The album was generally well-received critically, although less-so than Basement Jaxx's previous records. Allmusic gave it 4 out of 5 stars, writing "at this point, it's impossible to imagine them topping themselves; an album that is merely deeply engaging and wildly entertaining cannot be considered a flop in any way."[2]

Pitchfork Media, while still giving the album a positive review, wrote, "Crazy Itch Radio isn't a bad album by any means; it just doesn't scream "best album of the year" from the moment you put it on."[9] NME, on the other hand, was more critical, writing "it's easy enough to ignore until a real stinker passes by".[7]
