Time Out New York calls Chen "a superb pianist and a brilliant advocate for the instrument's downscaled toy sibling." The recording was also reviewed in New Music Box:
"The disc’s seven compositions—some concentrating on the instrument alone, others incorporating electronics, recorded vocals, and/or additional percussive sounds—span a compelling range of sonic worlds that dazzle with their creative use of the toy piano’s unique timbre, the distinctly audible key strokes, and variously employed extended techniques.
