With Back for the Attack, Dokken's fourth album, they continued to allow their catchy guitar melodies to highlight the record, rather than any of the lyrics and/or songwriting. The band sounds tighter than they ever have before, and Don Dokken and George Lynch remain at the top of their game. While the songs on the album fail to be as catchy as "In My Dreams" or "Just Got Lucky," they remain fun and enjoyable. Back for the Attack certainly isn't Dokken's greatest album, yet it remains a worthwhile listen -- unfortunately, however, it was their last enjoyable studio release.
