Editorial Reviews

The hottest thing in kids' music returns! The Laurie Berkner Band's catchy tunes and joyful lyrics not only earned them a regular role on Jack's Big Music Show on NOGGIN, but also numerous awards, rave reviews and a following of preschoolers and parents nationwide. Now the band "blasts off" with their first studio album in over six years with Rocketship Run, a collection of 20 new songs that's the highly anticipated follow-up to her best-selling, chart-topping DVD from 2006 We Are...The Laurie Berkner Band.

Featuring new original songs written by Berkner, and her first-ever collaborations with bandmates Susie Lampert and Adam Bernstein. Additionally, fans will be thrilled to finally be able to own the title track, which has already been featured on NOGGIN for a year as well as enjoy a cover of the much-beloved standard "Fly Me to the Moon."

I have two daughters, age 6 and 2. We stumbled upon Laurie's music on Noggin a few years ago, and have been adding her albums to our collection since that time. I can hardly express how this music fills me with joy. I watch my children dancing around the living room to Fast and Slow - they call to me to join them, and then all three of us are spinning around the living room. There is something different about this; we have music by Raffi, Steve and Greg, etc. and at the very best, I can tolerate it. Still, if any music by those other artists pops up on my iPod during my daily commute, I can't get to the controls quickly enough to skip the music. When Laurie comes on, I not only leave it along, but I sing along and usually feel happier by the time the song is over.

For fans of previous Laurie Berkner albums - this continues in the tradition of her previous efforts - inventive lyrics and great, catchy tunes. I would say that the overall production on the album is a notch above previous efforts, and that the songs have a slighly more mature feel without losing Laurie's unique understanding of a child's heart. There are 5 songs that will instantly take their place among your favorite children's tunes: Rocketship Run, Candy Cane Jane, Fast and Slow, Mouse in My Toolbox, and All Around My Room.

There is something very special about an artist who can create and perform music that is technically sophisticated, inventive, occasionally hilarious, and doesn't talk down to kids. A treasure for my whole family, for the preschool children I know and work with, and highly, highly recommended.

Children's music requires the same caliber of intelligent professionalism, originality, and performance standards as does music for adult audiences. The Laurie Berkner Band (consisting of Laurie Berkner in collaboration with Susie Lampert and Adam Bernstein) flawlessly perform and record twenty-four new songs (and in the case of Going on a Hunt in four different musical styles) range from a Brazilian samba to an Irish jig, to a folk song set against a gospel/country background. Lively vocals based on 'kid friendly' melodies (that will also have an immense and immediate appeal to their parents), this masterfully produced and enthusiastically recommended CD album showcases Going on a Hunt-ska (1:11); Mouse in My Toolbox (2:17); Candy Cane Jane (3:07); All Around My Room (1:30); One More Stop on the Train (2:15); Going On a Hunt - blues (1:04); Jump and Fly (2:31); Pigbasket (2:06); Five Day's Old (3:05); Mr. Bassman - and Piano Girl (2:33); Winter Lullaby (2:34); Let's Samba (2:39); Going on a Hunt - conga (1:11); My Blue Sailboat (2:31); Balance Beam (2:04); thunderstorm (2:08); Fast and Slow (2:22); Going on a Hunt - jig (1:10); Farm Song (2:32); Nona (1:29); Walk Along the River (3:16); Going on a Hunt - hand jive (1:43); Fly Me to the Moon (2:44); and the title piece, Rocketship Run (2:24).

To the person who complained about the packaging looking cheap - this was a conscious choice because it is better for the environment than using the "classic" plastic jewel case.

We are BIG Laurie Berkner fans in our house. We have her DVD and all of her CDs to date, so of course we were excited to see this one come out and I got it for my daughter for Christmas. To be honset, I was EXTREMELY dissapointed with this CD. Laurie only writes half of the songs, her bandmates write the others, and it shows. The quality is not as high as her other albums. You can definately hear the difference in the lyrics, flow of the song, and style of music that the songs are written by less experienced musicians. My other problem with this CD is "We're going on a Hunt" is on the CD multiple times. Even my almost 4 year old picked up on it, and she found it just as annoying as I did. "Why is Laurie singing this song again?" she asks when we play the cd. I would not buy this CD unless you are a die hard Laurie fan and *have* to have the entie collection. Stick to her earlier CDs. Either that or dowload the songs you want if they are available individually. This CD will wear on your nerves very quickly.

We love LBB! Rocketship Run was actually the first album we bought, my son loved it so much that we ordered several of her older albums as well. We love all the songs, especially on Rocket Ship run. My son now 5 has every song memorized from all of our LB albums. My husband and I also enjoy singing and listening along as well. We have a few "toddler music" albums of the usual kid's nursery rhymes and while those are nice for your kids, they get really old for mom and dad! But not Laurie, she is very fun and upbeat and the lyrics themselves are sweet, fun, endearing etc...So it makes for fun for the whole family. My 1.5 yr old daughter enjoys it as well. If you like Laurie Berkner you'll definitely like Rocketship Run. If you like this album you might also check out the imagination movers. They are very similar in style and fun for all ages as well and they never get old! :)

Laurie Berkner and her band are one of our toddler's favorite distractions when in the car. Ever since seeing the videos on TV, we knew we needed to keep an eye out for CDs and they have all been well worth every penny and then some. Each disk contains a few songs we already knew and many that came to be new favorites. If you're looking for music that will keep the kids happy without driving you insane, Laurie Berkner Band is the way to go.
