I'd Like to See You Again received a mixed-to-favourable response from critics. Trouser Press wrote that the album "suffers from [singer Martha] Tilson's absence, and stumbles about, evincing self-consciousness and conservatism in place of the previously aggressive experimental attitude."[5] Record Collector called it "one of their finest albums [...] I'd Like to See You Again is timeless, and ready for a first date with a new generation."[4]
