John Bush of AllMusic wrote: "Andy Toth and Paris the Black Fu proved themselves masters of the production game long ago, and though the music is often relegated to second-division status amidst all the role-playing, Funk All Y'all is great fun for all those bored by the scads of 'intelligent' techno out there."[2] Kori Golding of Chart wrote: "Funk and techno come together in a lubricated orgy that will make you want to get nekkid and slap some fat ass thighs and floss with a thong".[3] Village Voice's Hobey Echlin was less favourable, writing: "in the words of Spinal Tap, there's a fine line between clever and stupid, and before long, the Pubahs' imagination starts to outpace their minimal techno palette. [...] By the time the Pubahs' pun-happy song titles get better than the actual songs [...] and the vocals gum up otherwise slamming electro throwdowns [...] the Pubahs commit the greatest sin of all: forgetting this is, if not dance music, then at least party music, not a comedy album with a Groovebox."[4]
