Hive Mind was met with widespread critical acclaim. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 83 based on 24 reviews.[11] Carl Anka of NME gave the album five-out-of-five stars, claiming it to be "a towering demonstration of the collective intelligence of five artists approaching their zenith".[17] A. Harmony of Exclaim! wrote about the band's growth saying "there are no weak links on this album: from the production to the songwriting, each Internet bandmate brings a polished, more mature sound to the fore."[19] Jon Pareles of The New York Times praised the band's fusion of digitally processed and hand-played music, stating that the band "imperceptibly melds hand-played parts with loops and samples; whether or not it actually is, the music feels analog. Even where the drums are looped, the bass lines often drag and pull against the beat, breaking away from vamps to improvise and loosen things up."[20]
