Allmusic called it "a mad mélange of modern classical music, doom-laden metal, power chord-driven rock, and freely improvised jazz."All About Jazz reviewer Mark Corroto noted "The exchanges are crisp and the musicianship (no surprise here) is top rate. The band displays a gentle beauty in the excess that is this music."Consequence of Sound stated "No matter how far Zorn experiments out into the ether, he always keeps grounded in the same place. And that place is always breathtaking, full of weird wonderment, amazing power and lithe musicianship."
