Looking Into You: A Tribute to Jackson Browne received mostly positive reviews from music critics upon its release. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has received an average score of 68, based on 10 reviews, indicating "generally favorable" feedback.[2] Rolling Stone's Will Hermes gave the album three out of five stars, stating: "Not every performance is memorable, and the absence of younger fans is a missed opportunity – where's Conor Oberst? But the way that Browne's songs braid verbose emotions with melody remains magical."[3] Allmusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the album a positive review, stating that "on a track-by-track basis this collection is very good" and "if there are no knockouts here, the sly, subtle approach also emphasizes the fine craft of Browne, which is a nice thing to say about a tribute album."[4]
