Allmusic.com gave Nick Mason’s Fictitious Sports a 3 star review:

Columbia, apparently attempting to cash in on Pink Floyd’s explosion in popularity, released this album in 1981 under Nick Mason’s name when in reality he’s simply the drummer in this incarnation of Carla Bley’s ensemble; Ms. Bley composed all the music and lyrics for this project. It’s possibly her most overtly pop-oriented album, with all eight songs featuring vocals by Soft Machine alumnus Robert Wyatt. The music, by Bley’s standards, is fairly pedestrian if occasionally catchy, though the lyrics are often wryly amusing. So we have songs about failed car motors and a skeptic’s encounter with a flying saucer, and one dedicated to unappreciative audiences titled “Boo to You Too.” …For Pink Floyd completists, this album might provide a glimpse into an alternate universe of which they were otherwise unaware, but fans of Bley’s earlier masterpieces like Escalator Over the Hill are likely to emerge somewhat disappointed.
