Heavy Harmonies Review|

|I got this in the mail the other day from the label, and my first reaction was 'Oh shit. I don't wanna hear this.' Of course, this was based on my experience with their last abortion, Smoke This. I'm happy to report that George and company have done a complete 180 from that musical mistake. Even they admit it in the promo copy: 'Gone too are the experimental Nu-metal elements that left many long time Lynch fans scratching their heads.'|
This is heavy-edged hard rock, plain and simple, a 'Dokken for the modern age' if you will.
That being said, don't expect just another Dokken album. This album is MUCH heavier than Dokken (or earlier incarnations of Lynch Mob) ever was. It definitely falls closer to 'heavy metal' than 'hard rock'. All thirteen of these tracks, taken from his career with Dokken and Lynch Mob, have been rerecorded. My take: Kick ass! The versions here have all the glam and polish of their 1980s original forms stripped away, and what is revealed is brute hard rock at its best. A most welcome surprise!!

|I CAN'T WAIT!!! The sound samples sound kickin! I love the idea of old Geore re-inventing the Dokken and Mob classics that may have grown a bit long in the tooth. It is refreshing to see George forging forward while Donald continues to give phoned in bullshit performances with Dokken Mark 5. I also eagerly await the Lynch/Pilson collaboration. It's good to be alive.

|That's a pretty good idea!!! I love it. After all George lynch didn't die with Smoke It! Thanks for the good album.

|Man!!, I've gotta have this!! Robert Mason, you've done it again! He is the best hard rock singer ever. Could someone please tell me if this has been officially released??
||Date: April 20, 2003 at 12:04|
|David, this cd will be out next month. Yes, the sound samples are great. The revised Tooth and Nail is killer!! Can't wait to see these guys live. Been a fan for several years. Trick Taylor, why do you dislike Don Dokken so much? What did he do to you? Lynch Mob got part of their sound from Dokken. Without Don and George playing in Dokken all those years together, there would be no Lynch Mob. Don is one hell of a singer and George is one of the best axe men out there...Why don't you give them bo
||Date: April 20, 2003 at 12:09|
|Trick Taylor...My last sentence did not go through in that last entry...All I am saying is that you should give Don and George both credit considering how far they have both come in their careers.

|I got the Lynch/Pilson Cd 'Wicked Underground' on 4/22/03 (the day it came out).I was so looking forward to this CD, but my expectations were not all that high. Well, this CD didn't even come close to my 'hopefully average' expecations. Bottom Line - HUGE Disappointment. Pilson's voice is good, but was to mellow for these songs. And what about Lynch? C'mon George I know you don't want to do Mr. Scary all over again, but please let loose and play like you can and not be so conservative. BORING!!!

|Mike, I have been looking for that cd. Where did you buy yours? Did you get it online or in a music store cause no one has heard of it. Any heavy dokken songs on this cd? I think Revolution will be well worth the wait.
||Date: May 26, 2003 at 16:20|
|Oh my God! These guys rocked out this past Saturday night. Their new cd shreds, too. One of the greatest shows I have seen in a long time. Really memorable performance. It was the line up from the 2nd cd with the exception of a new drummer. Revolution is a must have for any Lynch Mob/Dokken fan. It's half Lynch Mob/half Dokken songs. They are re-done and heavier than ever!!!!! You will never want to take it out of your cd player once it goes in. Their best to date in my opinion
||Date: May 27, 2003 at 17:38|
|REvolution is a great CD. When Darkness Calls is so much better than the original it's scary (no pun intended). What I would like to see is a battle of the bands. Have Lynch Mob take on these Nu Metal act like Godsmack and Staind. Then we will see who the real men are. George Lynch rules the guitar.
||Date: August 2, 2003 at 14:31|
|Basically this is just a rougher, tougher updated selection of tracks, with a heavier modern rock vibe in place. I quite enjoyed the album – it's a good bit of fun and some of the tracks sound great with the darker, heavier edge to them. A few others don't quite work so well, but take it for what it is and you will get some pleasure out of it.

|I'm a HUGE Dokken fan, so I admit to having some reservations about the Mob doing new versions of Dokken songs...boy was I surprised!The Dokken re-makes are especially good,and there's not a bad song to be found on this disc. 'The Secret' was and is my favorite Lynch Mob song,and the new version still smokes! Whether you're a fan of Lynch Mob, Dokken, or like me, both, pick this one up!

