Nah, Terry only great songs - pure perfection, a clear 6 on the dice!

1. Back For The Attack
2. Under Lock & Key
3. Tooth And Nail
4. Erase The Slate
5. Hell To Pay
6., Lightning Strikes Again
7. Dysfunctional
8. Long Way Home
9. Broken Bones
10. Breaking The Chains
11. Shadowlife

Lightning could have been competing for 4th spot if it weren't for the vocals....
Erase The Slate, Hell To Pay and Lightning Strikes are all sadly overlooked albums, and Dysfunctional is the one for me that has been falling through the cracks a little during the years, in other words I wouldn't rate is high today as I used to back in the 90's or early this millennium. But both Dysfunctional and Long Way Home are pretty strong albums, just not as strong as the ones rated higher. Broken Bones is actually better than I remembered when I played it last week, still I wouldn't call it a milestone in the bands discography. Breaking The Chains is about a band finding it's footing, style and experimenting to find their sound and identity as well as honing the songwriting skills. Shadowlife has it's moments, but undoubtedly their weakest effort - and also a bit of a sellout as far as most of the identity flew out the door on that one.

Rating Up From The Ashes among the Dokken albums might be fruitful considering the style of music, and a stunning album it is - but for me it wouldn't be more logical to do include UFTA than it is to include War & Peace or Lynch Mob.... yeah I'm a purist, I know
