CRITIC REVIEWS

The Guardian

As a contemporary jazz set, Far from Over has just about everything.

90
AllMusic

What's particularly engaging about Far from Over is Iyer and his band's sense of danger and risk-taking. Ultimately, it's that balance of harmonically adventurous exploration and no-holds-barred blowing that make Far from Over nothing short of thrilling.

80
PopMatters

Far From Over is ambitious, varied, and thrilling.

80
Rolling Stone

Far From Over might lack an obvious mainstream hook, but the sturdiness of its design and the passion of its execution make it 2017's jazz album to beat.

77
Pitchfork
The 10-track, nearly hour-long album offers one of the bandleader’s strongest and most varied programs—one in which feverish ensemble writing hangs together with groove-oriented tracks and sparer experimental textures.
