Allmusic praised the record for its energy, describing "vocal and musical delivery that makes perfect sense from the land of the Boredoms," as well as the band's "frenetic" rhythm section and frontman Seiji's distinctive vocal and guitar style.[1] City Pages lauded the album for its "repellent fervor," but cited the slower numbers, such as "Planet Heart" and a mostly faithful cover of "I Can't Get No Satisfaction," as potential drawbacks.[2]

In a list that appeared in the September 2007 issue of Rolling Stone's local Japanese edition, Planet Of The Wolves was ranked 51st on a list of the "100 Greatest Japanese Rock Albums".[3]
