At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, Fever Dream received an average score of 74% based on 9 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[1]

Ali Maloney of The Skinny described the album as "a suave cocktail of rolling snares, haunting synth structures, downtempo dub and jittering slices of shoegaze – tastefully evoking the strengths of various modern masters, from FlyLo to Amon Tobin – as swirling, cut-up vocals bounce gleefully around in the distance."[6]
