While many metal bands of that time were about hair spray, hype, and attitude, Lynch was a real rock and roller, whose career included a Grammy nomination for his guitar work. While this was clear on the Dokken albums, it stands out even more on this album.
While it was a really great album, it's 1990 release, as metal was poised to begin it's decline and self-destruction, destined it for relative obscurity. Had it come out in say 1986 or 1987, it likely would have done much better.
Appreciated or not, it was a great album. While the album showcased Lynch's creativity with solid musicianship, it didn't simply become a showcase for Lynch's guitar work, or an oversized ego, as some did when leaving bands to pursue solo careers.
Favorite songs on the album? No Bed of Roses, River of Love, Sweet Sister Mercy and the title track, Wicked Sensation.
If you're on the road or have something which gives you the time to commit to listening to the entire album at one setting, then I recommend this highly. If you don't check it out, it's your loss.
