PROGRESSIEF (NL), februari 2001

What strikes most while listening to the second album of Dutch band Chinawhite is singer Don Feltges. His expressive, somewhat raw vocals give the band an own identity. A man with a lot of talent. Chinawhite does not stick to one style. Some numbers tend towards melodic metal, others more clearly move towards progmetal. Trademark seem the catchy choruses. I think Chinawhite will definetly shine live. Especially up-tempo rockers In my mind , Foolin’ and the powerful No fear of the dark are songs that will go down well on stage. But the semi-ballad Permanent Vacation is the absolute hightlight to me. Mainly because the vocals are superb and show once more the versatility of singer Don. Also on the instrumental part the band knows what it is doing. This is shown during the longer instrumental parts in songs like Elevation ticket and Changes. It is strange that a group like Chinawhite still has no contract. This doesn’t prohibit the production being very decent en pretty powerfull. Chinawhite once again proves that Holland houses enough talent. (joost boleij)
