"Cooking through contradiction, the New York Art Quartet cut some of the most powerful music in the free jazz underground." - Clifford Allen, All About Jazz
"The rep of this LP as a touchstone in any respectable library of free jazz remains ironclad. Now, as at the time of its pressing, the music looks beyond such celebratory canonization and stands on its own terms." - Derek Taylor, Bagatellen
