You Can't Fight What You Can't See has received a generally favorable reception from critics. A less favorable review, however, came from Kevin Addickes of Pitchfork, who wrote, "there's not much here to love, which just leaves one to wonder if history will remember any of Girls Against Boys' records beyond 1994's Venus Luxure No. 1 Baby. God knows I won't."[6]
