Review

The voice of Vandenberg, Bert Heerink returns to the melodic rock scene with his new solo album "Better yet". It´s good to hear that Heerink´s voice is still in fine shape and it truly suits this kind of AOR-ish pop/rock really good. Now don´t expect anything like Vandenberg´s guitar oriented hard rock back in the 80´s, the songs on "Better yet" are 80´s influenced but they lean more towards the British AOR scene. This album has a few highlights like "Panic attack", "Can´t make me" and "Significance" but the rocker "All fired up" is quite average I´m afraid. Tracks like "Falling down" and "April" are solid AOR, another good song with a cool groove is "Restless heart" that bring thoughts to soundtrack albums of the 80´s. If you want to hear more of Heerink´s voice, check out the track "Shame on you" on the 2nd Voices of Rock album "High and mighty".
