  1. Maritime might be a light, almost frothy album, but that's exactly where its power lies.
  2. An assortment of evocative instrumental journeys that warm the cockles.
  3. Think Giorgio Moroder, The Art of Noise and Michael Nyman with - if you like your reference points with less padded shoulders - a touch of New Order and Boards of Canada.

    Somewhere between Matmos and Ariel Pink, this is wickedly out there. [Sep 2005, p.110]
  5. 70
    This is chic pop electronica. [Aug 2005, p.101]
  6. 70
    Demonstrates... pastoral grace, sweetness and warmth. [Aug 2005, p.106]
  7. Starting at the midpoint, "Twosley," Maritime starts to drag.
