Scott Yanow, writing for Allmusic, notes that "Tyner creates some very powerful and highly original solos, really tearing into some of the more extended pieces... Essential music that still sounds fresh and adventurous". Richard Cook and Brian Morton, authors of The Penguin Guide to Jazz, opine that the both Enlightenment and Atlantis are "two huge, sprawling concert recordings which will drain most listeners: Tyner's piano outpourings seem unstoppable, and Lawrence comes on as an even fierier spirit than Fortune, even if both are in thrall to Coltrane."
All music composed by McCoy Tyner, except where noted.
