    Ed Harcourt takes her from dancefloor wannabe to sincere songstress, & whilst there are some very likable tracks here, overall there just feels a lack of focus on the album. It's all exceptionally well produced and Sophie has such a beautiful voice.

    Sophie se mostrou uma artista atemporal com este disco, incrível!
    Achei a mudança da dance music para o estilo chill out mais calmo muito bom, um CD muito bonito para a carreira dela.

    Ótimo album, trouxe uma Sophie diferente de tudo que já tinhamos ouvido dela, canções lindas e uma classe incomparável, algo pouco visto na música pop atualmente.... Lindo!!!!

    What a spectacular, sensual, mature and all-sufficient work of Art! The whole album is like a kaleidoscope of stories - each is different but all are connected to each other at the same time by this nostalgic retro spirit.

She told in some interview that this record is the most personal for her, and I must admit that I was hoping to hear an album like "Wanderlust" from Sophie for a long time. It describes her as an exceptional, interesting and talented person. For me "Wanderlust" is like a breath of fresh air among many other latest releases. Expand

    Everytime I listen to "Wanderlust", I used to remember of a ballad. Sophie has a beautiful voice in all songs, with a highlight on the song "Young Blood". Also, I can see a mature woman that have so many stories to tell us... Even with a heart broken and with a fall in love.

    Amazing and graceful. ♥

    A brand new proposal, some songs are so classy and other are so strong. Definitely this is the best album of this song writer. Sophie show us how versatile and artistic can be.

    Ultimately, Wanderlust is a beautiful thing to behold: a collection of quirky, lovingly crafted songs brought to life by an artist who sounds like she has found herself.

    Wanderlust is at its best when it's slightly dexterous (as on the girl group homage "Runaway Daydreamer") and it can get bogged down in pretension (as on the ceaseless pomp of "Love Is a Camera"), but it's always exquisitely sculpted and better for its attention to detail.

    Wanderlust sees the singer execute an elegant slide into a more stately kind of pop. [Feb 2014, p.88]
