In the initial months after release, fans could access bonus content from the band's website with their copy of the album. This featured videos of a Track By Track rundown of the album, a Welcome Message from the group, the photoshoot for the album, and live audio of "You're My Star" (Acoustic) and "I Stopped to Fill My Car Up" from the Greatest Hits tour.
Critical reception of the album was generally mixed. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has received an average score of 59, based on 8 reviews. The Sunday Times called it "their best album yet" but BBC critic Will Dean wrote "musically it's as solid as you'd expect [...] [b]ut Keep Calm... is unlikely to win Stereophonics any new fans," while Andy Gill, for The Independent, concluded that "overall, what comes across from Keep Calm and Carry On is confusion."
