The AllMusic review by Thom Jurek states "Ultimately, Llyria may be slightly more organic and emotional than previous Ronin discs, but it's very much of a piece with Bärtsch's overall musical vision, and longtime listeners will enjoy it as much as new ones".[2] The Guardian's John Fordham noted "It's minimalism, but Bärtsch has always stretched the method beyond the minutiae of rhythmic and motivic changes to a more robust approach, informed by funk and soul".[3]
