    The whole sternly focused thing is laced with enough emphasis on sound design to function as an immersive headphone listen, while at least two-thirds of it can drain one's energy on a dancefloor.

    From his eulogy of Detroit strings and deep beats, to London's ambiguous constant reinvention of bass culture, these are tracks that will hold their own in any city with DJs operating at the forefront of the shifting beat.

    It demonstrates his considerable talent as a producer, for he has crafted a cutting edge album that is extremely engaging and enjoyable.

    Ghost People is the sound of Martyn cozying up to house music and mastering it, as close to focused and standing still as a restless artist like him could ever get.

    While it often lacks the moodier, polyrhythmic highs of Great Lengths and the character that came with it, Martyn's efforts to make it back through no-nonsense propulsion nearly make up for it.

    Dance album of this level of consistent quality are rare. Yet ultimately, no groove in this album particularly reach out and little new, different or memorable is offered for the imagination. [Oct 2011, p.65]

    Great album. It doesn't hit you with anything at the beginning but slowly wins you over. There is never any 'wow' moment but the sounds very original.
