Took me awhile to get into BFTA after ULAK which I loved after the first listen and still do I thought Back was a little too long and the songs too samey at the time, but over the yeats it really started to grow on me. It's my tnird favorite of theirs overall, but over the last few years has become my "go to" Dokken album.

The Rock Candy reissue improves on it by adding Back for the Attack as a bonus track. Always loved that song and could never understand why it was left off to begin with.
