Allmusic.com gave Fish Out of Water a 4 1/2 star review:

Yes-like in every possible aspect, Chris Squire’s Fish out of Water is an album that’s typical of his band’s progressive formula: softened keyboard extensions à la Patrick Moraz, steady yet atmospheric percussion work from Bill Bruford, and a smattering of flute and saxophone that accompanies a small orchestra, which includes effective horn and harp work.
