Allmusic.com gave Voyage of the Acolyte a 4 star review:
The essence of progressive music is characterized perfectly on Voyage of the Acolyte, Steve Hackett’s first solo album. The former Genesis guitarist uses his instrumental mastery to conjure up musical images of sorcerers, magic, and old English castles with the primary use of keyboards and electric guitar. Phil Collins on drums and vibraphone and Mike Rutherford on bass and fuzz 12-string contribute their talents to the churning synthesizers that accompany each passage. The basic instrumental elements of progressive rock are heard loud and clear throughout the album, including Mellotron, harmonium, flute, and bells, and none with a minor role to play. …A true progressive masterpiece, Voyage of the Acolyte is an album firmly stationed in the upper echelon of prog rock.
