2 stars One of his worst records. There's hardly fury in Jan's playing an most of the songs fail to amuse me. From the beginning of the album I get a feeling of "hey, I can play this music on the background, when I'm reading a book." He succeded to make a muzak version of Fleetwood Mac's Albatross. The only real good song on the album is Love is Uneven; it keeps you awake for eight minutes long. And the closing song,the titletrack, isn't so bad after all. Style description seems to me blues- and jazzrock. In my opinion only worth buying if you want to collect all his records; however , the album didn't fail to reach the Dutch charts. It must be one of his best sold records! 1,5 star becomes 2 because it is Akkerman.
