ROCK E ZINE (NL), march 2001

I don’t get Dutch material to review very often. And if future material sounds like this I’d like to keep it like that. China White is not all bad, but it’s been ages since I heard a singer sound as goofy as Don Feltges on this record. His theatrical singing must fit in somewhere but definitely not on this album. There’s a few good thing going on here too though. I like the keyboards a lot. And some of the riffs and melodies are worthwhile. Even the overall sound is o.k. (not more than that though). These guys need to make up their minds. As far as I’m concerned they should stick to the ‘lighter’ tracks such as the opening song "Elevation Ticket" or "Foolin". It’s the louder tracks that provoke Feltges into silliness. If this had been an instrumental album it wouldn’t have been half bad and if Feltges would use his natural voice and behave for a bit it would sound lots better. After all the other musicians (Peter Cox – guitar, Paul Roefs – bass, Rolf Vossen, keyboards and Hans in’t Zand – drums) aren’t doing a bad job. Especially Vossen’s keyboards are pretty cool. I’m not wasting more time on this. I hope these guys will move towards more poppy material. That’s what sounds best on this album anyway. (Eef Vink)
