"A relaxed, slightly reserved Taylor emerges here, full of flame but more than ever investigating a kind of majesty, grandeur, lyricism, and elegance." -- John Corbett, Downbeat
"...fascinating, exciting, and beautiful.... The five brief concluding pieces are simply marvelous — concise studies that gleam like rubies, concentrated nuggets of power and delicacy that no one but Taylor could ever create.... Highly recommended." -- Brian Olewnick, All Music Guide (4 stars)
