Songs for the Late Night Drive Home received generally positive reviews from music critics. Craig Ismaili, allocating the album an 8.0 review at AbsolutePunk, says, "it's one of the many things that keeps me coming back to the record again and again."[1] Awarding the album four stars from Jesus Freak Hideout, Roger Gelwicks writes, "Anchor & Braille puts forth a serene and engaging journey with Songs for the Late Night Drive Home, and it's an eclectic early favorite for the year."[3] Christopher Smith, rating the album three and a half stars for Jesus Freak Hideout, describes, "Songs For The Late Night Drive Home is more than just a great name for a playlist, it is an alluring, thoughtful and cohesive musical experience."[4] Giving the album four stars from Jesus Freak Hideout, Scott Fryberger states, "Christian's latest solo venture finds the artist surrounding his signature vocals with an electronic array of soothing soundscapes that really make you want to take a late night drive for no other reason than to listen to this while you do it."[5] Jonathan J. Francesco, allotting the album four stars at New Release Today, says, "This is not Anberlin. But it is another side of master musician Stephen Christian, and virtually anything that guy sings is worth your time."[9] Indicating in a 90 percent review at Jesus Wired, Billy Praise writes, "no matter the personal issues and qualms I may have, it’s an undeniable fact that very few albums live up to their names or the reason for which they were created. Stephen Christian has done just that and more".[8] Luke Nuttall, signaling in a three and a half star review by Already Heard, states, "'Songs For The Late Night Drive Home’ is a surprisingly slick and well-executed album."[2]
