"German CD Review"

Laura Jane ist eigentlich die “Sweet Laura Jane” – der Name ist Programm und das Programm sieht für unsere Laura den Weg gen Pop-Star-Heaven vor…“To My Planet, Boo“ ist der erste Schritt in diese, und natürlich die einzig richtige, Richtung und führt die Süße mit einer durchaus (musikalisch) provokanten Compact-Disc den Trend-Scouts dieser Welt vor – ein Debut, das zunächst von gesundem Selbstbewusstsein zeugt, wagt sie es doch ihre Duftmarken fernab der vermeintlichen Konkurrenz zu setzen.
Nach eigenem Bekunden lautet das Motto „Sade meets Björk“ – meiner unmaßgeblichen Meinung nach, zeigt sie exemplarisch auf, wie Madonna heute gern klingen würde, um sich auch 2005 als Wegweiserin des Pop zu beweisen. Diese Art der musikalischen Abenteuer hat Laura Jane natürlich nicht allein unternommen, aber sie war es, die sich die passige Begleitung auswählte – Winston Black, seines Zeichens einer der wagemutigen Jäger und Sammler des Eklektik-Pop leistete wertvollste Produzenten-Arbeit und fügte die losen Enden der diversesten musikalischen Stränge zu einem sehr erfrischenden Ganzen. „Laura Left“ bietet mit seiner R&B/World Mixtur sogleich potentielle Top40 Kost, ein erster Eindruck, den die gewiefte Laura sogleich mit dem heftigen Rhythmen und dem freien Saxofonspiel von „Summertime In the City“ gründlich widerlegt. „The Call“ wird vom Einsatz des Gilmar Gomez Percussion Orchestra geprägt und „Dear Rita“ ist ein zickiger Schieber im Nostalgie-Gewand, um dann in „To My Planet, Boo“ den ganz knappen Kylie-Dress überzustreifen – ein Thema, dass Sweet Laura natürlich aus dem FF beherrscht und demnach in „Lonely Sunshine“ auch den Schlussakkord unter einen unzweifelhaft netten und kurzweiligen Trip in die nähere Zukunft des Pop setzt.

"Laura Jane - To My Planet, Boo!"

"Contemporary soul from Laura Jane - a west coast diva who gets some great production help here from Black Ball Universe! Laura's got a vocal style that's sweet and light - but nicely held down to earth through an assortment of heavier beats and keys that give the album a strong contemporary crossover feel. Titles includ the glistening "Summertime in the City", which has some nice changed-up rythyms - plus the tracks "Laura Left", "The Call", "The Journey", "Domino Effect" and "The Buzz".

Forever" as the two artists . . . . . "

"Enrique Iglesias Seven World Tour"

"Things got steamy when backing vocalist Laura joined in on COULD I HAVE THIS KISS FOREVER which combined with her competent voice and bootylicious body (Enrique slipped his hand inside her sarong) made the evening hotter than it already was. Much screaming and yelling form teenage/old/young boys." - MTV India Review
