Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars stating "Brahem has given listeners another of his wondrous offerings, full of deceptively simple compositions that open into a secret world, one where beauty is so present that it is nearly unapproachable, and it is up to the listener to fill in the spaces offered them by this remarkable trio".[2]
