03. Where The Grass Is Greener
05. Ship of Fools
06. You Are Everything

10. The Tragedy

Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Solitary: “I was initially going to call the music on Don Dokken‘s latest solo offering ‘elevator music’, but even elevator music can have more pep, energy and speed than what Solitary offers. A better description would be ‘massage parlor music’, because if you take Don Dokken‘s vocals out of the mix the remaining musical arrangements sound like some of the dull listless music that you can sometimes hear at a massage parlor. If you take out the music and only keep Dokken‘s vocals, it sounds like he is singing lullabies to a baby.
For fans of the ’80s hard rock era, hoping that Don Dokken takes them back on a nostalgia journey, this is very, very far removed from that. Quite simply, the songs on Solitary should have never seen the light of day or simply been kept in ‘solitary confinement’.”
