|Sleaze Glam at its worst!!! The instrumental makes me throw up! It's just like Winger, but even worse!!

|This sounds NOTHING like Winger Hardalhuxo! Wicked Sensation is a great tune. The others are all so-so.

|Dont know what happen on their second album but this is a classic ass kickin rock n roll album all the way.
||Date: December 15, 2001 at 7:05|
|One of late 80's rock pillars. Great melodic rock. Full of hits. Robert mason would have been a better singer on this. Oni is ok but not as good live. Roberts 10 times better.
||Date: December 15, 2001 at 15:59|
|It´s a crap album.... i dont know how some people that likes a good hard rock can listen this.... poor sleaze glam
||Date: January 24, 2002 at 15:44|
|Dragonfly said: 'Great melodic rock'. If he likes, it's ok... but don't ever say it's melodic!!! I coudn't find any lack of melodic noise in this horrible album! Fuckin' Sleaze Glam it is!
||Date: April 2, 2002 at 8:52|
|Emotional rock 'n roll with a ballsy kick.'George Lynch's' finger prints are all over this album! Nice to see a band get along and blend together to make a very balanced and whole unit.'Lynch Mob' containing the very guts of 'Dokken',has unleashed it's melodic power on this album!!9 out of 10.
||Date: April 8, 2002 at 1:16|
|Decent if unexceptional bluesy hard rock. Vocals are nothing special, and overall the album is a little slow. 'WIcked Sensation' is great though.
||Date: April 8, 2002 at 20:35|
|This is a must buying. I love this class metal/hard blues cd. The title track was the battle cry of my company in 1990. Oni Logan sings very well here. Is it true thhat he is come back with George Lynch?
||Date: April 19, 2002 at 10:27|
|I dig this cd. Good straight forward rock-n-roll. Badlands did this kind of stuff though a million times better. Oni Logan has a killer voice here but have you ever seen this guy live?? One of the most boring, uninspiring frontman you will ever see grace a stage and that's too bad with a voice like that. Watching paint dry is more inspiring than seeing him just a snore away from actually dozing on stage.
||Date: May 4, 2002 at 20:08|
|While little Georgie was out showing off in his new little band of posers called the 'LYNCH MOB', Don was out actually making GOOD music on his 1st solo release, 'Up From The Ashes'. Lynch WAS a great player, he is also a child and a self-glorifying asshole. Listen to 'Dysfunctional' or 'Shadowlife' and hear how he sold out to the 90s and screwed Dokken's fans over when the band re-united. I am glad he left Dokken and is never coming back again. 'WS' isn't good enough to wipe my ass with. Shit.

|This c.d. Kicks ass ,it's alot more groove oriented than Dokken yet Lynch's trademark riffs are ever present.Oni Logan and Robert Mason both are great singers however I prefer Oni's voice with this band( I know some of you don't).If you do like Oni's voice....then check out a band called 'Cold Sweat'.Their c.d.'Break Out'has a guy wailing away who's a deadringer for Oni.
||Date: May 15, 2002 at 1:34|
|One thing I left out: Mick Brown is a great drummer; it is too bad he had to go on playing with Lynch, but you have to make your money somehow, right? Mick is cool in my book.
||Date: May 17, 2002 at 10:10|
|I have to agree with you dokken6008, Mick Brown is awesome. I think he and Blaus Elias are underrated. I wasn't really crazy about this album. A song or two interested me, but that's about it.
||Date: May 20, 2002 at 8:44|
|Best 'released' album ever (until Violet's Demise gets released). Best guitarist ever George Lynch and best singer ever Oni Logan, how can you go wrong. Listen to the solo in 'For A Million Years' and not get shivers down your spine I dare you! Every track on this album is fantastic, yes it may 'suffer' from the era it was released in but I say it is still fresh today, solo's are unfashionable, says who? It has groove, it has a darkness that no other glam rock album has, oh and it has ONI!!!

