5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Precision Jan. 2 2004
By Mike M
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge Lynch fan (like so many other guitarists), buying this one was a no-brainer. In my opinion, this is the best Lynch ever!
Its refreshingly different and more modern sounding than Dokken. George maintains all of the raw engergy of previous while taking the guitar to the next level with crisp new tones and incredible guitar work. It sounds a bit more wet, yet crystal clear and every song is at least very good, while the others are awesome. The lead on "All I Want" is paralyzingly incredible while the one on "Hell Child" is TOTAL DOOMSDAY!
Also, everone else's performance and the sound production are all excellent. The drums and bass are tight, precise and inspiring. The singer (a "Hell Child") is overflowing with raw engergy and will bring some listeners to tears on "Through these eyes".
This is one of my favorite heavy rock cd's of all time - if you are a Lynch fan, but it now and then CRANK IT!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit like Badlands May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
George Lynch left Dokken, brought drummer Mick Brown with him and recruited a great singer by the name of Oni Logan and Anthony Esposito (bass) to form his own band - Lynch Mob. In 1990 came the first album and it's obvious that Lynch wanted to break free from the radio friendly pop metal direction of Dokken since this effort is loud and heavy but still rather melodic. The opening groovy and heavy "Wicked sensation" is just a great heavy metal song and the same goes for "River of love" and "All I want". The music reminds a bit of Badlands (featuring Ray Gillen - R.I.P and Jake E Lee), and like Badlands, Lynch Mob's material have a tendency to melt together. For the follow up album (simply titled "Lynch Mob"), singer Logan was for some reason gone and that's a shame because that new guy wasn't of the same calibre besides the fact that on the follow up album the material was a lot weaker.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Sensation is wicked awesome! Nov. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wicked Sensation (1990.) Lynch Mob's first album.
In the late eighties or early nineties, guitar virtuoso George Lynch left Dokken, the band he'd made ever-so-successful (he'd later go back but would eventually leave again.) Teaming up with his Dokken bandmate Mick Brown (drums), Oni Logan (vocals), and Anthony Esposito (bass), he formed a new band - appropriately called Lynch Mob. Although half of the band was (at the time) former Dokken members, the sound was quite different - it was blusier than Dokken, and had more of a nineties rock sound to it than Dokken did (though the band's styles changed a good deal on later releases.) Read on for my review of Lynch Mob's first album - Wicked Sensation.
Wicked Sensation - The title track kicks the album off. It's a hard power rocker with that early nineties power rock sound to it that you're sure to love. Excellent opener.
River of Love - This hard rocker also has a nineties sound to it, but this one is a little more "pop friendly" than the previous track. Lynch serves up some killer riffs.
Sweet Sister Mercy - Yet another hard rocker. As you may have suspected, George Lynch is one again the highlight of the band (but don't overlook the other members - they worked just as hard!)
All I Want - THIS IS NOT THE OFFSPRING SONG. This is a melodic hard rocker that, like so many tracks on this album, features a nineties rock sound. Good track.
Hell Child - Ths track is slower than the previous ones, but it rocks just as hard, thanks to Mr. Lynch. It's not a slight melodic touch to it, and it is reminiscent of Ronnie James Dio's hit Dream Evil. If you're not familiar with Dio, that's a good thing.
She's Evil But She's Mine - Another one of the album's slower tracks.

Most who followed Dokken in the 80's probably were dissapointed when they broke up. Dokken's last album was probably their best work (Back for the Attack). What was becoming evident from that album was Georged Lynch's influence taking hold and Dokken music getting a little meaner. When George left to start LynchMob, it was expected he would stay with the popular formula and stay in the Dokken style. What happened was what makes good albums great and good bands better. George hooked up with Oni Logan, a very strong voice and edgy writer, and created "Wicked Sensation". What you get with "Wicked Sensation" is a blues driven back drop with mysterious waves flowing in and out. "River of Love" drives you with blues and "She evil, but she's Mine" along with "For a Million Years" takes you on a mysterious middle eastern magic carpet ride. Unbelieveable match with Oni and George make's this album one of the best early 90's rock album that stays true to Rock. No "fluff" or "i hate my life and my parents" music that killed rock in the 90's. Put on a headset, close your eyes and you will be taken somewhere far away.

looking for dokken?don't look hear.when i heard dokken was breaking up,and george was forming his own band named lynch mob(very predictable) i thought that it would be even more intense guitar playing than before,especially after a 2 year hiatus,i even thought there might be another instrumental too!wrong ;he came back with a blues rock based fun in the sun kind of band ,''contrary to the cover''his guitaR playing actually has diminished not improved.then i heard,and bought time will tell by fifth angel,udo-faceless world,king diamond -conspiricy,and dokken up from the ashes,''who stayed true to form,and the istrumental cd defense mechanizms,buy michael harris.that year i found 5 guitarists better than my favorite axxeman mr.scary,especially mathias dieth.even though george was an la. guitarist,unlike steve vai,eddie van halen,and warren di matini,his guitar playng was mysterious,and really gothic in nature.then,i saw the video river of love,quak......quak quak quak quak.i lost interest very quik

I have know Oni since '87. I watched him progress from South Florida local clubs to this insane sounding album. The Lynch albums after Wicked Sensation are sub par in comparison. Read more
