Into White is an album by the American singer-songwriter Carly Simon. It is her 23rd studio album (30th overall), and her fifth album of pop standards.[1]

Released on January 2, 2007 by Columbia Records, Into White was produced by the Martha's Vineyard producer Jimmy Parr, with whom Simon has worked extensively as his studio is close to her Tisbury farm. Simon's children, Sally Taylor and Ben Taylor, appear on this album. After the success of Reflections and Moonlight Serenade, Into White continued Simon's recently rejuvenated high chart profile and became Billboard′s Hot Shot Debut, entering the chart at No. 15 and peaking at No. 13 in its second week, and staying on the charts for 10 weeks.[2]

Reception

The album received a very warm and positive reception from critics. PopMatters rated 8 out of 10, and called the album "the first musical gift to grace 2007", and prased the track "You Can Close Your Eyes" saying "There’s a shimmering beauty that’s particular to how familial voices intertwine and the union of these three voices is singularly beautiful", and concluded "Ultimately, Into White serves the legacy of Carly Simon very well". People Magazine awarded the album 3 out of 4 stars, calling it "a tranquil collection of covers that play like lullabies for grown-ups" and also prased the track "You Can Close Your Eyes" saying it is "The best moment on the album".[3] Entertainment Weekly rated the album B, and called it a "richly personal disc". Allmusic rated the album 3 out of 5 stars, and concluded the review with "In sum, Into White may be the best record Simon's made since The Bedroom Tapes. The New York Times stated "Entering the world of Carly Simon’s new album is like tiptoeing into an enchanted garden. The fanciful Cat Stevens song that opens the record establishes a mood of deep, dreamy calm that is sustained over 14 songs".[4] Amazon.com stated "Simon, vocally sure-footed as ever, wicks the warmth out of every last track and directs it with pinpoint precision to her listeners--nobody does music as comfort food better".[5]
