    The album bears all the hallmarks of relaxed, unfettered exploration; it's a bold, assured effort that finds Maritime definitively stepping out from the shadows of the past and into a new light.
  2. Human Hearts, their new fourth album and first release in almost four years, is no exception, and in fact may be their best work to date.

    Human Hearts is the kind of end-to-end solid album that most bands strive for, rarely attain, and usually only achieve once in their career, with track after track of immediately addictive, sparklingly produced, and emotionally heartfelt pop.

    Maritime's musical development has become a compelling narrative of its own, each subsequent record in many ways both improving upon and elucidating the last.

    They work best when under the restraints of a three-minute pop song, resolute to achieving guitar resonance in a compact framework.

    Too much of Human Hearts feels like a retread of what they've already done on previous LPs. [Apr 2011, p.115]

    It is admirable to maintain the same bright-eyed outlook and sound as you did in college. That's what Maritime's Human Hearts imparts. [May 2011, p.88]
