Rolling Stone
The cut is Miles’s tribute to another one of his soul inspirations and is a gas. As he has always done, this artist keeps plunging ahead, sure of where he’s going and not bothering to look over his shoulder to see who’s inevitably going to follow. […]

Stylus
And that’s what Miles did soon after the release of this record and a few Japan-only live documents: he put down his horn for the rest of the decade, letting cobwebs envelop his house. I will not guess at his reasons for doing so; I’m sure he had his own. And like his smoky, brooding cover photograph on this album, all hexagonal glasses and pursed lips, to say nothing of the music within, it’s a mystery. I would expect nothing else. […]

This may be the most “commercial” sounding of all of Miles’ electric records from the ’70s, but it still sounds out there, alienand futuristic in all the best waysand Get Up with It is perhaps just coming into its own here in the 21st century. […]