|Great Cd, River of Love and No Bed Of Roses are my favorites, but I like their second album with Mason, is far way better, excepting Tangled in The Web.
|From: Mr. Scary
||Date: July 22, 2002 at 5:24|
|I'm a huge Dokken fan but this has nothing to do with Dokken. Take it for what it is-a good bluesy hard rock record. I heard that Oni left Lynch Mob because he hated to perform live...pretty strange if true. Great music to hear in a strip club, does a rock band need a better compliment??
||Date: August 12, 2002 at 10:35|
|this was Lynch's way of showing the world he didnt need dokken and he proved that with an exclamation point!!
||Date: August 12, 2002 at 23:32|
|Mason (singer on second album) may have had more technical ability, but nowhere near the vocal charisma and character that Oni had on this album. Unfortunately, Oni had a limited range - but this album shows it off to it's best. And George - jesus - he's just incredible. Here, he perfects his trademark pseudo-horror flick guitar wailing and makes all his Dokken stuff (except Mr. Scary) pale by comparison. His playing is lush and scary. An awesome album for the genre.
||Date: August 27, 2002 at 16:29|
|As a Dokken fan, let me say this: 'Mr. Scary' is one of the most overrated instrumentals known to mankind. I mean 'Switch 625' is a classic of sorts, but nobody seems to give a shit about that tune. You George Lynch fanatics......
||Date: August 28, 2002 at 2:58|
| i don't believe that there's a weak moment on this disc...i always liked it especially songs like 'she's evil but she's mine' and 'river of love'... cool album email@example.com
|From: Steve T
||Date: September 4, 2002 at 7:27|
|I'm glad to hear someone else that dislikes Mr Scary. I thought it was a mess and I have never liked it. Switch 625? Yep....great instrumental.
||Date: September 12, 2002 at 3:01|
|Yo, Steve, I still think 'Mr. Scary' is bitchin', but 'Switch 625' hits the spot. Leppard have lost all of the great Steve Clark influence...
|From: Steve T
||Date: September 12, 2002 at 18:30|
|Dokken6008...I have never been able to get 'into' Mr.Scary. Dunno why....I think it's too long maybe. I always thought that instrumentals that worked ( Coast To Coast, Into The Arena etc) sounded like songs but without lyrics. Mr.Scary, however, just sounds like an excuse to play a 4 minute guitar solo. Yeuuuuch. George is a fantastic player but Mr.Scary doesn't show his skills ...at least to me. I also semmed to have missed all the fun here. Someone using your name in vain buddy?

||Date: November 5, 2002 at 10:28|
|Para mi este es el mejor disco de hard rock que existe. Asi de claro. Hay que decir que no es un disco que entre a la primera, pero por otra parte lo escuchas hoy en dia y suena totalmente fresco y creo que hay pocos discos de los que se pueda decir eso.Es un album que te pone la piel de gallina. La voz de Oni Logan es perfecta para el estilo de composiciones de George Lynch. Si os gusta el HARD ROCK oscuro y con feeling no os lo perdais.
|From: Trick Taylor
||Date: February 4, 2003 at 19:00|
|DOKKEN6008- I have never actually heard somebody choose Don over George. Are you related to him or something? Lynch Mob avioded the Ritalin induced hyper pop-metal formula and focused on creating lush blues inspired mood metal. I think Oni Logan just shines, like a mini-Coverdale in spots. Some of the tunes are unrealized fillers, but most are spot-on rockers that don't insult your itelligence. This one still gets play. I will avoid responding to the Beau Nasty fan. Flame on!!!

|it's better than rap and new screaming crap metal where you dont need to sing, just scream like a idiot, wicked sensation is a great song
||Date: March 28, 2003 at 18:47|
|This album has some positives, but not to many. This album didn't do to much for my listening glands! And I expected a much better vocalist, some people mentioned a guy named Mason. Well I'll take there word for it. Rock on people.
||Date: April 15, 2003 at 20:14|
|'She's evil but she's Mine' is a great tune. Man, if you could have only seen them perform that live with Bassist Anthony Esposito's long, long, hair blowing in the wind. One of my greatest live metal moments ever.
||Date: May 31, 2003 at 22:52|
|Forget about any DOKKEN comparisons. Despite the fact that LYNCH MOB had 2 DOKKEN members in its ranks, they were very different musically. LYNCH MOB's debut is an appealing slab of sleazy hard rock. There's nothing about it that's gonna make your jaw drop, but it is a fine album of its type. Some really good songs with minimal filler. Their 2nd release was ok, but not up to the level of the debut.
||Date: June 6, 2003 at 22:33|
|Suffice to say that Lynch's style of guitar is my all-time favorite. His use of flat 5th's, chromotics and legato techniques all combine to create the style that is his. Whether you like it or not, whether you like him or Don or not, whether you prefer Oni or Robert on vocals, it cannot be denied that Dokken and Lynch Mob are in the same class and broad genre and that Don, George, Oni and Robert are all very talented. They also have ups and downs. I've seem them all in concert and I have....
||Date: June 6, 2003 at 22:40|
|...witnessed each of them deliver truly inspiring performances as well as completely average or even downright poor ones. To put it in pespective, consider this: What artist can be heard on average radio or MTV today that comes close to delivering a sound comparing with either Lynch Mob or Dokken? I don't know about the rest of you, but to get the guitar tone, the hughe rhythms and the soaringly powerful vocals of MelodicMetal, I go to my own CD collection, not the current scene.
|From: King James
||Date: June 7, 2003 at 16:50|
|In my opinion, Lynch Mob doesn't compare to Dokken. That's mostly due to the fact that the guitar solos were recorded poorly on this CD. They're low and hard to hear compared to the rest of the music in the songs. In Dokken the solos really screamed out over everything else, the way I like it. I agree with MelodicMetalGod; nothing on the radio today can compare with true heavy metal. May the music of Skid Row, Nitro, Vinnie Vincent, and all the other metal bands live forever!

