Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
AllMusic 2/5 stars[2]

Allmusic gave the album two stars, noting, "The madly in love combination of Paul Bley and Annette Peacock, toting all kinds of unstable synthesizer equipment around Europe, and backed by the madcap Han Bennink on drums, adds up to the stuff of musical legend. Sadly enough, this is one of the better musical documents from these encounters".[2]
