Feel received generally positive reviews from music critics. Gregory Heaney of Allmusic commented that "the talented vocal of Kellin Quinn making an album like Feel a shining light in an increasingly homogenized post-hardcore landscape."[8] Scott Heisel of Alternative Press stated "while the collaboration with MGK gels perfectly and could totally be a crossover smash, the collaboration with Memphis May Fire’s Matty Mullins is misguided" and continued "still, the good more than outweighs the bad, and as a whole, Feel is a big step up."[9]
