According to review aggregator Metacritic, Bottle It In has received an average score of 79 based on reviews from 21 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[3] Sam Sodomsky of Pitchfork deemed the highlight of the album to be second single "Bassackwards", which he called "10 minutes of warped, psychedelic folk-rock, like a long sigh in the face of existential dread". Sodomsky noted that the album has a loose structure with "more accessible tracks up front and a meditative, somewhat indulgent back-half", and summarized that the album feels like Vile is lost in an "in-between moment".[5]
