AARDSCHOK (NL), november 2000

After 3 cassettes and a minicd the first "real" album of Dutch band Chinawhite has arrived. And I must say we have gained a very nice Dutch rock band. Chinawhite perform progressive rock, with a twist of AOR. "Breathe Fire" contains 11 songs, of which the 5 longer ones are clearly the best. Especially the musical variation in these tracks, for example "Elevation Ticket" is very positive. Also the guitarplaying of Peter Cox is magnificent and reaches it’s top in the great instrumental track "Infatuation". "In my Mind" is the heaviest (Uriah Heep sounding) track, and the present (ofcourse) power ballad is called "Permanent Vacation". "N.T.T." and "The Entity Returns" are 2 keyboard interludes and "Foolin" is a real Dutch rock track; meant to sing along to. All in all a succesful product with a few minor details, like the long-winded "My one and Only" or the sometimes monotonous or chaotic vocals like during "Losers in the End". Furthermore nothing but praise. (Martien Koolen)
