Subject to Change is an album by Henry Threadgill released on the About Time label in 1985. The album features six of Threadgill's compositions performed by Threadgill with Ray Anderson, Rasul Siddik, Fred Hopkins, Diedre Murray, Pheeroan akLaff and John Betsch with Amina Claudine Myers contributing vocals to one track.[2]

The Allmusic review by Brian Olewnick states, "Subject to Change continued to display the leader's extraordinary compositional gifts in a series of pieces ranging from the episodic to the melancholy to the purely grooving... meaty, imaginative, solidly and even inspiringly played, and rich in evocations of past musics while looking straight into the future".[3]
