"Arguably the finest cabaret singer in recent times…. shows real soul: it's quirky, intelligent cabaret music of the highest order." The Rough Guide To Cult Pop
"Jungr, whose mastery of jazz and cabaret's vocal arts is undisputed, has shifted her focus to the songs of the rock era. With reverent respect to Cole Porter, this music is the North American songbook's climax, revealed by its greatest interpreter." The Independent 5 *****
