ReceptionEdit

Allmusic awarded the album with 4 stars and its review by Richard S. Ginell states: "..a brighter, more outgoing record than its predecessor Vision, veering between Western acoustic and electric grooves and the complex beats churned out by the tabla. Jan Garbarek again shines beams of light on soprano and tenor, engaging Shankar's ten-string double-necked electric violin in some complex interplay on the title track".[1]
