|The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings|
The AllMusic review by Heather Phares called it an "impressive first album" stating "Jazz pianist/composer Jason Moran's debut, Soundtrack to Human Motion, approaches his music with an abstract, impressionistic outlook".
All About Jazz reviewer David Adler said, "Can we all just agree that this is the debut of the year, if not the record of the year? Jazz has seen its share of excellent young players, but 24-year-old pianist Jason Moran really raises the bar with his superb Soundtrack to Human Motion ... Watch this man closely and see what develops".
In JazzTimes, Duck Baker wrote "Moran has plenty of pianistic ideas, and repeated listens reveal how he is moving into his own way of dealing. ... This is good music that can only get better if Moran stays his course".
