The Penguin Guide to Jazz[2]

The AllMusic review by Paula Edelstein awarded the album 4 stars, stating, "This is the WSQ's sixth recording for the Justin Time label and exceeds the listening possibilities and interpretations of their Takin' It to the Next Level CD because of their extensive range of approaches, new sonorities, hi-tech themes, and the overdubbing experimentation.".[1] The Penguin Guide to Jazz stated that this and Requiem for Julius were "perhaps the most accessible recordings by the group".
