Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic site awarded the album 4 stars stating "The title of this album is misleading in that it may suggest to the casual viewer a retrospective. It is anything but. Lateef is referring here to the complete in the sense that it contains the completeness of his musical vision at a given time... an album that is as fine as any of his Prestige or Impulse! recordings".[2]
