Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores

Allmusic 2.5/5 stars[2]

David Dupont of Allmusic stated "This is a stark, moody set, not the place to begin to explore Hill's prickly work with its angular, elusive melodies. His solo presentation is stark and ruminative. For those already engaged with his work, this offers a glimpse of the skeletal foundations of compositions".[2]
