All About Jazz
That “Hell’s Bells” and “The Abingdon Chasp” seemed to fit seamlessly within the overall complexion of the album is simply a testament to the fact that, while every member was a strong musical personality, they were also an ensemble that moved forward with a singular vision. […]
The jazzy and slightly Spanish opening section gives way to a mid-’70s Zappa-like section. (Think Ruth Underwood.) Then Holdsworth starts ripping away. […]

From the get-go, this collection of ten tracks stands as a maelstrom of chops, arranging skills and inspired ensemble playing. Easily the dynamics between drums, keys and fretless bass provide a high profile, capable structure for Holdsworth’s top-flight soloing ability. […]
