Lambert & Stamp received positive reviews from critics. Rob Nelson of Variety, said in his review that "James D. Cooper's impeccably directed debut is a definitive screen bio of the Who and its-rock operatic rise."[10] David Rooney in his review for The Hollywood Reporter praised the film by saying that "A wonderfully alive behind-the-music chronicle that rescues two genuine mavericks from the footnotes of rock history."[11]
