Allmusic's Jared Johnson said "in the post-Katy Perry world, it would be tough to find a more relevant, fresh, and thoughtful album than Britt Nicole's Lost Get Found. Following a well-received debut, the Christian singer's sophomore record finds her at her peak: infectious, vivid, and great on the dancefloor. Nicole channels the energy of many of her contemporaries, from Sara Bareilles to Avril Lavigne, Ashley Tisdale to Gwen Stefani."[8] Johnson wrote "thankfully, the album does not sacrifice substance for style; Nicole once again shows her strength of delivering meaningful lyrics relating to specific events and situations. Producers Robert Marvin (Mat Kearney, tobyMac) and Dan Muckala (Brandon Heath, Backstreet Boys) collaborated to give the album its high-energy output."[8]

CCM Magazine's Andrew Greer said "oscillating between vulnerable tracks that vocalize the struggle to surrender to God and sunny tunes of sheer fun, The Lost Get Found is an attractive set list. And though the lyrics may be a bit vague at times, this is pop music, and excellent pop music at that."[9]

Christian Music Review's Kevin Davis said "'The Lost Get Found' is a great and catchy album by Britt Nicole. The title track, 'Safe', 'Hanging On', 'Headphones', 'Walk On The Water' and 'Have Your Way' are my favorite songs on the album. Along with 'Life Light Up' by Christy Nockels this is my top album by a female artist and one of my top overall albums of the year. If you liked 'Relentless' by Natalie Grant and 'My Paper Heart' by Francesca Battistelli, then you’ll love 'The Lost Get Found' by Britt Nicole."[10][11]

Cross Rhythms' Simon Eden said "this is pop nearing perfection. Remarkably, every track on this, Britt's second album, has the potential to become a US/UK mainstream number one hit with sufficient airplay. That success is beginning to show with the album and the title track single both hitting number one on the US Christian charts. With slightly breathy, sultry, intimate verses balanced with powerful choruses, each song radiates such positivity that you wonder how they managed to get the rainbows and sunshine packaged in."[12] Eden wrote "Musically targeted at excitable teenage girls, the Christian aspect is brilliantly natural and portrays God as a normal integrated part of any teenager's life without dumbing down or hyped worship and is a major credit to Britt's songwriting. As a pop album it fits into a mainstream genre and consequently sounds similar to singers like Avril Lavigne, which is no bad thing."[12]

Jesus Freak Hideout's Nathaniel Schexnayder wrote that "despite some cliché lyrics and the absence of more straight-up terrific highlights, The Lost Get Found is a fun album which definitely is a solid follow up to Say It. But even though the pop dance tunes are catchy, Meyers and many other pop-flair dependent artists routinely produce similar ear candy. The blend of youth and a refined pop beat combined on the title track is likely the direction where Britt Nicole should go in order to stand-out more. After all, that's how the good get better."[13]

Louder Than the Music's Suzanne Physick said "Every once in a while you find a track that perfectly sums up something you have been trying to say for ages but have never managed to find the words. For me, Have Your Way is that track. It is the perfect pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Simply with that and the wonderfully written Headphones the album would be worth buying but the truth [is] that there are 9 other fantastic tracks that come along with them and you really shouldn't miss out on any one of them."[14]
