Reception[edit]

Allmusic awarded the album 4 stars and reviewer Thom Jurek states "Revealing is more than just fascinating listening to hear the development in Blood Ulmer's playing and compositional ideas, it's a solid jazz date with visionary players taking a new turn with the music and seeing how fast they can drive it down the road. While it does not contain the sheer drama of Tales of Captain Black or Are You Glad to Be in America? because it's a fairly laid-back date, it does contain all of their musical qualities".[2]