|Ive seen George play live with Dokken and he sounded amazing,so there is no doubt of his guitar prowess,but i went out and got this record and it left a very bad taste in my mouth.Many of these great Dokken classics are butchered by the Mob.The low tunings and tempo changes need not be.
||Date: October 10, 2003 at 13:56|
|This cd sucks big time, in my opinion. The Mob classic songs are ALL butchered with no exception, and even Mason (one of my favourite singers) manages to change the brilliant vocal lines of the first two albums into boring, whiny, depressive laments. Bleah! Slightly better with the Dokken ones, but still a definitely useless, pointless, and plain bad release. Why slaughter the classics in that way? Gice us some new songs, George, without putting 'modern' heavy shit into the old classics...

|Wade, do you mean 'the bomb' or 'a bomb?' Because IMO, it's the latter. The re-worked Dokken stuff is horrendous! If it ain't broke, don't f#*k with it!!

|SOB!!!!! These sound clips are F$cking AMAZING!!!! I stumbled on this site looking for old lynch and dokken tunes. Wow was i surprised when i clicked on the'breaking the chains'link. DAMN, i am still laughing and amazed at how MODERN!! and kick ass this is. I am definately buying this one....... Jinenon@woh.rr.com

|El gran GEORGE, perdió completamente el rumbo, despues de cagarse en DOKKEN y de decir que todo lo que hizo en los 80 era una mierda. Que pedazo de idiota! En este CD destruye las versiones originales de DOKKEN y destruye las de su propia banda!!!. Una total porquería. Que llame por teléfono a los LIMP MIERDIK y se anote como guitarrista de la mierda nu metal!!!!

|I like this band so much.Robert Mason is just outstanding when he does these songs.As for George well he is one great guitarist and these songs sound even better than the originals.Full credit to all the band members.Wicked sensation is just addictive and I can't get this song out of my head.

|A mi este disco me gusta. ¿Sabeis porqué?. Por que adoro estos temas y porque adoro a Alice in Chains y creo que este es el camino que deberia haber seguido George Lynch (en lugar de Smoke This, autentico error) cuando perdió el rumbo en los 90. Ojalá sus nuevos trabajos siguieran la linea de este album, un disco que deberia gustar a los seguidores del Hard Rock menos caduco y obsoleto y que se siguen sintiendo excitados con proyectos y sonidos de este calibre. -Solo para fans-.

|Great renake of dokkn and lynch mob classics, although i found that wicked sensation and river of love are the weak tracks on this one...luved tooth and nail, kick ass solos, same with paris is burning, and breaking the chains sounds even better than the original, Robert Mason kicks ass once again
||Date: November 11, 2004 at 23:01|
|cool package, i like hearing the songs in a different way. I also liked the lyrics changed on Breakin the chains.
||Date: January 16, 2005 at 5:21|
|Hmmm, not to sure of the worth of this one. It is a very good disc as most know many of the awesome songs contained here. They are done with enough of a degree of difference to warrant interest, and it's great to hear Mason's wonderful voice on a few Dokken classics... but I don't know. A good listen, just not essential. I still prefer the originals... Very ballsy sound though.

|George Lynch just BUTCHERED classic DOkken and Lynch Mob tracks. Period. He should have just wrote all new material if he wanted to "change" his style. You don't f*ck with the classics!

|Man I have been a Dokken fan and Lynch Mob fan for years! Grew up listening to Dokken, anyway... just got this CD today and all I have to say is.... amazing! I love the reworkings of old classics like Tooth And Nail, Paris Is Burning, Breaking The Chains and Kiss Of Death. I prefer the original versions but damn, this stuff is still ace. Robert Mason is fucking class A vocalist and shines bright on this album. Lynch's solo work is as always... killer. 'Smoke This' sucked though lol.
||Date: August 6, 2005 at 2:08|
|This is more like it after the horrible "Smoke This" album. This is a bit more raw than their early stuff but still very enjoyable. Eventhough these are remakes of Dokken and Lynch Mob's older songs and I prefer the older ones better I think this is very good. I would rate this album 8/10.
||Date: July 20, 2008 at 21:29|
|'Tooth and Nail' is great and 'Tangled In the Web' isn't bad. Didn't like the remixes of 'Kiss of Death' or 'Wicked Sensation' though.
