Critical reception

Chris Dahlen of Pitchfork gave the album an 8.0 out of 10, saying: "With no breaks or gasps for air between the tracks, Cosmic Cleavage is Busdriver's tightest, most consistent album."[3] However, he added, "it might not be the best starting place for new listeners."[3] Paul Clarke of BBC gave the album 3.5 stars out of 5, describing it as "'acid jazz' in a literally hallucinogenic sense".[1]
