Tooth And Nail was a huge step forward for Dokken, one a casual listener of the band's debut album would not have thought possible. Electra actually was near to dropping the band but opted to give them one more chance and a fair one at that. Tooth And Nail has a full, arena-ready sound with a slightly rougher guitar tone that really gives it an edge over slicker productions. The songs have also gotten a lot better, with Lynch's highly technical and yet disciplined and tasteful playing really showing why the man has become one of the most celebrated guitar heroes of the era. To the metal-minded ear, this is also the band's most easily likable with the heavy stomp on "When Heaven Comes Down" and a few stabs at speed metal here and there. However, most of the tracks keep to an accessible medium pace the band was best at anyway.

Rating: 8 Great heavy metal classic. A couple of weak moments in "Just Got Lucky" and "Bullets To Spare" but the rest rocks. "Don't Close Your Eyes" and "Into The Fire" are the highlights.
