Source Rating[1] 3.5/5 stars
Metal Hammer Germany[3] 5/7
Sonic Seducer[2] (very favourable)

The album received positive reviews from the critics. The complex sound, a flawless production and the vocal abilities of singer Sabine Edelsbacher have been noted by both and the German Sonic Seducer magazine.[1][2] The latter also mentioned a few hints at power metal in the album and considered the overall material an aspirant for Symphonic metal song classics. The German edition of Metal Hammer praised the orchestral arrangements by Arne "Lanvall" Stockhammer and the overall musical mix of classic elements and metal.[3]

Solitaire did not enter the Austrian charts but peaked at position 95 in Germany.[4]
