Professional ratings
Review scores
Allmusic3.5/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 3½ stars and stated "Hill is still every bit the creative and technically gifted musician he was back in the day; perhaps more so... Hill's gift lies in his ability to employ the tradition exactly as he means to, yet he also seems to look for the mystery inherent in the improvisation and the dialogue of musicians with one another... Time Lines is yet another landmark in one of the most astonishing careers in the history of jazz".[2]
