Just another excuse to trance dance, perhaps,

Mmm. Already I like this better than Uninvisible. I don't like to use the expression "break new ground" with MMW as I think their retro-future-funk sound is too grounded in a well-oiled groove to be considered on the fringes of truly progressive music. But tracks like Anonymous Skulls, Bloody Oil, and New Planet definitely display the expansion of pallette that is to be hoped for with these insane musical communicators. And then there are other tracks like Shine It which bear an almost too-close resemblance to previous outings (in this case Note Bleu, which it could easily be without the extra transitional bars thrown in). But that is me speaking as someone who has listened to far too much MMW. The sexy details that punctuated Uninvisible but were let down by flat tracks that refused to grow are amplified here by well-rounded nuggets of groove that, even if sometimes derivative of the past, never sound stale. All in all a solid outing, thank you boys, and kudos to John King - you really know how to make the stars shine.
