    An album that gives lie to the phrase "they don't make 'em like that anymore."

    Into the Waves is an invitation to float. The mature lyrics and vocal performances in conjunction with the flow of disco-like melodies makes you feel like you're walking the fine line between fantasy and reality. It's a lovely indulgence.

    Knapp's sweet voice is closer to Olivia Newton-John than [Stevie] Nicks, but nevertheless tracks like "Glasses High" and "The Right Place: have abundant charm, some superb, glowing arrangements. [Apr 2012, p.81]

    Into the Waves is stylized, but its presentation still manages to suit its content.
  5. Mar 27, 2012
    Quietly and slowly satisfying rather than a knock-out blow, Into the Waves is nevertheless a world away from the kind of self-centred and hollow record it could have been.

    A fine album which might be too much of a period piece to truly be the 'sound of 2012' or somesuch, but has a greater chance of making Sophia Knapp into a minor unit-shifter than Lights or Cliffie Swan ever did.
