AllMusic Review by

Billy Mahonie's smooth, midnight instrumentals feature bright, wandering guitar lines, rising bass layers, trumpet, and full, gritty rhythm guitar. The Billy Mahonie mood progresses from simple, accessible ditties into King Crimson-like hard prog and back on this album. The trumpet on two of the tracks comes from Ian Watson, who also helped write the pieces.
