    The most exciting thing about Comfort is the sense that this is an artist who has only scratched the surface of her talent.

    Cole's beats may differ but she speaks the same language of shadows and longing. [Sep 2013, p.100]

    House music’s fire will never go out. And this pack of rhythmic aces can only help fan its hypnotic flames.

    For a debut album that finds her moving away from her comfort zone as much as revelling in it, Maya Jane Coles has delivered something very fine indeed.

    It's a real album in a singles-driven genre, and a record certainly worth slowing down and savoring.

    Comfort won't be for everyone, but it's hard to argue that the risks Coles has taken don't pay off. If nothing else, it's certainly fascinating to watch her expand her aesthetic beyond the dancefloor.

    Coles has a way of making her tracks sound massive and intimate at the same time, using reverb in a way that evokes both the expanse of an arena and the introspection of a bedroom.... Comfort has enough of these moments to remind us of her casual brilliance, but not enough to make it the complete knockout it could be.

    Quite a bit bluer and calmer, where her previous music featured the four-on-the-floor pep of traditional house, this album falls closer to witch house and the rainy gloom associated with trip-hop.
