New DOKKEN video - Gypsy

I like the song! It's fast, heavy, melodic, and the band sounds tight. Like the vibe and the video also. I feel that we will get a good Dokken album soon.

Sounds waaaaaaay too similar to "Fugitive". Not that that's a terribly bad thing in this case. Good song, but not great.

Well, I do not hear much similarity between "Gypsy" and "Fugitive". If anything, it reminds me of Sunless Days, an underrated post heyday rocker, from Long Way Home(2002) album.

Color me surprised. This was actually a really good and well-crafted song!

I've heard worse from Dokken. But that paper-cutout "Flash animation" blows. Video looks like it was put together over a weekend by a high school freshman with magic markers

I was impressed... digging the song after the first listen. Hearing Don sing it live will be another question, but this was good. Not adding it to a playlist yet, but wouldn't skip it either.

The video is forgettable, but good on Dokken. It gives posters on here who don't like anything after 1992 something to live for!

It sounds... like a Dokken song. And I mean that as a compliment. In a good range for Don, too. A winner.

If Don can phone this stuff in and it sounds alright, why the hell cant he do it with Lynch and Pilson?

End Machine makes music that sounds 10x better, but Robert Mason just doesn't have "it".

Sounds immediately like Dokken and the vocal was good modern day Don.

The chorus reminds me of Up from the Ashes from his first solo record but it lacks the warmth of that. Sorry for being stuck in the 80's and early 90's but that's how I remember these guys sounding.
