowls. "In My Dreams", is one of Dokken's more well known songs. It's radio friendly, but melodic and hard enough to still satisfy fans of Dokken's brand of hard rock. (I hate to call them metal...they really are more hard rock).
"Slippin' Away" slows things down a bit. It's one of two ballads of the CD. But it's just another example of how professional and polished these guys were as a band. The harmonies displayed here at one point in the tune are beautifully done.
"Lightin' Strikes Again" quickly brings things back up to speed...nearly a thrasher, but again, tightly played.
I could go on with the rest of the tracks of the album, but it would sound redundant. One thing Dokken had the edge over on any of the "hair bands" "metal bands" (whatever you want to call them) was MELODY.
Everything shines here...Jeff Pilson's bass, Mick Brown's drumming and percussion, George Lynch's blistering solos, and Don Dokken's vocals. Even down to the cover...the tousled hair, the colorful outfits, and the rhyming band name and CD title. This one, and "Tooth and Nail", are probably the two best bets if you're interested in re-discovering 80's hard rock.

I doubt that a two word sentence was ever uttered with the words 'Dokken' and 'Rules' in alphabetical order. Of all the hard rocking L.A. hair metal bands, Dokken was a unique mystery. They were not really power pop because of George Lynch's amazing guitar skills, and they weren't Bon Jovi either, even though Don Dokken wanted everyone to think he was just as sexy and talanted (I for one think that Bon Jovi sucks, but that style was where the money was in the decadant 80's).
Dokken was a meat and potato rock n roll band, period. They hit it big for a short time on MTV with the video 'In my Dreams', followed by 'It's not Love'. Belive it or not a cheap and worthless black and white fuzzy video was shot for 'The Hunter' that played on Headbanger's Ball maybe two times.
Under Lock and Key is a good definition of what Dokken is and what they could have been. When you hear a song like 'Lightning Strikes' you say these guys can really rock, but when you hear stuff like Slippin' Away, you laugh at them for being a cheezy hair band. I don't know of anyone who detests Dokken, but I don't think they were anyone's favorite band. Here's the best way to send them up.
When a Poison or Warrant fan put them on, they were into 'the hard stuff', however a Slayer or Anthrax fan could play them without being embarrassed.

Under Lock And Key (1985.) Dokken's third album.
By 1985 Dokken had managed to become one of America's most popular heavy metal bands. The band's first two albums found them trying to find their sound, and around this era, the band had finally managed to find the sound that would bring them success in the latter half of the eighties. It was obvious that Don Dokken, George Lynch, Mick Brown, and Jeff Pilson were heavy metal masterminds by now, and in 1985 the band released its third studio album, Under Lock And Key. This is Dokken's most popular album and the one most fans call their best. Are they right? Read on for my review.
To put it simply, this is a damn fine Dokken album. It's not my favorite, but many fans of the band would beg to differ there. One thing you'll notice about this album as opposed to the previous two is that the production has been improved. Also, once you listen to the album, you'll agree - there isn't a single filler track. In fact, several of the band's biggest hits came from this album. Among them are In My Dreams, which is probably the most popular song that the band has ever recorded. Eighties hard rock never sounded much better. Another fairly large hit from this era was It's Not Love. This track is my personal favorite of all of the band's big hits, and why not? If you need a song that shows you why these guys were one of the best heavy metal bands of their era, this one will demonstrate that point beautifully. I could care less about the dialogue session about two thirds of the way through the song, but it doesn't change my feelings about the track as a whole. And then, of course, there are several lesser-known tracks that are equally good.
