All Music Guide - Jim Newsom
A reunion of four of Pentangle's original members only John Renbourn is missing, Open the Door is a resounding artistic success. Impeccable jazz-inflected musicianship and folkie vocal harmonies combine to produce one of the best outings released under the Pentangle name in their multi-decade career.

This is gorgeous stuff.
