Upon its release, Everything Is Good Here/Please Come Home generally received positive reviews from the music critics. Ned Raggett of Allmusic wrote: Michael Gira maintains the winning streak but explores a newer, more controlled delicacy on Everything is Good Here. He also further added that the album "finds his extremes of harrowing, wrenching music and performance, and a calmer, almost mystical approach, more integrated than ever before." Dominique Leone of Pitchfork praised the album, awarding it as "best new music." He stated: "The music that resonates with as much emotional weight and vital abandon is rare, and though I'm less inclined to look for answers in the mix than revel in its chaos, Everything Is Good Here/Please Come Home is a commendable, heady experience." Andrew Unterberger of Stylus Magazine also commented: "One of the greatest strengths of Everything is Good Here/Please Come Home is its ability to sound majestic without sounding epic – without all the cheesiness and pomposity that epic implies."
