International Critics

Joon Wolfsberg wurde zwar in Köln geboren und wuchs in Erfurt auf - klingt aber ziemlich international. Irgendwo zwischen der Jefferson-Airplane-Sängerin Grace Slick, Folkrock-Elementen und ganz viel Joon Wolfsberg..,
—Willy Theobald, [6]

Doch wenn man ihren ins Alt driftenden Gesang und den zwischen abgeklärtem Folk-Rock und in Nostalgie badenden Alternativ-Rock-Sound ihrer Band vernimmt, könnte man meinen, die Dame hätte schon viel mehr hinter sich als zwei Dekaden Leben.
— Ostsee-Zeitung.de , [7]

The Financial Times Deutschland nominated on June 3, 2012 the „Wonderland“ Album as the "Album of the week" and it got the highest rate 5 out 5. [8]
