Reception

In his Allmusic review, critic Thom Owens wrote, "There aren't any standout songs, but the entire album has a relaxed, welcoming vibe that makes it quite a pleasant listen." Tom Sinclair of Entertainment Weekly called StarGeezer "a rootsy album of traditional folk and wry originals," and added that Koerner "shows that four decades of obscurity haven't diminished his talent for making engaging music out of wholly familiar elements."
