AllMusic 4/5 stars[3]

Robert Taylor at AllMusic gave Evolution four stars out of five, calling it a "predominately shred-oriented session" and "one of Macalpine's more complete releases", while remarking that it provides a "promising glimpse into his more fusion-oriented endeavors he would explore with Planet X and CAB." He also noted "Time Table" and "Futurism" as highlights.[3]
