"The second album from Mujician was recorded live earlier this year. In the interim, free jazz has developed a tradition and language which Poem About The Hero unashamedly refers to. It may not be that radical anymore, but Tippett's ensemble can still surprise you with the ease with which it can slip in and out of different formal confines - from the rich and balladic, through the microtonal and muscular. "
- The Wire

"Despite the intense free-jazz dialogue and improv, there are several instances of lush melodic content along with moments of quiet solitude. Mujician isn't about an eccentric bunch of free jazzers competing against one another, but a tight cohesive unit with a stake planted firmly in the ground. Highly recommended."
- All About Jazz
