    The threesome's Orcadian tribute is a remarkable modern-yet-ancient mini-musical. [Jul 2012, p.105]

    Magnetic North seem to take you to another place entirely with what seems like very simple ingredients--subtle, dare-I-say tasteful instrumentation, and languid, slowly infectious melodies.

    This record is both symphony for sufferers of that condition and a treasure map to the Orkney Islands, whether walking their beaches, or stopped in a traffic jam on the M25.

    This isn't an album of standout moments though per se; rather it's a record to be enjoyed as a whole. The true worth of each track is found in listening to them in order start to finish.
