Allmusic 4/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review awarded the album 4 stars, stating: "Throughout the album, Reece digs into his bag of sonic tricks without ever doing anything that detracts from the music itself. Soundin' Off is a little bit uneven, but is never less than a solid pleasure to listen to."[3]
