All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Legend has it after a failed audition with mega-group Thin Lizzy, Adrian Vandenberg went back to the drawing board and decided to start his own band. Poised with an axe to grind and several hard rock influences easily spotted from a mile away, Vandenberg and his band of gypsies were poised to take over the hard rock scene with their 1982 debut. Overall, Vandenberg is a fiery testament to Vandenberg's skill as a guitarist. He shreds with the best of them, taking cues from Hendrix, Page, and a little bit of Tony Iommi. Of course there are the gratuitous moments of guitar acrobatics "Wait" and the obligatory power ballad "Burning Heart" but that really doesn't detract too ...

    Dutch guitar-virtuoso

    Dutch hard-rockers Vandenberg were a lot more than another imitation of Van Halen. First of all, guitarist Adrian van den Berg had a musical talent far beyond many of his contemporaries. Secondly, vocalist Bert Heerink was a real gem. Add to that a handful of really good songs, and there is no denying this album deserved a lot more success. Highlights includes melodic rocker "Lost in a City" and atmospheric ballad "Burning Heart". The band recorded another two albums but this one is their best. Driving force Adrian van den Berg later left the band to join Whitesnake during their hugely successful "1987"-tour. Recommended debut!
