AllMusic 4/5 stars[2]

Andy Hinds at AllMusic gave Introspection four stars out of five, calling it "a breathtaking showcase of one of the best rock/fusion players in the world" and praising Howe's guitar work: "Howe's wide-interval scale figures and inspired phrasing—delivered at light speed—are truly remarkable. [...] Howe's playing has evolved so much from his early Shrapnel days that it's hard to believe it's the same person." In particular he highlighted the stylistic shift from Howe's shred-oriented 1988 debut album to a more fusion-based approach on Introspection. However, he criticized the album's production values as "antiseptic" and described the triggered drums as "totally lame".[2]
