“Moon and Aries: perfekter Synth Pop mit herrlichen Vocals. Kurzer Hand höre ich in das Stück rein und ich muss sagen mit eben mal nur kurz anspielen ist es nicht getan, zu gut das Intro zu SNEAK PREVIEW und noch besser die Vocals. Die musikalische Umsetzung Romantic Synth Pop in Perfektion könnte und darf man es ohne weiteres titulieren. Jordana Moon und Tom Aries zeigen erneut auf zu was sie fähig sind und was es braucht um im Genre Synth Pop zu reüssieren. “Moon and Aries”: das sind die 80er brillant interpretiert in den 2020ern.” (NENESBUTLERPRESENTS MUSIC REVIEW)
