AllMusic2.5/5 stars[4]

AllMusic reviewer Bruce Eder stated "Wolf adamantly refuses to back down from his rivals, resulting in a flood of contentious studio banter that turns out to be more entertaining than the otherwise unmemorable music from this stylistic train wreck. Although Wolf and Waters duke it out in earnest on the blues standards, the presence of Diddley (and his rave-up repertoire) makes the prospect of an ensemble impossible; in the end, there are just too many clashing ingredients to make the mix digestible. ... At least it sounds like they had fun doing it".[4]
