The Entire City garnered critical acclaim upon release. Charlotte Richardson Andrews of The Guardian gave the album a five-star review, calling it a "stunning debut". Simon Price wrote the record "will haunt you long after listening", in his review for The Independent on Sunday. Jazz Monroe, writing for Drowned in Sound, gave it an eight out of ten, opining that "The Entire City - while slippery as a fish out of water, by all accounts - is crystal clear of ambition and concept." He also did another review for NME, giving it a similar score and calling it a "triumph of art-pop splendour – equal parts terror and temerity."
