    Easily his best work since Babylon's ubiquity. [Aug 2014, p.106]

    He still flashes his intellect--two songs are inspired by poets--but most of the album reveals a romantic and spiritual bliss that feels just as good as it sounds.

    Grey remains a subtle songwriter, but these songs are direct and often slyly hooky, which means Mutineers makes a striking initial impact then seeps in deeply.

    The high bar he has set with a tremendous back catalog makes us yearn for just a bit more out of Mutineers.

    The title track is a thunderous grower with a tribal, kick-ass epiphany. And then...it's one mediocre ballad after another. [Jul 2014, p.91]

    While Mutineers doesn't totally shatter preconceptions, there's a rare comfort in hearing an artist in pursuit of joy; and unlike the throng of relatively inoffensive twentysomething singer-songwriters littering the charts, Gray's songs have a timeworn quality that's far more charismatic.

    This is a worthwhile purchase for any David Gray fans, but for everyone else the world just keeps on turning.
