Berliner Abendblatt, 2003:
Die Kompositionen von Laurie Randolph sind ebenso filigran und virtuos wie fantasievoll und unterhaltsam. Es handelt sich dabei um atmosphärische Landschaftsbetrachtungen und Innenansichten voller Licht und Poesie…

Flöte Aktuell, 1.2008 , Karin Meesmann :
Über das Arrangement hinaus ist Laurie Randolph eine phantasiereiche, lyrisch ausdrucksvolle Komponistin. Ihr “Dragon” für Flöte und Gitarre ist von höher affektiver Dichte und lässt märchenhaft assoziieren. Bildet hier eine türkische Melodie den Ausgangspunkt, so ist in dem Gitarrensolo “Palmyra” der Daburka Trommelrhythmus so formbildend, wie packend.
