Allmusic 4/5 stars [1]

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Thom Owen wrote the album "Flatt & Scruggs and Watson play with a startling fluidity — these instrumentals are so rich and skillful that vocals would have been superfluous. For lovers of instrumental bluegrass, this album is a must-hear."[1]
