  • Summary: The New York-based experimental jazz trio expands its sound on this album by adding turntablists DJ P Love and DJ Olive and a five-piece horn section.

  1. MMW charge brazenly past cries of Jimmy Smith worship into territory rarely covered by artists either acoustic or electric. [Jun 2002, p.80]
  2. While some of the complexities of their precursors have been beveled off by MM&W, dancefloor maniacs and couch boppers alike will find something to admire in rhythmically compulsive entries like the title track.
  3. A weird ride, but a good one.
  4. Picking up where their 2000 release The Dropper left off and echoing the freeform explorations of their defining 1996 effort Shack Man, Uninvisible falls right in step with these two then takes off running.
  5. Their most enjoyable collection yet.
  6. Many tracks come off as retreads or ideas freeze-dried for consumption at the trio's famous exhaustingly intense live shows.
  7. 60
    MMW start with some dirty grooves, then add DJs, horn sections and singers for dissonance and disruptions. [Apr/May 2002, p.115]

    Grooves and awesome jammage to the max. Just like all of their albums except Farmers Reserve, it gets a 10
