AllMusic Review by

Ghetto Love Sugar's Uncertainty Principle is a spacy, dreamy collection of fusion and free jazz that explores repetitive rhythm tracks and experimental sound textures. The psychedelic tapestry woven by the musicians here is quite bizarre and hard to really penetrate, but in the right situation this can be incredible to wrap your mind around and really explore. Nothing resembles typical songwriting here; this is an album that demands an hour of your time and resists any separation of the tracks. With that being said, the sheer complexity of the album makes it very hard to recommend to anyone not willing to invest the mental time into listening to the album. Although it flows from the aggressive kaleidoscope of "Godzilla Soup" to the summer friendly groove of "Cracker Etiquette" to the atmospheric funk of "Gidget y el Diablo" with a natural ease, the album is still virtually impossible to take in a social situation. But in an empty room with a few blankets and an hour to kill, Uncertainty Principle is a worthwhile investment that creates a pleasant sonic bubble that doesn't pop easily.
