Allmusic.com gave Crash Landing a 2 1/2 star review:
In the ’70s, there was no shortage of posthumous Jimi Hendrix releases. Reprise and other labels knew that Hendrix’s fans were an incredibly loyal and devoted bunch, and they knew that serious collectors would snag any Hendrix LP they could get their hands on. One of those posthumous releases was Crash Landing, which Reprise assembled in 1975. The LP’s best-known tracks include “Message to Love” and “With the Power,” both of which find Hendrix leading his Band of Gypsies power trio. Also enjoyable is a remake of the famous “Stone Free.”
