Pitchfork (6.8/10)[4]
PopMatters 7/10[5]

Ian Cohen of Pitchfork wrote that "the album collects the singles to create an account of the imperfect progress of someone trying to take back control of his life." He also stated: "Full Cold Moon is more honest in the sense that Eisold is asking himself harder questions than he did on songs like 'Underworld USA'," while also further adding that the listeners' appreciation for the album "would be inversely proportional to their appreciation of Cherish the Light Years."[4] PopMatters critic John Paul stated: "Spanning the whole of his stylistic spectrum under the Cold Cave guise, Full Cold Moon could well serve as an abbreviated retrospective of sorts, pulling in his minimalist darkwave experiments alongside his more overtly synth-pop compositions."[5] The Quietus' Chad Parkhill commented: ". Even if Full Cold Moon transpires to keep the real Wesley Eisold still hidden from his audience, it seems as though he finally knows who he (and by extension Cold Cave) is."[6]
