Allmusic.com gave Stillness a 4 star review:

Stillness is a concept album — the title tune opens and closes it in moody stillness — and a transition piece all at once, for Sergio Mendes seemed to be searching for a viable way out of the Brasil ’66 formula. Indeed, “Righteous Life,” using a different L.A. rhythm section, is really a folk-rock record, a good one, and a far cry from the bossa-propelled ’60s. … Overlooked in its day, Stillness is the great sleeper album of Sergio Mendes’ first A&M period.
