Allmusic.com gave I Advance Masked a 4 1/2 star review:
Many a guitar fan would have predicted that a summit between legendary guitarists Andy Summers (the Police) and Robert Fripp (King Crimson) would result in a guitar solofest. But the music on their first collaboration together, I Advance Masked, stresses guitar textures and moods over indulgent soloing. Although the recording sessions weren’t entirely enjoyable for Summers (who was experiencing marital problems at the time), some very beautiful music can be found on the resulting album…. It’s highly recommended to fans of these two great and original guitarists.
