== Artistry ===== Music and voice ===
Capristo has published songs in [[English language|English]]; only for the Tabaluga project and the feature film Rapunzel has she sung in German. She also sang the song "Grace" in Italian, although she does not speak that language. A complete production of their songs was used in acoustic versions. Capristo said, "I feel most comfortable with English, because I personally think that my voice sounds at its best. Although German is my native language, I feel more comfortable in English." In addition, she added: "It is very important that I decide my projects."
In a review of the album Grace the music magazine Laut.de wrote: "Grace is a nice debut-intentioned , but which, unfortunately, proves that the chick from Monrose-targeted new style does not get paid on album length. [...] "It Don't Matter" and the acoustic session was the best, without all the trappings actually show her vocal talent." CD Bewertungen.de: "Her fans can look deep into her soul and makes clear that a lot is just smoke and mirrors as well as a "Star" has its problems, is lonely, has been violated."refref The British magazine Popjustice wrote: "We love it in a very deep and pure way, of course, but we were hoping Mandy's album Grace would contain so many extraordinary tunes that we could make one of them a Big Song instead. The Way I Like It gets its time in the sun after all, and that's not a completely bad thing because it is, of course, a cracker.ref
