Reception[edit]

The Panorama review by Harald Christian Langaas (15.2.2001, © Panorama Media) awarded the album four stars, stating:

... The lyrics of Grace is from the old English poet, John Donne, and it is truly beautiful and wise words for thought, which certainly deserves to be brought to light. Still, I might mention the embossed instrumental improvisation parties as the most successful. This is where the band's best qualities come into their own...[1]

The Amazon.com readers riview awarded the album 4½ stars.[3]
