AllMusic 3/5 stars (No review)[1]

John W. Patterson at All About Jazz gave Jennifer Batten's Tribal Rage: Momentum a glowing review, saying "I've never heard anyone do anything quite like Batten's continuous stream of note-bending, tapping, swells, controlled feedback, harmonics, and lightning-fast riffs." He likened the album to Batten's popular guitarist peers, but also that "She goes beyond [Steve] Vai's insane excursions and tops it off by tipping her hat and then running past [Joe] Satriani's finer weirdness." Praise was also given to her supporting musicians: "There is some seriously cool bass work and severely challenging percussion happening here as well."[2]
