arolyn Wonderland is being praised unanimously for her new album ‘Peace Meal’ (Bismeaux Records) that finds her collaborating with producers Larry Campbell, Ray Benson and the Monkees’ Michael Nesmith.

Critics are heralding the album for capturing the high energy of Wonderland’s electric live shows and displaying the raw talent that has made her a legend of Texas, and a huge hit in performances across the US and abroad. Check out what critics are saying about Wonderland’s brilliant ‘Peace Meal’:

“Texas’ blues machine [Carolyn Wonderland] churns out a keeper.” – USA Today

“Relaxed, accomplished and roadhouse-dirty, “Peace Meal” is the sound of a veteran artist who knows exactly who she is, playing straight to her considerable strengths.” – Newark Star-Ledger

“The greatest Southern blues voice of all time, part whiskey, part wolf-mother in heat.” – Houston Press

“She can wail with the best of them.” – All Music Guide

“I can’t decide whether I like her raspy, lush-toned vocals or soulful and skillful guitar playing better, but luckily I don’t have to choose!” – Guitar World

“Live, the woman reaches down deep and essentially turns herself inside out. Her music will do the same to you.” - Rochester City Newspaper

“Establishes her as an artist to be reckoned with.” – About.com

“Wonderland can perform enough vocal gymnastics to scare an American Idol contestant and play enough hot licks to make guitar freaks weep with joy. But everything she and her band do serves the songs. That makes for a full-meal deal.” – San Antonio Express-News
