The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars, stating, "At 21, Murray already had remarkable technique and these explorations with bassist Fred Hopkins and drummer Phillip Wilson are quite adventurous... None of the compositions themselves are that memorable and some listeners may find Murray's screams and screeches (which he would modify a bit in later years) to be a bit too emotional, but this was a strong first effort."[1]
