At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, Radical Connector received an average score of 75% based on 21 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[1]

Heather Phares of AllMusic gave Radical Connector 4.5 stars out of 5, saying: "This may not be Mouse on Mars' most ambitious album, but it's among the group's most successful -- it's not at all difficult to feel a connection to this truly intelligent dance music."[2]

Meanwhile, Kareem Estefan of Stylus Magazine gave the album a grade of C+ and said: "Even if it doesn’t advance from Idiology as much as its lengthy development might imply, Radical Connector proves that ten years into the game, Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma still have no intention to repeat themselves."[6]
