Awarding the album four and a half stars from Christianity Today, Andree Farias writes, "GRITS seems to want to take us by the hand, slowly guiding us through the many dichotomies of their never-conventional art."[1] Mark Sherwood, rating the album an eight out of ten at Cross Rhythms, describes, "This album is perfect for chillin', reflecting, driving and dancing - what more could you want? This is recommended for new fanz and old."[2] Giving the album four stars for Jesus Freak Hideout, Justin Mabee says, "Dichotomy B is basically a continuation of A, and is a must for any fan of Grits or good, quality rap music."[3] Sarah Verno, indicating in a five star review by The Phantom Tollbooth, states, "If you thought Dichotomy A was an accomplishment, get your hands on Dichotomy B and when you do, make sure to crank it up!"[4] Reviewing the album for GOSPELflava, Dwayne Lacy replies, "GRITS again show that they are far from slowing down, and that they are relevant with the times."[5]