|Wicked sensation and its all i want are the must emotionally blues rock what i ever heard before, Oni Logan no tiene madre, como canta!, lástima que lo corrieron
||Date: December 4, 2003 at 21:48|
|in this realise there is a great sleaze-class-metal.lynch shines with his asiatic speed solos and oni logan has a great hot voice!great performance of rhythm section by mick brown.a must!!
||Date: December 14, 2003 at 0:36|
|one of the best no doubt.george lynch is the man.every song rocks and mick browns drumming is so heavy on this cd.they really made an awesome cd with wicked sensation.george lynch kicks major butt.i wish this group would get back together and rock in 2004.awesome cover art.
||Date: January 5, 2004 at 20:49|
|At what point do record execs use their minds and strike out after this style of music again? Feels like it's right there again, waiting to be found. Even though George is 50 or something and on steroids, he can still nail it with the tone and the playing. Sure was a shock to see what looked like Ahhhhhhnold Schwarznegger on stage a few years back, when I expected to see thin little old George. Why has no one commented on his drastic physical change? His playing still kills!
||Date: May 5, 2004 at 0:25|
|I remember that this came out at about the same time as up from the ashes. And at that time I thought it sucks, but it does not. There are some strong songs on this, but there are some floppers too, but worth owning for sure, if you like dokken or lynch. Rain is my favorite, but river of love and all i want are cool too. I played the guitar with this cover on it and it played like a ferrari. GREAT GUITAR!!
||Date: May 19, 2004 at 18:57|
|Great!!Just great!George you are simply the best!I remember when i listened this one back in 1990!Justlike a punch in my teeth!

||Date: June 27, 2004 at 20:34|
|Don Dokken's solo album was great, so would George Lynch be able to match it? Not quite, as he goes for more of a harder sound than Dokken. Still the results are very good with "Wicked Sensation" and "River Of Love". 7/10
||Date: August 17, 2004 at 17:39|
|I bought this album for £1 in a second-hand store. Possibly the best £1 I will ever spend! It's utterly brilliant by anyone's standard, and puts a lot of more famous 'classic' albums to shame. There is not one weak track on this. As much as I love Dokken, it's clear George had the talent
||Date: August 18, 2004 at 2:25|
|This is just a great album. 'No bed of roses' and the earth shattering (Well, at least it shattered mine anyway) 'Through these eyes' - what a pair of songs! Two of the best of the genre! And ones like 'Sweet sister mercy' and the title track don't do the album any harm either. A couple of fillers, but Through these eyes I can only see as far as those two songs I mentioned first! Love it!
||Date: September 27, 2004 at 9:51|
|this is a CLASSIC and one of the best things mighty george lynch has EVER recorded. some people here were sying the album has nothing original to give. are you kidding? listen to the sound. listen to the songs. listen to the guitar tone. this is a CLASSIC that differs totally from stuff like DOKKEN. a must-have. a gift.
||Date: September 27, 2004 at 19:58|
|I wouldn't go so far as calling this a classic. Don Dokken's is more classic status than this. "Wicked Sensation" and "River Of Love" are the best tunes on here although "Rain" is pretty good too. The rest are pretty average. Nothing earth shattering but a competent album that can be bought pretty cheap.
||Date: September 30, 2004 at 1:07|
|Great cd, RAIN kicks ass!!!! George might not show all his talent on this one, but he sure knows how to make a great hard rock album
||Date: November 9, 2004 at 23:34|
|This one proved who was really responsible for dokken's sound. This was truly a great album from start to finish. I liked Oni's voice the best out of the 2 singers. Robert got the job because he sounded a lot like Oni. George could have called this Back For The Attack part 2. If this would have came out a few years earlier than it did it would have been a huge seller.
||Date: November 30, 2004 at 18:02|
|Good album but George has never been as good as the Dokken days.
||Date: December 2, 2004 at 14:18|
|i totally disagree with Hardalhuxo....Winger sucks??? are you crazy man...that band rocks...pure 80s hard rock at its best....and what about wicked sensation or river of love...great quitar..
||Date: February 1, 2005 at 12:47|
|this is one of those cds that just destroyed 80's metal.it sounds so mid '90's,HUGELLY DISSAPOINTING for fans of Dokken and George Lynch.to me he proves with this attempt that he is one of the biggest assholes on the planet.Dokken is one of my 2 most favorite bands(if not the most favorite).this is why there's no pop-metal today,those who fought for it,just betrayed it...listen to Don's - Up From The Ashes(the last true Dokken spirited cd).Norum and White will make you forget '90's Lynch...shame

