"Her ability to plainly communicate who she is and where she's at is a coveted goal most artists, rich or poor, spend their entire careers trying to reach. She strips back and reveals Fifi Rong; all her strengths, all her weaknesses... and she isn't afraid to say how she feels about that either."
"Her strengths lie in both her singing and producing and the future looks bright for this independent star in the making. Wrong is a true, underground, electronica album for underground electronica fans. Enjoy!"
