Further In is noted for its broad variety of music and lyrics. Greg Brown is noted for his humor, songwriting, storytelling, touring, and his work on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion. A review written for Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange stated that "Further In is an order of magnitude more powerful, more perceptive, and more moving" then Browns previous album The Poet Game which was at the time considered "the grand opus of his life." The album also received a four star review in Rolling Stone magazine. A review in Dirty Linen described the album as Brown's best since Dream Café and praised the album for the "broad swath in subject matter" covered by the various songs.[2][5]

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Chris Nickson highly praised Brown and wrote of the album "Wonderfully and sparsely produced by guitarist Bo Ramsey, Further In may be the best outing yet from old-fashioned folkie Brown — which is saying plenty... the introspective Brown seems to deliver his most striking verse, effusive melodies, and heartfelt singing when he's satisfied."[1] Deborah Malarek of No Depression wrote the album "Simplicity has always been a winning technique for Brown, whose gently booming voice commands your full attention."[4]
