Doro – All We Are – The Fight (Locomotive Records)

Obviously this is some sort of stop-gap release, the usually prolific Doro putting together her most popular solo and Warlock tunes for a five-song, five video EP. The only song that really broke Doro (and Warlock) is “All We Are” and it’s right up front, cheesy video and all, but man, Doro was a hottie (and still is, yes) back then, so maybe that’s all that is needed for this EP to work.

Additional tunage includes the pretty atypical 80’s metal radio rocker “Thunderspell” and the Zeppelin classic “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” which was done ad naseum by Great White in the late 80’s. Regardless, ‘ole Doro puts a soft, tender touch to this standard arena rock ballad.

The accompanying videos are cool to watch, with Doro and here mile-long blonde locks flowing in the wind, taking on the streets in “All We Are,” while her romantic side gets a nod for “On My Own.”

Again, this is for tried-and-true Doro fans only, which at this stage (especially in the States), might be a far less significant number than her glory Warlock days. Fun stuff, hardly essential, but fun.
