New Music Review: Low-The Invisible Way

Low-The Invisible Way
Average Score: 74
 [Sub Pop]
Available At: emusic, Amazon MP3 & CD
 ______________________________________________________________________
91 The A.V. Club
It’s as if Low has taken its tried-and-true songwriting formula--a slow buildup into a smoldering climax--and stretched it to the length of an entire album. And an entirely superb one.

80 AllMusic
Low give us a definitive chapter for where they are presently, and present it with more clarity and joy than we've heard from them in some time.

80 Pop Matters
The Invisible Way is very good--and not just “good for a band that’s 20 years old.”

73 Pitchfork
Nothing on these songs sounds the least bit rote or comfortable, and that’s remarkable for a band so far into an unlikely career.

70 Consequence Of Sound
While the connective tissue between the record’s highlights simmers at the same temperature as much of Low’s back catalog, The Invisible Way flows as a satisfying whole.
________________________________________________________________________
70 No Ripcord
They make enough changes while doing what they do best to avoid getting pigeonholed, which is more than we can ask for from a band that’s about to start a third milestone.

65 Under The Radar
Overall, this is a fine record that continues the Low legacy.

65 Paste
It’s a disappointment to hear the band retreat into their old shell on their latest, The Invisible Way.
