AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Anastasio does cut loose on the live tracks (there's a real Santana "Soul Sacrifice" feel to "The 5th Round"), and lets the world know he's got the chops to lead this band, but the real worth of the material is in how these cats play as a band. Even on rudimentary jams, such as "Burlap Sack & Pumps," the drummers keep the thing churning and turning with complementary contrapuntal breakbeats! There are some killer improv moments in the studio as "Olivia"'s two main sections melt together and become a smoldering jam. It begins with the Afro-funk horns and Anastasio's noisy riff playing call and response with one another.
