Allmusic     [2]

The Allmusic review by Jim Smith awarded the album 4 stars stating "From its first manic blast, it's clear that Masada, Vol. 10: Yod is going to be one of John Zorn and company's wildest, most confident works... What continues to impress in this, their tenth release, is the group's relentless energy and the sheer brilliance of their interplay".[2]
