Awarding the album four stars for CCM Magazine, Matt Conner states, "Dan Bremnes has followed suit with an even stronger full-length filled with memorable tunes", where he's "Coming full-circle, now as a new father himself, this release and promising future is ever-so timely."[2] Caitlin Lassiter, rating the album four and a half stars from New Release Today, describes, "Where The Light Is definitely doesn't have the feel of a debut album. From start to finish, this project presents effortless talent and a smooth set of skills like that of a much more seasoned artist."[8] Signaling in a perfect ten review for Cross Rhythms, Jonathan Harris says, "Both musically and lyrically, this album is exceptional."[5] Randy W. Cross, indicating in a four and a half star review from Worship Leader, states, "Thought-provoking, introspective lyrics join the upbeat, infectious grooves to make this a must have CD for your pop Christian music diet", with "a perfect blend within the pop variety of radio-friendly Christian music."[9]

Philip Aldis, giving the album three and a half stars at Louder Than the Music, writes, "Take some time to read the lyrics, and consider them. Dan is bold enough to say many times this is me: do you feel the same? It's worth a listen, to refer yourself into the reality clinic for a spiritual health check."[7] Rating the album four stars from 365 Days of Inspiring Media, Joshua Andre says, "Well done Dan for these eleven songs of wisdom, clarity and timely restoration".[1] Kelly Meade, signaling in a 4.7 out of five review by Christian Music Review, describes, "Where The Light Is features songs we all can relate to in one way or another."[4] Awarding the album nine and a half stars for Jesus Wired, Rebekah Joy states, "Where the Light Is is a phenomenal album."[6] Lauren McLean, indicating in a 3.8 review at The Christian Beat, recognizes, "you can easily hear the Gospel influence in each line of each song."[3]
