Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Dean McFarlane awarded the album 4 stars stating "what a pity this monstrous work was not made more widely available, as it contains some of the more ferocious performances of free improvisation that the members of this trio have put to record throughout their disparate and eclectic careers".[2]
