Glass Floor is the first full-length album by the indie pop group Maritime. It was the follow-up to the Adios EP, which contained five tracks. The songs on this album range from acoustic ballads ("Lights") to fast acoustic driven songs ("James") as well as heartfelt love songs ("I'm Not Afraid") and fast, poppy tunes ("Adios") which was on the Adios EP.

Brian Howe, of Pitchfork panned the album, saying it was "nothing to write home about, and didn't hold out any hope for great things to come either." However, Howe was more positive about the band's later album, We, the Vehicles.[1]
