Critical reception

In their retrospective review, AllMusic panned the album, calling it "arguably the only unlistenable LP in Fra Lippo Lippi's career. [...] Fra Lippo Lippi were still trying to find themselves on In Silence; the band sounds lost, unable to find a hook that wasn't borrowed from The Cure or Joy Division." In their review of The Early Years, a compilation album comprising In Silence and the group's second album, Small Mercies, Tiny Mix Tapes called In Silence "the more interesting of the two" and the album "so strangely similar [to Joy Division] [it's] almost like having a new Joy Division/New Order album."


In Silence, along with Small Mercies, was re-issued by Rune Arkiv in 2003 as the compilation album The Early Years.