||Date: February 23, 2005 at 23:51|
|Me again, I listened to up from the ashes again the other day. The only thing it is missing is Lynch. Don's album just does not kick ass. Wicked Sensation is one of my favorites of all time. The songwriting, vocals, musicianship, was all awesome. Look back at the writing credits and see who wrote all of Dokken's best songs. It was Lynch/Pilson. This CD blows away anything Don ever did on his own. Don't get me wrong, I still like Dokken's stuff, he just lost his edge without George.
||Date: February 23, 2005 at 23:52|
|This is also one of the best album covers of all time. Great artwork

|Excelent CD, one of the first in this format that I bought.
||Date: June 28, 2005 at 8:43|
|THE FIRST TWO CDS ARE GREAT BUT I PREFER ONI LOGAN ON VOCALS!
||Date: November 26, 2005 at 18:39|
|Wouldn't consider George Lynch as one of the greatest. Though I love his playing, a definite virtuoso. Have read this story that he was very affected (emotionally?, psychologically?) that this little band called Mammoth in the late 70s got signed first and became huge though this band opened for them when his was one of the biggest in LA. He never really thought that there's this guy who was better than him. His name was Eddie Van Halen.
|From: Remastered Reason
||Date: January 16, 2006 at 21:53|
|It's amazing how many bands are classified as great. While this isn't a classic, not many guitarists can hold a candle next to Lynch. Worth checking out for a handful of tunes like "Wicked Sensation", "River Of Love", & "Sister Mercy", otherwise keep rockin' with Dokken!!!
||Date: September 30, 2006 at 20:08|
|lynch mob kicks ass oni logan is a good singer, i love the songs wicked sensation, sweet sister mercy, she's evil but she's mine, river of love.
||Date: November 4, 2006 at 19:16|
|This is one kick ASS album I love the production, first track I loved from the off. Took a while to get into the rest of the album but once there OW it's good. I prefer this to DOKKEN never really liked DOKKEN...just not my thing. The song's are a bit lacking love stuff like Mud Slick, Saint's N Sinner's, Hardline that sort of rock. Great production cool riff's kick ass tune's-im happy...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!
||Date: June 13, 2007 at 15:10|
|wow!! this is a kick ass rock album one of my favorite. in my opinion george did his best work on this album and don dokken did his best in "up from the ashes" . i´m not saying that dokken was´nt good! it only shows that these 2 guys don´t match.
|From: True Believer
||Date: July 13, 2009 at 7:33|
|7,5/10, IMO. Musically it is just OK, but it contains few fillers (Dance of The Dogs, Rain). The guitar vibe on this album is almost identical as in the Cold Sweat album. I think the latter has more catchy songs.
|From: hair metal again
||Date: October 4, 2010 at 9:44|
|hair metal masterpiece by LYNCH MOB with amazing groove and style.this is perfect from every aspect:it has excellent songs like "wicked sensation","through these eyes","no bed of roses" and "she s evil but she s mine" etc,it has astonishing guitarwork and great vocs by oni.no need to say much this is a must have
|From: the rocker
||Date: October 4, 2010 at 10:13|
|I agree. Very good cd. All the songs you mentioned plus River of love! His first solo cd (after the Dokken split)plus Don Dokken's solo cd are both great!
||Date: February 2, 2011 at 16:22|
|I like lynch mob's first two albums a lot. this one has more tracks than their following album but for me some songs here are better.standouts here: wicked sensation, hell child, she's so evil but she's mine and for a million years. great bluesy melodic hard rock/heavy metal album.
|From: rick kerch vzla
||Date: April 18, 2011 at 18:15|
|Pretty good solid debut album!!!...pure hard rocking tracks with the unique style injected by the very talented George Lynch...best shots 4 me are "Dance Of The Dogs" & "No Bed Of Roses"...but also some other goodies are "Wicked Sensation","River Of Love","Hell Child" & "She's Evil But She's Mine"( )...91/100
|From: Doghouse Reilly
||Date: May 17, 2011 at 18:18|
|More bluesy than Dokken, but not in any kind of Muddy Waters way at all. Darker and more brooding than Dokken, a little slower and anthemic in a different way, kind of "mysterious," but still semi-hair metal. Oni Logan kinda reminds me of a poor man's Sebastian Bach, and Lynch, of course, shreds all over the place. The three singles the best, but also "Hell Child" and "She's Evil But She's Mine" stand out as highlights. DOn't care for the Stones cover at all.
