AMG Review (2 1/2 !):
This controversial but memorable recording is mostly a duet between Miles Davis and the many overdubbed instruments of producer Marcus Miller (although violinist Michel Urbaniak, percussionist Paulinho da Costa and keyboardist George Duke are among the other musicians making brief apperaances). Certainly the results are not all that spontaneous but Davis is in top form and some of the selections (most notably the title cut) are quite memorable. — Scott Yanow

What more can I say. Miles has once again outdone himself. I just bought this cd and can't seem to stop playing the damn thing. Miles to me is the consumate artist and this collaboration with Mr Miller is nothing short of brilliant. To be honest I have become as big Marcus Miller fan as I am a Miles Davis fan. Marcus brings to this piece just that right texture of funk and soul in a fusion that will make this work a memorable one. Miles' trumpet renditions exonerates the wizardy and majestry that is Miles. George Duke's contribution must not be denied especially on Backyard Ritual. As an up and coming jazz enthusiast i believe this to be one to add to the young jazz listeners collection.
