The album garnered generally positive praise upon its release. Almost Cool Music Review called Oswalt "One of the funnier comics working today."[4] The Orange County weekly said of the album: "So gratifying and unhackneyed are Oswalt’s scathing riffs that by disc’s end, you want to buy him a bottle of wine that’s beyond your price range."[5] Stylus Magazine gave the album a B+, saying, " ... Werewolves is a classic comedy album in that it captures a seasoned comedian at his prime, spectacularly displaying his trademarks while proving himself able to bring in audiences skeptical of his cynicism."[6] Pitchfork also referred to this as Oswalt's magnum opus.
