Reception

Allmusic awards the album with 4.5 stars and the review by Thom Jurek states: "The pairing of Keith and Julie Tippett on a recording always causes anticipation; the duo's potential for provocative surprise is seemingly endless. But even so, nothing could have prepared listeners for Couple in Spirit. Far from the hallmarks of jazz or the harsher extremes of free improvisation, CIS is in a sense an eight-part suite that begins with intention, moves through incantation and journey, and finally returns as transformation."
