AllMusic Review by

Charnett Moffett is a virtuosic bassist with very impressive chops but this Blue Note release is largely a waste. The dense electronic ensembles never seem to develop beyond the melody statements and the sidemen (most of them being Moffett's siblings) fail to display any originality. Since Charnett wrote all six of the compositions and produced the date himself, the blame for the disappointing fluff rests with the leader.
