Writing in Smash Hits in 1979, Red Starr said the album was an "intriguing but only occasionally attractive array of verbal and musical images". Starr went on to say that it sounded like "pointless backroom self indulgence".
AllMusic's review was mixed, writing "It's true that Cabaret Voltaire's first two proper studio albums hardly match the greatness of later works like Red Mecca, 2 X 45 and even 3 Crepuscule Tracks. Despite this", Mix-Up "only helped solidify Cabaret Voltaire's status as an integral part of the extended frisson of 1978-1982 post-punk".
