Rolling Stone gave it 3.5 stars out of 5, stating, "producers Jacquire King and Steve Booker deftly curb her over-the-top tendencies" and, "The restraint serves her well. She's realized that sometimes holding a little back can make what's there hit with all the more force."

AllMusic was also positive, giving the album 3.5 stars out of 5, and wrote, "4th Street Feeling is largely a return to form for Etheridge; a record that reaffirms her place as a songwriter and recording artist who is in a class of her own.
