3 stars Back in '89 Jan was asked as a stand-in for the Night of the Guitar festival. He became the best and the organizer gave him chance to made this record. With only a bass player and a drummer he made an album with a lot of different styles. It was one of his most accessible records, so it brought him back in the Dutch album charts. ( the last time was the '85 Focus album, which was the first since Live at Montreux.) For me the album contains some strong tracks like Shame on You and Prima Donna. Seems to me Akkerman goes Satriani if you here the music of Bonnaville. For experienced prog listeners there's reason enough to call some songs elevator-music; but for a bigger audience it's easier to step in the world of Akkerman. Two songs from Heartware on this album: My Pleasure (in my eyes excessive) and Akkerman's Sombrero (Lost and Found.)
