Kerrang! 3/5 stars[2]

"Twenty years in the business is a long time for any band, especially for the one that awkwardly straddles two genres. Axxis play soft focus power metal that edges on the progressive rock, the massive use of keyboards and Bernhardt Weiss' clean, high-pitched tones being particularly redolent of the latter," writes Kerrang!. "Utopia may well be the clearest and most accessible distillation of what Axxis do," opines reviewer Steve Beebee, giving the album 3 out of 5Ks rating.[2]
