"Cara's new record is great, real, and heartfelt - as she is. No fluff or extra notes - just the good stuff!" – Buddy Miller – producer, guitarist (Emmylou Harris)

"Yes, Calgary’s Luft is a Wailin’ Jennys founder but so much more too. Think Julie Miller meets Gillian Welch on a lot of this, with an occasional bit of Linda Thompson tossed in. This could be very big in Canadian roots circles." – John P. McLaughlin – The Vancouver Province

"This is her time, this is her year and THIS is the album! Ladies and Gentlemen, make room in your music world for Cara Luft. Songwriting as good as any I heard in all of 2006, begins my 2007... and just when you think you've got her style and passion nailed down she busts out in a completely different direction. As I said, make room for Cara Luft...before she kicks your door down!" – Terry David Mulligan, Mulligan Stew – ckua

“Unlike so many singer-songwriters, Luft’s music has an urgency that can’t be denied… as good as anything I’ve heard for a long time.”
– Americana UK

"The Light Fantastic is a little bit country, a whole lot of folk and a surprising dollop of rock from an artist who’s quickly climbing the ranks to become one of the stars of the Canadian roots scene. If you thought it was a drag when Luft left the Jennys, check out The Light Fantastic and see what she’s been doing since. You won’t be disappointed." —John Threlfall, Monday Magazine
