«Die Einspielung von „Tread on the Trail“, das von den Musikern des ARTE Quartetts in einer eigenen Fassung bearbeitet wurde, ist eine Meisterleistung des Quartetts, dem es gelungen ist, eine völlig neue und eigenständige Version zu geben, die den Akzent von der rhythmischen zirkularen Komposition verschiebt und auf ein packendes Finale hin ausrichtet.»
Ruedi Ankli, Basellandschaftliche Zeitung, 14.02.2006

«t’s no surprise, then, to see him working with the ARTE-Quartett, who have in recent years become a first-call new music saxophone quartet. When he leaves the saxophonists to do their thing – as on the title track or the 1965 piece “Tread on the Trail” (with its 12 overdubbed saxophones) – the music is really excellent, shimmering with life and brimming with detail.»
Jason Bivins, Dusted, 12.02.2006

«Assassin Reverie is the most challenging and rewarding Riley album that had appeared in some time.»
Dave Lewis, AllMusic.com, 02.2006
