Source Rating
AllMusic 4/5 stars[1]

Music critic Robert Taylor of AllMusic praised the album, writing that Reed "never sounds mechanical. Rather, Reed creates memorable melodies with shifting percussive patterns that give the selections an organized, but relaxed feel... Required listening for guitarists of any style, or fans of beautiful acoustic."[1]
