AllMusic Review by

The reunited Dokken recorded the acoustic One Live Night during their 1995 tour in an attempt to cash in on the "unplugged" fad of the '90s. Unfortunately, most of the group's material isn't well suited to this setting -- after all, Dokken were heavy metal arena rockers, writing big bombastic choruses with crunching chords. Dedicated fans will find versions of "Tooth and Nail," "Into the Fire," and "Alone Again" intriguing, and the same might be said for the band's covers of the Beatles' "Nowhere Man" and Emerson, Lake & Palmer's "From the Beginning" -- but One Live Night is only a curiosity.
